By Jeffery Deaver
He's dazzled us. He's deceived us. And here is the short sharp shock treatment. Brilliantly twisted short stories from the number one Deaver.
'I can make good bad and bad badder, and most fun of all, really bad seem good.' Jeffery Deaver
And that is exactly what he does in this superb collection. In 'Beautiful' former supermodel Kari's stalker has followed her through retirement to her new small town home. The police can do nothing. The only thing that will end the nightmare is the stalker's death or her own. In the Edgar-nominated 'Triangle' Pete finds a true crime book - and uses the lessons contained therein to kill Mo's lover. The award-winning 'Without Jonathan' introduces us to Marissa, about to go on the first date of her life since she married Jonathan, with a man she met through the personals. As she wonders whether she will ever truly fall in love again, the man she is about to meet is killing a housewife in another part of town...
And in the brand-new 'The Christmas Present', we see a side of Lincoln Rhyme we've never met before.
Jeff Deaver was a lawyer before quitting work to become a full-time writer. He divides his time between Washington, DC and California.
