    Diverse, provocative, eerie, and twisted, this collection of Jeffery Deaver's best crime stories exhibits amazing range and the signature plot twists that have made him a perennial best seller. With nods to O. Henry and Edgar Allen Poe, these beautifully crafted pieces are suspenseful spoonfuls of Deaver at his best. Listeners will be surprised by the subtlety of some of these stories and, as always, by the plot surprises.

    Appie Knoll is the kind of suburb where kids grow up right. But something is wrong. Fourteen-year-old Kevin Bartlett disappears. Everyone thinks he's run away -- until the comic strip ransom note arrives. It doesn't take Spenser long to get the picture -- an affluent family seething with rage, a desperate boy making strange friends...friends like Vic Harroway, body builder. Mr. Muscle is Spenser's only lead and he isn't talking...except with his fists

    Richard Delman says: "Early Parker, like Early Autumn. Very engaging."
    "A great follow up!"
    Overall

    Yes it's not the most inventive story but it's very entertaining. Spenser's charm is what keeps a sub par plot from sinking. I liked the book but if this wasn't a Spenser novel it would of felt bland. I wonder how readers felt back in the 70's when this was release? Maybe a weak follow up? I disagree. It keeps things interesting with small mystery but as said before...all because of Spenser. The reader is great and you can tell he understands Spenser's humor. Check it out!

    Spenser earned his degree in the school of hard knocks, so he is ready when a Boston university hires him to recover a rare, stolen manuscript. He is hardly surprised that his only clue is a radical student with four bullets in his chest. The cops are ready to throw the book at the pretty blond coed whose prints are all over the murder weapon but Spenser knows there are no easy answers. He tackles some very heavy homework and knows that if he doesn't finish his assignment soon, he could end up dead.

    William says: "Good start to a great series!"
    "Good start to a great series!"
    Overall

    I've gone years without attempting the Spenser series. I decided to take up the task of trying to read all the books in the series in order. This book is a great start. Without spoiling anything, you get a sense of Spenser's humor while getting a great mini mystery. Yes the book is unabridged and great for a quick trip but the reader is wear it counts. At first his narration comes off as dull but you start to enjoy his interpretation of the character. The story is nothing revolutionary but the plus side is that you can tell Parker respects the likes of Chandler, Hammett etc...which adds to the feel of the novel.

    Overall the book is a solid 4 out of 5 stars. Not the best, not the worst. If you're a completest like me then read it, if not still read it because it's the introduction of Spenser who is one of the greats in detective fiction.

    The audiobook has only a select few of the stories from the collection. Good stories though.

    On a freezing December night, with a full moon hovering in the black sky over New York City, two people are brutally murdered, the death scenes marked by eerie, matching calling cards: moon-faced clocks investigators fear ticked away the victims' last moments on earth. Renowned criminologist Lincoln Rhyme immediately identifies the clock distributor and has the chilling realization that the killer, who has dubbed himself the Watchmaker, has more murders planned in the hours to come.

    Gregory says: "Strained Believability (Possible Spoiler)"
    "Its alright."
    Overall

    I like Deaver alot but this story didn't grab me to well. The reader is good at some books but others he isn't to great. Lincoln Rhyme is a great character though.

    Keller possesses all the qualities of a professional killer. He's cool, confident, reclusive, icy, and ruthlessly efficient. But this seasoned hit man is also prone to self-doubt as he finds himself caught in the clutches of a mid-life crisis.

    Barbara A. Russell says: "Surprisingly Terrific"
    "Awesome book for cheap price"
    Overall

    I figured this would be a boring story or bad quality (considering its price). But this was a GREAT listen...check it out!

    The "maddog" murderer who is terrorizing the Twin Cities is two things: insane and extremely intelligent. He kills for the pleasure of it and thoroughly enjoys placing elaborate obstacles to keep police befuddled. Each clever move he makes is another point of pride. But when the brilliant Lieutenant Lucas Davenport, a dedicated cop and a serial killer's worst nightmare, is brought in to take up the investigation, the maddog suddenly has an adversary worthy of his genius.

    D says: "I love this series"
    "Great start to a great series"

    This is a long but great audiobook. Definately worth the read. The reader does a great job.

    Diverse, provocative, eerie, and inspired, this collection of Jeffery Deaver's best stories exhibits the amazing range and signature plot twists that have earned him the title "master of ticking-bomb suspense" by People. With nods to O. Henry and Edgar Allan Poe, these beautifully crafted pieces pulse with subtle intrigue and Deaver's incomparable imagination.

    maxpower says: "hooray for great plotting!"
    "Overall it's worth the time and money"
    Overall

    Alright this was the first time I ever took a chance on Mr. Deaver and now I practically own all his books...need to know anything else? BUT SERIOUSLY the stories are very entertaining and have amazing twist...hence "Twisted". I told one of the stories to my friend and he was just quiet for a couple of seconds then just looked at me (after obviously putting the puzzle together in his head) and said "whooaaaa that's amazing!"...anyways it's a good audiobook and I enjoyed the readers.
    ps. a review before mine said you don't need to pay attention to the stories to grasp whats going on...VERY TRUE...I was taking a test while listening to the stories...and I passed...
