About the author

Jeffery Deaver (b. 1950) is an American author of thrillers. Born near Chicago, Illinois, he practiced law before writing his first novel, Manhattan Is My Beat, in 1988. This story of Rune, a video-store clerk who investigates a client’s murder, established Deaver’s talent for psychological suspense. He wrote two more novels starring Rune before moving on to Shallow Graves (1992), which introduced location scout and amateur sleuth John Pellam. The Bone Collector (1997) kicked off a long-running series starring paralyzed detective Lincoln Rhyme; this debut title was made into a film starring Denzel Washington and Angelina Jolie in 1999. Deaver alternates his Rhyme novels with standalone books such as Garden of Beasts (2004) and Edge (2010), as well as a series about body-language analyst Kathryn Dance. In addition to his success as an author, Deaver is an accomplished folk musician, and recorded an album to accompany XO (2012), the third Kathryn Dance novel. He lives in New York City.

  • (4/5)
    A great collection of short stories with the twist at the end.In most of the stories Deaver has been able to surprise you with unexpected endings.
  • (3/5)
    These stories reminded me of those published in the old Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine. Each story was worth reading, but with about three notable exceptions, they were nothing special.
  • (4/5)
    I greatly enjoyed this collection of short stories featuring twisted people in stories with excellent plot twists. Everytime I thought I knew what was going to happen, I was wrong. This was my first time reading anything by this author, although I had heard of him before. Some of the highlights for me were:*A beautiful woman goes to extreme lengths to rid herself of a stalker.* A former nerd, now an adult, gets revenge on his former tormentors. *A father's fishing trip turns deadly and the absolute best story features detective Lincoln Rhyme in a Christmas themed disappearance.I am looking forward to reading the Bone Collector and I will be reading the rest of the Lincoln Rhyme series in the near future.

    The least likely suspect, the unreliable narrator, the mind-bendingly unexpected plot twist. Go ahead. Think you know where the story's going. You'll be wrong every time. Contains some language.
