As a dyed-in-the-wool Deaver fan, reviewing his work is difficult, mainly because choosing the parameters against which to measure the best in class is a tricky business; do I compare to other writers or to earlier JD work? So I must say, at the outset, that these are all Jeffery Deaver stories and so are, by definition, far above the average to begin with. But much of the praise stops there.

There are 12 stories in this anthology. Some are exceptionally short and others are quite lengthy. My grumble here is with the publishers as it seems, to me, that they seek to cash in on the 'Deaver wave' by publishing these shorter stories in a variety of books so that, to get to a couple of new stories, an avid fan has to also buy several that he/she has read previously. That's the case here as, not only had I already read all three stories that are within the recently released 'Triple Threat' ('Fast', 'Game' and 'Paradise'), but I had read 'A Textbook Case' which had previously been published as a stand alone short novel. That means that one third of this book was old material for me. And at £9.49 for this Kindle version, that isn't cheap and means that I threw £3.16 away. It would be nice (but stupid) of the publishers to print on these books that there's no point in buying 'Triple Threat' if you've already read 'Trouble In Mind' as they are exactly the same stories.

Unfortunately, these four stories are also not among Mr D's best work either. 'Fast' has a very thin plot and the end is telegraphed way in advance. In fact, anyone who has seen the TV show in which Derren Brown steals a painting will have, essentially, read this book.

For the quality of the stories this book is easily worth 5 stars - fans of Jeffery Deaver certainly won't be disappointed with the storytelling.

However, why do publishers insist on repackaging books in order to trick readers into paying twice for the same thing? No sooner had I downloaded the book to my Kindle I had a distinct sense of deja vu, and sure enough I had recently read 3 of the stories from another Kindle download that I had recently purchased.

If this had been the hard copy of the book I would have immediately returned it, but of course Kindle purchases don't have that option so that's £9.49 wasted.

So far the stories that I didn't already own have been up to scratch, but do yourself a favour and don't waste money on a cynical repackage by the publishers.

So Jeffrey joins the rest in repackaging previous stories - the product details should have made it clear that the first 3 lengthy stories have previously been published, which means that Deaver fans are paying twice - and at £9.49, that's no joke. The stories are all good but the book is tainted by a feeling of having been conned.

This book hasn't held my interest so it will be going back on the bookshelf unread. I've only managed one story (Fast) and as the other reviewer has said, you do get a distinct sense of deja vu. Some of the tales in this book have appeared as stand alone purchases - A Textbook Case for example was published in April last year and is still available today (4 April 14) to buy on its own for 99p!

I would have preferred this to have been a completely new collection from JD and also for at least one of the stories to have been just one page with a nice big twist! Now that would have been a challenge! I do like Jeffery Deaver and will continue to buy/read his books but I'm not the fan I was. I found even in the short story format, he found it necessary to remind us about the background to his characters. Very annoying!

If you are new to Jeffery Deaver then this is worth a look but if you are a die hard fan, I'd recommend checking out what stories are included before purchase as you will probably find you have read them all before. For me, its going to be a book to dip in and out of as and when I want a JD fix !

I love Jeffrey Deaver however I guessed the plots of the first few stories straight away then gave up reading the tale about the truck losing its brakes after a few pages and deleted the book from my kindle. Sorry Mr Deaver but I hated this book.

i love jeffery deaver but half of this book of short stories i had read before it was really frustrating.
if it hadn't of been for the last two stories i would be asking amazon for a refund.
so beware if you have read all deaver books as i have it defiantly lived up to it's title it troubled my mind that these stories could be rehashed as fillers for a so called new book

I was quick to buy this book via Kindle as soon as it was published only to discover it was a compilation using some stories that had appeared in other compilations that I had previously bought - 3 repeat stories made up a huge part of the book. The other stories I felt were not up to the usual standard of twist and suspense so overall I was very disappointed with this book. In future I will only buy once the price has come down......
