A thriller that will make you want to wipe clean your hard drive, cut up your ID card, shred all your bills and pull down your hat the next time you pass the closed-circuit TV cameras in the high street.
Deaver's protagonist Lincoln Rhyme is the man to call, of course, if you need someone to help you get out of a first-degree murder rap; because without him your chances of surviving against the information expert and ruthless killer and of The Broken Window are going to be nought.
Superbly performed by Kerry Shale and Trevor White, The Broken Window is a tour de force: Deaver simply demands to be read aloud.
Listen to it; think about it; learn from it.
And remember to cover your tracks.
