This review is from: Twisted: Collected Stories of Jeffery Deaver (Paperback)
From Deavers first twisted title we are presented with several short stories all in the general trend that Deaver follows of fictional crime/thriller. Ive long since been a fan of Deaver and having not read any of his books for a good long while was drawn to this book. Im glad I was.
I love short stories and Deavers are brilliant and should show other authors how its done. All of these stories have Deavers trademark twists and turns and unexpected outcomes. These stories really are great, my personal favourite was 'For Services Rendered' which I think showcases Deavers writing in the best way. Based on a psychologist who has to analyse a woman to find the source of her nightmares and attempt to cure her growing insanity, and well I cant really say much more as it's a short story and I dont want to tell you the whole plot.
This is just my personal favourite and one of many that you will find in the twisted collection, had I not read his other books this one would no doubt have made me go out and buy them anyway. Really this is a great buy and for first timers of Deavers writing or those who may have begun to find some of his other stories marginally predictable, this is an excellent book.
