Hard news / Jeffery Deaver

Revised ed.

New York : Bantam Books, 2001

Résumé: Rune is an aspiring filmmaker with more ambition than political savvy, paying her dues as an assistant camera person for the local news. But she’s got her eyes on the prize, the network’s hot news magazine, Current Events — and she’s got the story she knows will get her there. Poking around in the video archives, Rune spots a taped interview with Randy Boggs, who’s doing hard time in Harrison Men’s Correctional Facility for a murder he claims he didn’t commit. Rune can’t say exactly why, but she’s sure he’s innocent. If she can prove it, Current Events won’t merely report the news, it’ll make news — and Rune’s career. But what she could be writing is Randy Boggs’s epitaph — and her own. Rune’s newly discovered witness soon turns up dead. A hit man from Miami is on Rune’s trail, and Boggs is finding prison even more dangerous than before. Someone wants this story killed, and it could be the girl with the camera who ends up on the cutting room floor.

The skin collector / Jeffery Deaver

London : Hodder, 2015

Résumé: A new type of serial killer is stalking the streets of New York - one more devious and disturbing than ever before. They call this butcher The Skin Collector: a tattooist with a chamber of torture hidden deep underground. But instead of using ink to create each masterpiece, the artist uses a lethal poison which will render targets dead before they can even entertain the prospect of escape... Drafted in to investigate, NYPD detective Lincoln Rhyme and his associate Amelia Sachs have little to go on but a series of cryptic messages left etched into the skin of the deceased. As the pair struggle to discover the meaning behind the designs, they are led down a treacherous and twisting path where nothing is as it seems. And with the clock rapidly ticking before the killer strikes again, they must untangle the twisted web of clues before more victims - or they themselves - are next.

Résumé: Aspiring FBI agent Lucy Kincaid and her P.I. boyfriend, Sean Rogan, are heading to the Adirondack Mountains for a pleasant romantic getaway when they detour to help troubled friends, owners of a new resort who are battling malicious vandals. After Lucy and Sean pursue an arsonist into an abandoned mine shaft, Lucy stumbles upon an even more heinous crime—and the perfectly preserved remains of its victim. The only thing more disturbing than the discovery of the corpse is its sudden disappearance. While the local police remain skeptical, Lucy is dead certain that there’s a connection between the sabotage at the resort and the murder—one that the less-than-neighborly citizens of Spruce Lake seem to have a stake in keeping hidden. Then, when a cold-blooded sniper targets Sean and Lucy, FBI agent Noah Armstrong enters the fray to ensure that more bodies don’t hit the ground. Now three outsiders race to untangle a violent conspiracy before they end up like the rest of Spruce Lake’s secrets: dead and buried.
