Summary

The fear inside meets the terror out there in a story of unsettling suspense from Mystery Writers of America Grand Master Jeffery Deaver.

Evan Hart lives the good life, enjoying his job, his sports club, the occasional date - and especially his comfortable home, nestled in the thick woods surrounding his property. But that tranquility is shattered when he realizes a figure from his past has arrived in town, armed with a knife, his intentions clear from the man’s attempts to break into Evan’s house in the middle of the night. The authorities can do nothing. 

Evan can only turn to the nightmares that plague his sleeping hours for answers. But the question is: Can those dreams save him, or are they part of the intruder’s plan?

Lavender

Sometimes a short story with nice twists and a subtle ending is all there needs to be.

Another great short story

This was another great short story. Again a little predictable but had a twist to it that was surprising. Worth the listen.

Boring!

These mini books are very boring. I tried all three and I couldn’t get interested in the plot. I dozed off for one.

One trick pony

Just once, I’d love for Jeffery Deaver to write a short story *without* a twist. That might surprise me.

As it is, despite my love of the short story form, and my enjoyment of Deaver’s novels, I think I’m giving up on his short stories.

His short stories offer little beyond the twist ending and unreliable narrator. There’s no beautiful language, telling characterization, or engaging descriptions. Once you catch on to how he uses ambiguous subject identification, the trick is exposed and readers see the ending coming from miles away.
