A highway patrol trooper notices something strange on the side of the road: a homemade cross, fashioned as a memorial. Except the date being 'remembered' is the following day - the day the police find a kidnapped teenage girl in the trunk of a car, left for dead.
Special Agent Kathryn Dance, the kinesics expert with the California Bureau of Investigation, is on the case. The teenage victim points her to an online community where accusations fly and the criticism turns from impartial to personal - and vicious. It looks as though the bullying went too far, and one teen has finally snapped.
Then further crosses appear. Now Dance must race against the clock to find the attacker before he can carry out his deadly plans for revenge....in the cyber world and the real.

"This is Deaver on cracking form, employing the usual helter-skelter pace with adroitly marshalled multiple plot strands and relentlessly ticking clock. Ratcheting up tension is something at which Deaver has few equals." (Daily Express)
"ROADSIDE CROSSES is a gripping story peopled with memorable characters. No surprise. Jeffery Deaver is grand master of the ticking-clock thriller." (Kathy Reichs)
"A masterclass in the art of misdirection. Jeffery Deaver dangles his red herrings artfully as he explores the dangerous overlap of the real world and the web. The eventual unmasking of the killer - after a double-twist - comes as a complete surprise." (Evening Standard
