People magazine has hailed the New York Times bestselling author as “a master of ticking-bomb suspense.” Now, in the latest addition to the Kathryn Dance series, Jeffery Deaver tells the chilling tale of a vigilante seeking revenge—in both the cyber world…and the real.
• Chilling plot: An innocent blog post about a tragic car crash prompts cyberbullies to mount a vicious online attack against a troubled teenager. Pushed over the brink, he seeks revenge against fellow classmates and local citizens, planting roadside crosses as a prelude to his carnage and throwing the Monterey peninsula into panic. Body language expert Kathryn Dance and her fellow agents from the California Bureau of Investigation, aided by Monterey County Sheriff ’s Senior Deputy Michael O’Neil, must race against the clock to stop the boy before he completes his horrifying plans for revenge.
• Award-winning author: Jeffery Deaver has twice won British Crime Writers’ Association Awards—for Best Thriller and Best Short Story of the Year—and has received the Book of the Year Award from the mystery Writers of Japan. He’s been nominated for six Edgars from the mystery Writers of America and is a three-time recipient of the Ellery Queen readers’ Award for Best Short Story of the Year. His acclaimed novel, A Maiden’s Grave, was made into an HBO movie starring James Garner and Marlee Matlin. Deaver’s The Bone Collector was made into a feature release from universal Pictures that starred Denzel Washington. With every new book he writes, he reaches new levels of success.
• Dynamic series: Deaver’s Kathryn Dance series has proven itself a winner. The latest Kathryn Dance novel, The Sleeping Doll, was a phenomenal bestseller that left his fans clamoring for more and sold as many copies as his prior, Lincoln Rhyme, book. Additionally, Deaver’s novels have been consistent bestsellers in the past: The Broken Window debuted at #7 and The Cold Moon debuted at #5 on the New York Times bestseller list.
