This standout collection from Twisted includes "Gone Fishing", in which a daughter begs her father not to go fishing in an area where there have been a series of brutal killings; a contemporary of the playwright William Shakespeare vows to avenge his family's ruin in "All the World's a Stage"; in "The Kneeling Soldier", a father's love turns deadly when he protects his only daughter from a stalker; and in the bonus story, "Interrogation", a detective grills a cold-blooded murderer as to why he killed a perfect stranger.
Diverse, provocative, eerie, and inspired, this collection exhibits the amazing range and signature plot twists that have earned Deaver the title "master of ticking-bomb suspense" by People.

"Jeffrey Deaver emerges as a master of the classic short story, bolstered by a bevy of ace readers in this collection of 'twisted tales'....High production values and committed, gifted actors make this an audiobook sure to remain in your collection." (AudioFile)
Not a bad collection of shorts, one or two nothing special but the rest quite good. "Gone Fishing" was particularly Hitchcockian ... I never saw it coming! Enjoy!
Likes any genre so long as it is done well.
I really liked "Twisted", so I jumped at the chance to buy this. I was disappointed. It was like the stories that the editor cut out of the first book, made it into this one.
