Beach book of the week

Pirouetting out of harm's way with ease, the hit man known as the Coffin Dancer has dodged many a bullet. But he may finally have met his match in quadriplegic Lincoln Rhyme. A felon's nightmare even before the accident that ended his NYPD career, Rhyme, now a forensic consultant, is more relentless than ever. Especially when, as in his chilling new case, he has a personal score to settle.

Readers of Deaver's recent bestseller, The Bone Collector, know he is a master of ticking-bomb suspense. By upping the action here, he pushes the plot beyond plausibility. But with the heart-pounding pace, hairpin twists and a singular sleuth, you'll be too engrossed to care. (Simon & Schuster, $25)

Bottom Line: Breakneck thriller
