TROUBLE IN MIND
Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Thriller
Deaver is the indisputable master of the plot twist, and this collection of short stories only reinforces this. There is a mix of stories here, some featuring his popular characters — such as Lincoln Rhyme — and other tales just meant to terrify. Deaver mentions in the prologue that one of the stories, “Paradice,” has what he considers one of his all-time best twists; that’s arguable, but what isn’t is that this is a terrific set of stories that invokes memories of the old television series Alfred Hitchcock Presents.
Twelve stories are featured in this third collection of Deaver’s short stories. Lincoln Rhyme makes a couple of appearances while Kathryn Dance makes one as does John Pellam, Deaver’s protagonist from his early days of writing. Several stories invoke the past. (GRAND CENTRAL, Mar., 496 pp., $26.00)
