Publisher's Summary

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 suprises.

Jeffery Deaver's stories are widely published and acclaimed in such venues as Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine and Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine.

Great short stories

These stories remind me of the old Ellery Queen magazine. Each one has a series of twists and turns; as much as I thought I could guess the ending, I was always "caught" at the end. I enjoy listening to these when I don't necessarily have a long drive ahead of me, so I don't want to get too caught up in a book it will take a while to finish.
