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.

Very Bland

I listened to a few chapters then skipped a few. The narrators sounded like they could not care if they had an audience. waste of time and money.

Riveting

Thoroughly enjoyed these stories, so varied and captivating. Couldn’t stop listening, I’m now going to see if I can find some more!
