A masterclass in the art of misdirection
Sometimes the purest escapism can only be found in a knuckle-bleaching thriller that messes with your blood pressure. This is a job for Jeffery Deaver, on top form with another case for special agent Kathryn Dance . . . a classically twisty slice of Deaver suspense
SOLITUDE CREEK displays a key element in Deaver's work: ironclad plotting
Deaver is a master of manipulation himself; his skillfully constructed plots are devilishly tricky to track and impossible to solve, just the way we like them.
The plotting here is endlessly surprising
Everything we've come to expect from a man at the top of his game . . . the killings, the suspense, the twisted motives and the way the hunters become the hunted make this a great read. Well done, Jeffery Devious.
