    1. A quick read by Jeffery Deaver featuring 'Lincoln Rhyme'.When a man is murdered in a back alley, forensic detective Lincoln Rhyme and his partner Amelia Sachs are left with a mountain of evidence collected from the trash-filled alley, and their only lead is a young eyewitness. The man's eight-year-old son, who was riding along on his father's delivery route.But the murder victim may have been more than just a simple deliveryman. Rhyme and Sachs uncover clues that he might have been delivering a [...]

    2. The DeliverymanThis was a pretty good story I just wish it would have been longer. I'll be reading a lot more of Jeffery Deaver in the future.

    3. This was a fun little short. I liked the exasperation of Lincoln at the start with all the evidence that Amelia brought in. Of course if a crime was committed in an alley there is bound to be all sorts of crap!I loved the way that Lincoln's mind works, how from random things he can figure out things and how then Amelia becomes his legs to get the bad guy. I was a bit stunned at the ending, how the one bad guy was taken down.

    4. A Lincoln Rhymes short story A murder with a witness the victims son. Rhymes and Sachs are on it and using every bit of evidence they can to develop leads and the smallest mistake cost the criminals

    5. Denver is on of the best thriller writers around, and his portrayal of his characterDeaver is one of the best thriller writers around, and his portrayal of his characters is crisp and clean. I have read all his novels.

    6. An enjoyable short story. Unfortunately, in my opinion, the short story format is not really suitable for a Lincoln Rhyme story, which should be based on forensics and contain a twist. There is hardly any forensics in the story and no real twist. It does wet the appetite for the next full novel.

    7. Another masterpiece from on the true masters of crimeYou're kept on your toe through out this story and left hanging at the end. Will Amelia Sachs manage to save him but at what cost

    8. I'm a big fan of Jeffery Deaver and this story reminded me why. It kept me on the edge of my seat for every second.

    9. Nice little read, just like a few chapters of a Lincoln Rhyme book. Wonder if these were practice or could have possibly been the start of a book. Either way, entertaining.

    10. Meh, I'm glad this was only a 75 page story - 2*This story didn't lack the substance to be a novel and I was glad it was over, to be honest. Now, I'm ready for The Steel Kiss (#2).

    11. EXCELLENT short story. Rather than being a 500-page novel that drags, this short story was exciting all the way through! More authors should consider short stories.

    12. Normally, I don’t read short stories especially thrillers, because by the time the story has worked its way up to the thrilling aspect of the adventure, it ends. It's like being a kid on Christmas morning and finding out that the only presents that you got were socks and underwear. Huge anticipation but big disappointment. So I almost didn’t read Jeffery Deaver’s short story, The Deliveryman, but after finishing reading an early release of Deaver’s next Lincoln Rhyme novel The Steel Kiss [...]

    13. If you’re a fan of the Lincoln Rhyme’s series by Jeffery Deaver, be warned that while THE DELIVERYMAN is an enjoyable story, it is a short story and not as lengthy as you may be accustomed to.Narrator Edoardo Ballerini does a wonderful job giving distinct voices to the various characters. He breathes life into the characters with his cadence and mannerisms.When a deliveryman is murdered in a trash-filled alley, renowned forensic detective Lincoln Rhyme and his partner, Amelia Sachs, have lot [...]

    14. I can always count on Mr. Deaver for the unexpected, even in a short story!What I liked: I love the pacing in all of Mr. Deaver's works and The Deliveryman is no exception. In addition, the descriptions make me actually feel as if I'm there working either with the good guys or the bad.You'd think a short story depends on wrapping things up quickly and might feel rushed; that is not the case in The Deliveryman. It just means the author has packed more into an already tight, suspenseful story. Mr. [...]

    15. Deaver’s “Deliveryman”, published frankly mostly to market chapter 1 of his (then) upcoming full-length Lincoln Rhyme novel “Steel Kiss”, is at least a half-hour or so novella, unlike some of the really short teasers the authors are releasing in between books these days. Sachs and Rhyme are at their best with their forensic analysis of a veritable mountain of trash-like clues from a shooting in an alley. Turns out the victim ran a delivery service, not always of legit merchandise, as i [...]

    16. It was good to reacquaint myself with an author who is on my "like list" with this short story. As is usual with JD books, we are reminded of his characters and their backgrounds which I feel is unnecessary particularly in the short story format. This has put me off reading some of his other work in the past.I enjoyed this book but almost as it got going, the case was solved. Jumping from A to Z very quickly. I'm looking forward to reading The Steel Kiss as it will be my first full length JD boo [...]

    17. Intriguing tale of NYC crimeIn 18 or so lines Mr. Denver introduces Lincoln and the normal cast of characters and brings you fully up to date. His character development is stellar as you feel you know each of the key villains after a few short paragraphs. Another entertaining read.

    18. The short story was just that, short and pointless. No twists or turns to keep my interest. I don't know why good series writers put short stories with their characters out. They don't need them. The Lincoln Rhymebooks are so good, why distress the devoted readers with a senseless short story that could not possibly come close to a full book?

    19. More like 2.5 stars It was ok. Note to self: Don't skip books in a series, even if you are reading a novella in the series. (view spoiler)[ WTF?? Lincoln Ryme's in a wheelchair?? Well, I guess that blows that suspenseful surprise when I get around to reading the book that it occurs in. (palms self on forhead) (hide spoiler)]Too short and a bit too boring.

    20. PrequelI read the Steel Kiss e last Lincoln rhyme novel written before I read the short story . This is a must read before you read that novel It really should have been the first two chapters still a good read by itself

    21. This was released this morning in the UK and I read it in forty-five minutes. Very easy to read and enjoy (particularly if you've read the rest of the series in order). Nevertheless, it was a bit 'meh', but still got me excited for the new book next month!

    22. Only reason this isn't 5 stars is because it was too short and I was disappointed that it was a tease for the next book. I don't think Jeffery Deaver needs to do that to get people to read his books; especially Lincoln Rhyme, so that disappointed me.

    23. A great short by Jeffery Deaver. For those of us who have been invested since The Bone Collector, this was just enough to hold us over while we're waiting for Rhyme and Sachs' next big case. A perfect way to lead us into the Steel Kiss coming in March.

    24. Decent StoryThis book was available for free so after reading the description I took a chance. The story was decent and the characters were developed pretty well. The story did contain some twists that kept it interesting and I had a couple of wow mom

    25. Deaver's short stories never really deliver (excuse the poor pun) as well as his full length novels. His ability to write great twists is limited in this format, but this Lincoln Rhyme story still has some good moments.

    26. This part was good. I need to read the rest before my rating will be accurate.I am assuming it will be as good as all the others. He definitely holds my attention. A good tesd
