A set of 16 short stories by Jeffery Deaver. First class! Very clever writing and enjoyable plots. ( )

This guy's short story writing blew me away. I'm not one to reach for short stories, just have always preferred novels, but this guy can pack serious depth in a few pages. He's so clever. And creepy!! He also writes the Lincoln Rimes series, which I enjoy, but when I write short stories, I try and channel Jeffery Deaver. ( )

Sixteen short stories of variable quality by Jeffery Deaver. These include a Lincoln Rhyme novella which is I suppose of most interest to most people. Not that is is a really terribly good one. Of the other fifteen,I liked 'For Services Rendered' and 'Together' best. When Deaver tried to write an historical story "All The World's A Stage' he failed miserably. By the time we came to the last story,which was not at all bad,it was easy to guess the solution as by that time one could see just how the writer's mind was working. ( )

A great collection of short stories with the twist at the end.In most of the stories Deaver has been able to surprise you with unexpected endings. ( )

These stories reminded me of those published in the old Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine. Each story was worth reading, but with about three notable exceptions, they were nothing special. ( )
