The Watchmaker’s Hand (November 2023)

When a New York City construction crane mysteriously collapses, causing mass destruction and killing several people, Rhyme and Amelia Sachs are on the case. A political group claims to be behind the sabotage and threatens another crane collapse in twenty-four hours, unless their demands are met. The clock is ticking.

With New York in a panic, the stakes are higher than ever for Rhyme and his team to unravel the plot before the timer runs out and more cranes crash down, reducing the city and its people to rubble. Then Rhyme realizes that the mastermind behind the terror is his own nemesis—the Watchmaker.

The Watchmaker’s Hand will be released on 23 November in the UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand, and on November 28 in the USA and Canada. The audiobook is narrated by Edoardo Ballerini. A special UK collector’s edition of The Watchmaker’s Hand is available for pre-order now in the UK.

Personally inscribed and signed books can be pre-ordered from the stores on the book tour before the signing events – these stores will ship. The Mysterious Bookshop in NYC will also have signed copies.


“The Rhyme novels are remarkably consistent: the writing is superb, the characters intriguing, the stories spellbinding, and the plot twists shocking. Fans of Deaver’s long-running series will want to read this one as soon as they can.”
