Publisher's Summary

Tate Collier, once one of the country's finest trial lawyers, is trying to forget his past. Now, a divorced gentleman farmer, land developer, and community advocate in rural Virginia, he's regrouping from some disastrous mistakes in the realms of love and the law. But controversy - and danger - seem to have an unerring hold on Tate. And even as he struggles to regroup, his alter ego is plotting his demise.

Aaron Matthews, a brilliant psychologist, has turned his talents away from curing patients to far deadlier goals. He's targeted Tate, his ex-wife, Bett, and their estranged daughter Megan for unspeakable revenge. Matthews, ruthless and hell-bent, will destroy anything that inhibits his plans. When their daughter disappears, Tate and Bett reunite in a desperate, heart-pounding attempt to stop Matthews, a psychopath whose gift of a glib tongue and talent for coercion are as dangerous as knives and guns.

Featuring an urgent race against the clock, gripping details of psychological manipulation, and the brilliant twists and turns that are trademark Deaver, Speaking in Tongues delivers the suspense punch that has made this author a best seller. It will leave you speechless.

Deaver does it again.

Loved it, Deaver never disappoints, and the narrator was spot on with tone and pace.

A Plymouth Police Car? Gimme a break!

This has to be about the second worst book I have had the displeasure of listening to (and I have listenend to many!). The only reason anything 'works' (and that's a stretch, as this book didn't work for me) is because the author has a handy contrived reason to make it work at the particular moment that he needs it. But when he tells me about one of the protagonists being pursued by a Plymouth police car, I almost stopped listening. How long ago did Chrysler (now Daimler-Chrysler) discontinue manufacturing Plymouths? Were Plymouths ever used as police cars? And this is a 'current' story because the villain drives a Mercedes 560!

Just OK

Passes the time and keeps one's interest, but then easily forgotten.
