Pokój straceń

Foto von Jeffery Deaver

Na Bahamach zamordowany zostaje mężczyzna uznawany za terrorystę. Nowojorska prokuratura ma podejrzenia, że za zamachem stoi rządowa jednostka. O pomoc zostaje poproszony Lincoln Rhyme. W księgarniach Pokój straceń – dziesiąty tom serii przygód niepełnosprawnego kryminalistyka.

Największy umysł kryminalistyki

Tym samym powraca jeden z najciekawszych bohaterów literatury kryminalnej i sensacyjnej. Lincolna Rhyme’a poznaliśmy w 1997 roku dzięki Kolekcjonerowi Kości. Niemal całkowicie sparaliżowany (porusza tylko głową i jednym palcem!) kryminalistyk niechętnie zgadza się pomóc nowojorskiej policji przy jednej ze spraw. Powrót do dawnego zawodu przywraca mu chęć do życia, którą stracił po dramatycznym wypadku. Rhyme, jak Sherlock Holmes, nie znosi nudy. Nie może się poruszać, zmusza więc do wysiłku umysł.

Można powiedzieć, że Jeffery Deaver przewrotnie wykorzystał znany z klasycznej literatury kryminalnej motyw bohatera, który rozwiązuje zagadki, nie ruszając się z fotela. Wybitne osobowości powieści detektywistycznych wykorzystywały do pracy potęgę swojego umysłu. W swoim przerobionym na laboratorium mieszkaniu, Lincoln przegląda dowody zebrane z miejsc zbrodni i – znowu niczym Holmes – ze źdźbła trawy i grudki ziemi wysnuwa niesamowite wnioski. Jest przecież mistrzem kryminalistyki.

Postać Lincolna, choć sarkastyczna jak zawsze, stale się rozwija – widać, że Deaver ma pomysł na tego bohatera. W nowej powieści Rhyme wreszcie ruszy w teren. I to od razu na Bahamy. Oczywiście jego celem będzie zbadanie miejsca zbrodni, ale przy okazji nie pogardzi szklanką rumu. No i, oczywiście, wpadnie w poważne kłopoty.

Zespół Rhyme’a

Amelia Sachs – przed wstąpieniem do policji była modelką. Z racji urody przeciwnicy mogą jej nie doceniać, ale jest znakomitym strzelcem, uwielbia też szybkie samochody. Cierpi na artretyzm.

Lon Selitto – nowojorski detektyw, służył w policji razem z Rhymem. To on namówił kryminalistyka, by ten powrócił do pracy.

Fred Dellary – niezawodny agent FBI, specjalista od działania pod przykryciem.

Ron Pulaski – młody funkcjonariusz polskiego pochodzenia, uczy się zasad kryminalistyki pod czujnym okiem autoryteów.

Mel Cooper – technik laboratoryjny, prywatnie miłośnik tańca towarzyskiego.

Thom Reston – opiekun Lincolna, jedyny, który potrafił znieść jego trudny charakter. I jedyny, który potrafi mu się odgryźć.

Puls rośnie

Do tej pory Rhyme był raczej bezpieczny. W zamian Deaver nie szczędził niebezpieczeństw jego przyjaciołom – stałej grupie bohaterów tworzących zespół dochodzeniowy. Najważniejsza pośród nich jest oczywiście Amelia Sachs – i prywatnie, i zawodowo partnerka kryminalistyka. W nowej powieści będzie musiała walczyć nie tylko z mordercą, lecz także nieoczekiwanym problemem… Prócz niej pojawią się inni ulubieni bohaterowie – Lon Selitto, Mel Cooper, Fred Dellary czy policjant polskiego pochodzenia Ron Pulaski. Nie zabraknie też opiekuna Rhyme’a – Thoma. Utarczki słowne między nimi należą do największych atutów całej serii.

Deaver uczynił swojego bohatera sparaliżowanym, ale chciał pisać książki sensacyjne – i o tę dynamikę dbać mają wymienione wyżej postaci. To one fizycznie ścigają morderców i nieraz stają oko w oko ze śmiertelnym zagrożeniem. Co pięć stron autor pakuje bohaterów w kłopoty, nie dając im odetchnąć nawet na chwilę. Jeżeli utożsamiamy się z bohaterami – a utożsamiamy, szczególnie jeśli jesteśmy stałymi czytelnikami serii – to napięcie rośnie w nieznośnym tempie. Trzeba szybko przekręcać kartki.

Pisarski no-look pass

Deaver jak zawsze bawi się z czytelnikiem. W sporcie istnieje pojęcie „no-look pass”. Polega ono na tym, że zawodnik podaje piłkę, patrząc w zupełnie innym kierunku, co myli przeciwnika. Deaver stosuje takie no-look passy bardzo często. A to rzuci od niechcenia informację, która później okaże się kluczowa, a to skomponuję scenę tak, by obnażyć naiwność czytelnika. Wiadomo, po przeczytaniu kilkunastu powieści tego autora jest się już na to wyczulonym i nie zawsze daje się nabrać, ale… w Pokoju straceń autor i tak zdołał mnie zaskoczyć, choć trzymałem się na baczności.

Książki Deavera zawsze pełne są ciekawostek, np. o gotowaniu

Zbrodnia i kuchnia

Na przestrzeni dziesięciu książek Lincoln Rhyme zetknął się z najróżniejszymi sprawami. Deaver zawsze szukał ciekawych motywów przewodnich dla swoich powieści. Były to na przykład nielegalni imigranci z Chin, świat magików i iluzjonistów, elektryczność, kradzieże tożsamości – zawsze przedstawione z godnym podziwu pietyzmem. Trzeba przyznać, że po lekturze Deavera pozostaje w głowie jakaś ciekawostka (tym razem np. o zamieszkujących Karaiby kameleonach). W Pokoju straceń główny motyw to aktualny dziś temat zwalczania terroryzmu „na zaś”(czy moralne jest pozbycie się potencjalnie niebezpiecznej osoby? Czy można dopuścić przypadkowe ofiary takich działań „dla większego dobra”?), ale obok pojawia się bardziej prozaiczny – gotowanie. Pisarz zadbał o czytelników i umieścił zestaw przepisów, wykorzystywanych przez jedną z książkowych postaci, na swojej stronie internetowej. Podobnie było przy okazji poprzedniej książki – Twój cień, gdzie bohaterką była piosenkarka. Jej utwory zostały nagrane i udostępnione do odsłuchania w internecie.

– Dopóki będę miał pomysły – odpowiedział Jeffery Deaver na pytanie, jak długo będzie pisał o przygodach Lincolna Rhyme’a i Amelii Sachs. Jak na razie pomysły mu dopisują. A w Stanach już niedługo premiera najnowszej powieści autora – The October List. Będzie się działo.
