Fear kills - the fourth electrifying Kathryn Dance thriller by master of suspense and number-one best-selling author Jeffery Deaver. One mistake is all it takes. Busted back to rookie after losing her gun in an interrogation gone bad, California Bureau of Investigation agent Kathryn Dance finds herself making routine insurance checks after a roadhouse fire. But Dance is a highly trained expert in body language: Her most deadly weapon is her instinct, and they can't take that away from her.

The story was everything I expect from Jeffrey Deaver.

The narration was absolutely appalling, the worst I 've ever heard.

When novelist Owen Quine goes missing, his wife calls in private detective Cormoran Strike. At first, she just thinks he has gone off by himself for a few days - as he has done before - and she wants Strike to find him and bring him home. But as Strike investigates, it becomes clear that there is more to Quine's disappearance than his wife realises. The novelist has just completed a manuscript featuring poisonous pen-portraits of almost everyone he knows. If the novel were published it would ruin lives - so there are a lot of people who might want to silence him.

Best thriller/crime story I've read in ages, must admit I've read it after the tv series.
So much better than I expected.
I had put JK in, in one jonre I'm very ashamed to say.
I intend to read everything now.
I usually read David Baldacci, Jeffery Deaver, Ken Follett, Karen Slaughter.

I love to get totally involved in the stories I read .

I totally did with this, dog not walked, house work left as long as is possible.
Look forward to the next one .
Totally absorbing storytelling.
