Trouble in Mind

By Jeffery Deaver

  • Hardback
  • £18.99

A unique collection of twelve short stories from Number One bestselling author Jeffery Deaver.

A cunning collection of short stories from the master of misdirection, including original tales featuring the hugely popular series characters Lincoln Rhyme and Kathryn Dance.

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?

King of suspense Jeffery Deaver grips with every page, setting out a devilishly clever path where nothing is as it seems.

If you think you know the ending, think again . . .
