August 2015 Book of the Month.

Deaver’s third collection of short stories contains twelve pieces and every one one of them a gem of a read full of clever plotting, surprise, tension and the occasional 'I never saw that coming' moments. Six are new; one Lincoln Rhyme, one Kathryn Dance, one John Pellam and three stand-alones. Two of the older ones, The Therapist and Forever, border on the occult and one, Paradise, with its terrific twist, is the author’s favourite. It is in fact a wonderful introduction to his work that we are pretty sure you'll quickly get hooked on.

If you like Jeffery Deaver you might also like to read books by Mark Billingham, Nelson Demille and Gerald Seymour.

Synopsis

Trouble in Mind by Jeffery Deaver

TENSION ...An aging actor attempts to revive his career by entering a celebrity poker game for a reality TV show. Can he outwit his devious opponents, or is his fate doomed from the outset? CONSPIRACY ...A successful crime writer dies under seemingly natural circumstances, but for one cop, doubts are lingering. There's certainly motive for murder - or is there more to the case than meets the eye? MURDER ...Lincoln Rhyme is announced dead, shot by one of his suspects in cold blood. Is this the end of the line for the criminalist, or just another twist in the tale?

Reviews

'It is an addictive experience ... full of surprises and twists and turns of many different sorts, all of it shot through with the superior tradecraft to which Deaver demands of himself ... it will find a permanent place in your literary collection and memory.' bookreporter.com
