The Bodies on the Webchat

As many know, I rate Jeff Deaver’s ‘Garden of Beasts’ as one of the greatest golden age thrillers of all time. But Deaver’s work is also high-tech. For those who have not read his excellent techno-thriller ‘The Blue Nowhere’ [2001], you've missed a truly scary novel. In keeping with the techno-theme it was with pleasure that I received an email from Eleni Fostiropoulos [Publicity Manager at Hodder & Stoughton UK] alerting me to a Waterstones webchat that Deaver is conducting tomorrow –

On Tuesday 27th January between 12 noon and 5pm, Waterstones will be hosting a live web chat with bestselling American crime writer, Jeffery Deaver from his US home, giving readers the chance to discover more about his work. Find out more...

And look out for Jeff Deaver’s latest – ‘The Bodies Left Behind’ which has a frightening scenario -

A spring night in a small town in Wisconsin...A call to police emergency from a distant lake house is cut short...A phone glitch or an aborted report of a crime? Off-duty deputy Brynn leaves her family's dinner table and drives up to deserted Lake Mondac to find out. She stumbles onto the scene of a heinous murder...Before she can call for backup, though, she finds herself the next potential victim. Deprived of her phone, weapon and car, Brynn and an unlikely ally -- a survivor of the carnage -- can survive only by fleeing into the dense, deserted woods, on a desperate trek to safety and ultimately to the choice to fight back. The professional criminals, also strangers to this hostile setting, must forge a tense alliance too, in order to find and kill the two witnesses to the crime...
