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.

Deaver connaît son métier sur le bout des doigts et ce recueil de nouvelles ne décevra pas les fans de l'auteur. Certes, les mécanismes sont toujours un peu les mêmes, mais bien malin celui qui saura réellement anticiper le dénouement de chacune de ces intrigues. On retrouve, dans certaines des nouvelles, les personnages habituels de Deaver : Lincoln Rhyme, Katherine Dance etc. Très bon divertissement.

HASH(0x92cb8534) étoiles sur 5 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.

HASH(0x92cb893c) étoiles sur 5 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!

HASH(0x92cb8744) étoiles sur 5 Good mix of interesting characters 9 juin 2014

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.
HASH(0x92cb8978) étoiles sur 5 A mostly middling, forgettable batch of stories 19 avril 2014
Par Josh Mauthe - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
Between the return to form for Lincoln Rhyme that was The Kill Room and the absolutely fantastic The October List, Jeffery Deaver has been coming back into his own lately, and that made me awfully excited to check out a new batch of short stories. I'm a big fan of Deaver's first two collections (Twisted and More Twisted), and the promise of more of Deaver's no-holds-barred twisty tales had me awfully excited. Unfortunately, Trouble in Mind is a pretty big letdown, with a bunch of stories that run the gamut from "fine" to "passable" to "dull," depending on the one you read. There's a pair of Lincoln Rhyme stories, with one being utterly predictable ("The Obit") and another having a great central idea that never goes anywhere especially interesting ("A Textbook Case"). Kathryn Dance makes an appearance in "Fast," which finds the interrogator working against the clock to solve a bombing, and for all my lackluster feelings about the Dance books, the story works better than most in this collection. "Paradice" feels like a step towards neo-noir, but it never comes together quite as well as you hope it's going to; "The Therapist" starts off great but falls apart into silliness; "Bump" and "The Plot" are pretty predictable as they unfold, while others ("Reconciliation" and "The Weapon") just kind of fizzle from the get-go. It all ends with an enjoyable enough novella called "Forever" about a statistics-happy officer who ends up working a murder case, and while it's a fun read, it never feels especially great or essential in any way. Deaver's capable of great work and great short stories, but these mostly disappoint; while few are outright bad, none achieve the peaks he's capable of, and as a collection, it mainly feels mediocre and old-hat.

Par Ila in Maine - Publié sur Amazon.com

I am one who despairs that the art of short story telling is a dying one. Then along comes a book like this one by Mr. Deaver and hope rises again in me.

I prefer to read short stories one at a time and savor them with a cup of coffee in the morning to begin my day rather than to rush through them with the intent to get to another one, much as I imagine the writer puts them out. I find them more enjoyable this way.

I have to confess that my reading of Jeffrey Deaver is mostly limited to the Lincoln Rhyme series. I find those fascinating and I've only bought one other book that was not a Rhyme book, The Empty Chair which I enjoyed immensely. This is due to financial limitations, not because I don't want to read other books by him though. I am unable to go to the library and haven't found his available to borrow over the Kindle in my area.

I was delighted by this collection of stories, I had not read any of them before but even if I had I would not complain. Unless I had a photographic memory I am sure re-reading one or more would have allowed me to pick up something I missed the first read through.

It would be extremely difficult to pick one favorite for me in this collection, there are puzzlers, what I call 'got-cha's' where you think you have it all figured out and get to the very last sentence and boom, one word is changed and you're like "Wowsers" I did not see that coming. Those are my favorites, I understand they were popular on Twilight Zone.

The story Bump has stayed with me longest out of the non Lincoln Rhyme stories in the book. No spoilers but what would you do to gain back your 'glory days'? What would you be willing to partake in to be on top again, king of the world, when things were at their best? This story deals with that and the trappings of success.

Both of the Rhymes-Sachs stories in the book are in my opinion excellent: my favorite being, A Textbook Case.

If you like a mixture with your cops and robbers stories, this book will fill your menu completely in my opinion.

I received an ARC from Net Gallery in exchange for my honest opinion and the option of reviewing it.
