From the bestselling author of The Cold Moon come unabridged stories of spine-tingling suspense!

In the tradition of O. Henry and Edgar Allen Poe, Jeffery Deaver’s latest collection of intricately plotted, bone-chilling short fiction includes an all-new story featuring Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs.

While best known for his many novels, Jeffery Deaver is also a short story master. He is a three-time recipient of the Ellery Queen Reader’s Award for Best Short Story, and won the Short Story Dagger from the Crime Writers Association for a piece that appeared in his first short story collection, Twisted, of which the New York Times said, “A mystery hit for those who like their intrigue short and sweet…The stories feature tight, bare-bones plotting and the sneaky tricks that Mr. Deaver’s title promises.”

With subjects ranging from a Westchester commuter to a brilliant Victorian England caper, the sneaky tricks are here in spades. More Twisted is Jeffery Deaver at the top of his crime-writing game.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Ingeniously devious.” 

    People

  • “Not many novelists have the juice to publish second volumes of their collected stories. Deaver not only carries the weight to do so but is light enough on his feet to make the enterprise highly enjoyable.” 

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Every one of these gems includes at least one act of narrative sleight of hand.”

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Trevor | 1/27/2014

    " Deaver is an evil genius whose short stories will induce much forehead-slapping and oh-my-god-ing among readers. This audiobook and its many skilled narrators made a drive from NY to Pittsburgh, to Columbus OH, and back to NY feel like a breeze. Last big drive I had, I took the first Twisted with me and had a blast. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Miss | 1/5/2014

    " Just when you thought you had the twist figured out, Deaver would twist it around and around and what you thought shouldn't have happen will eventually happen. Or not. Yep, Jeffrey Deaver will play with your mind in this hefty book of suspense stories. There's also a story including Rhyme and Sachs and although it was short, it was still worth the read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Doug Burris | 11/25/2010

    " Absolutely wonderful reading. Amazing short stories, always with a surprise that will floor you. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rebekkila | 7/30/2010

    " I stopped and started this twice. I think I went into this book expecting the plot twists that I find in a Deaver full length novel, I ended up disappointed. I didn't finish this, but another Deaver fan or a fan of short stories might like it better. "
