Revue de presse

"In Mr. Deaver's kaleidoscope world, the odds seem to change with each turn of the page."―The Wall Street Journal

"Outstanding, gripping, brilliant, spectacular."―Publishers Weekly on Twisted: The Collected Stories of Jeffery Deaver

"Every one of these gems includes at least one act of narrative sleight of hand: sometimes it's a subtle shift in direction, but more often it's a neck-wrenching, right-angle turn."―Booklist on Twisted, Volume II

"A mystery hit for those who like their intrigue short and sweet... they feature tight, bare-bones plotting and the sneaky tricks that Mr. Deaver's title promises."―New York Times on Twisted: The Collected Stories of Jeffery Deaver

Présentation de l'éditeur

Fiendish suspense. Shocking twists.
Twelve diabolical tales.


New York Times bestselling author and highly acclaimed storyteller Jeffery Deaver-the undisputed "grand master of the plot twist" (Booklist)-returns with a dazzling new collection of short stories. In these twelve electrifying tales (including six written just for this anthology) Deaver proves once again his genius for the unexpected-in his world, appearances are always deceiving.

A devoted housekeeper embarks on a quest to find the truth behind her employer's murder. A washed-up Hollywood actor gets one last, high-stakes chance to revive his career. A man makes an impulsive visit to his hometown, and learns more about his past than he bargained for. Two Olympic track hopefuls receive terrorist threats. And Deaver's beloved series characters Lincoln Rhyme, Kathryn Dance, and John Pellam return in stories now in print for the first time.

A great way to get to know Deaver, or just get more of his work 2 juin 2014
Par Lyn Meadows - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
Many of you may be familiar with Jeffery Deaver through his Lincoln Rhyme or Kate Daniels books. Although he has been on my To Read list as an author, I have yet to read any of his books, mainly because I have so many series going currently that I have been reluctant to start another one. I found that reading this book of short stories was the perfect way for me to acquaint myself with his writing.

As it turns out, Deaver has been writing short stories for years. As it states in the sub-title, Trouble in Mind, is his third published volume of short stories. The author himself says in the Author's Note to Trouble in Mind that he began writing at age 11 with a short story (two chapters in length). His latest effort is comprised of 12 stories, most of them in the mystery/crime genre that established readers of Deaver's books would expect. For those of you who love his series, there are two Lincoln Rhyme stories, one Katherine Dance and one John Pellam. Don't worry, though, if you are not familiar with the series. I read and enjoyed all four of the stories and did not feel lost at all. In fact, I thought they were a great way to introduce me to his series and characters. A way to "try them on for size" you might say. The volume includes six other stories in the crime genre, all of which are excellent.

In addition to the mystery stories there were two stories with a more sci-fi or fantasy bent. Deaver himself calls these "genre benders" and tells us that one thing he likes about writing short stories is that they "allow an author to step out of genre more easily than novels do." I would say he did a good job stepping out of genre, as one of these stories, "Forever" was my favorite from the whole book.

To be honest, though, I loved every one of the stories in this compilation, and cannot wait to read more by this author. In addition, I am anxious to start at least one of his series, as the stories included here peaked my interest in them. Since I live in Northern California, I may start with the Katherine Dance books as they take place in the local area where I live. Whether you are a tried and true Jeffery Deaver fan, or just someone who wants to explore his work, I would recommend Trouble in Mind. For me it was a great place to start with Jeffery Deaver's work.

Thanks to Grand Central Publishing for making this title available through Netgalley in exchange for my review.

Great short story collection 19 juin 2014
Par William D. Sommers - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Each story is great, a few classics. Each has a star, some familiar and some new. A few are identified with only to find you are supporting a psychopath. Incredible collection of very well written stories. I can't wait for several of the characters to get a full book story. One of Deaver's best yet!

Deaver with that develish mind is as thrilling and exciting as always.... 8 août 2014
Par Joymarie (Lover of the written word) - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Jeffrey Deaver is at the top of my list for suspense and intrigue. That some stories were repeats did not bother me at all because each one if his writings is a gem and to re-read some is a pleasure. I have done that with many of his novels...just pick them up again a year later and enjoy them all over again. He is so knowledgeable and skillful at grabbing your attention and keeping you turning pages.
I loved this book...reading the familiar stories was like visiting an old friend and the others prove to me that he will always retain that special touch that reaches out and almost stops you from breathing until you reach the end.
There is no doubt he is a master. A terrific book with which to introduce Deaver to a new reader.
I enjoyed every word.

Good mix of interesting characters 9 juin 2014
Par Jason Hicks - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Glad to see the political dialogue was recalled back in this book. The characters were a little more real than in his last offering. The final story, Forever, was a very good interest keeping read, almost worth the purchase if had been a stand alone.
