Reviews

Kathryn Dance, an investigator with the California Bureau of Investigation, returns from Deaver's The Cold Moon (where she was a secondary) in this post-prison break pulse-pounder. Dance is the lead cop handling the escape of psychopathic killer Daniel Pell, dubbed "Son of Manson" by the press for his "family" of young runaways and his most horrendous crime, the murders of computer engineer William Croyton, Croyton's wife and two of their three children. The only child left alive, nine-year-old Theresa, is known as the Sleeping Doll. Pell, charismatic and diabolically intelligent, continually eludes capture, but Dance, a specialist in interrogation and kinesics (or body language), is never more than a few suspenseful minutes behind. Dance is nicely detailed, and procedural scenes where she uses somatic cues to ferret out liars are fascinating. The book sags in its long middle, but toward the end Deaver digs into his bottomless bag of unexpected twists and turns, keeping readers wide-eyed with surprise, and leaving them looking forward to more of the perspicacious Dance.

'This is a novel that will chill your blood on the warmest day of any summer holiday. Keep looking over your shoulder...' -- Independent on Sunday 'The best psychological thriller writer around' -- The Times 'Jeffery Deaver is a master at crafting intricate crimes that are solved through guile, tenacity and sheer creative genius.' -- Harlan Coben 'There's no question ... about Deaver's unexcelled ability to pull the wool over your eyes. When he describes a colorless, odorless glass of liquid as water, don't assume it is until somebody drinks it down - or maybe till an hour later.' -- Kirkus Reviews on THE TWELFTH CARD '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
