Summary

This collection of short stories from king of suspense Jeffery Deaver grips with every listen.

An aging actor attempts to revive his career by entering a celebrity poker game for a reality TV show. A successful crime writer dies under seemingly natural circumstances, but for one cop, doubts are lingering. Lincoln Rhyme is at the end of the line, or is it just another twist in the tale?

Not Deaver's best

I'm a big fan of Jeffery Deaver's novels, but as with earlier short story collections this was disappointing. Partly because of the narrators (most read it badly), but also because the stories are formulaic, and don't end soon enough - by that I mean they'd have much more of a 'lock' if he didn't feel the need to add a section tying everything up. I'd much prefer him to finish on the slap of the story twist.
