Review

The best psychological thriller writer around. - The Times

The most creative, skilled and intriguing thriller writer in the world . . . [Deaver] has produced a stunning series of bestsellers with unique characterisation, intelligent characters, beguiling plots and double-barrelled and sometimes triple-barrelled solutions. - Daily Telegraph

The pace is terrific, the suspense inexorable, and there is an excellent climax . . . If you want thrills, Deaver is your man. - Guardian

One of the world's best plotters - his intricate twists and turns catch out even the hardened thriller reader . . . This is a true master at work - elegant, assured, supremely crafted thriller writing at its very best. - Daily Mail --This text refers to the paperback edition.
