Number One best seller Jeffery Deaver returns with a new Kathryn Dance: a thrilling tale of a vigilante seeking revenge - in the real and cyber worlds.

A highway patrol trooper notices something strange on the side of the road: a homemade cross, fashioned as a memorial. Except the date being 'remembered' is the following day - the day the police find a kidnapped teenage girl in the trunk of a car, left for dead.

Special Agent Kathryn Dance, the kinesics expert with the California Bureau of Investigation, is on the case. The teenage victim points her to an online community where accusations fly and the criticism turns from impartial to personal - and vicious. It looks as though the bullying went too far, and one teen has finally snapped.

Then further crosses appear. Now Dance must race against the clock to find the attacker before he can carry out his deadly plans for revenge....in the cyber world and the real. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " Third techno-thriller by Deaver--Blue Nowhere and Broken Window. a Kathryn Dance novel. Lots of tech stuff that can be read or skipped. I really liked the first two in this series butthis one stretched the imagination a bit. However, the final point, that the Internet should be used with caution and that for some reality becomes their online lives, is a good one that some may need to hear. This might be a good book to recommend to YAs. "

    " After reading another book by this author I was excited to read this one. Unfortunately it was predictable and disappointing. One that I forced myself to finish and was glad to be done. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michael Allison | 2/11/2014

    " Interesting about the "dark side of the synth world" aka. Social Media and blogging. I didn't know it was the last in a trilogy, so the two other sub plots were of little interest. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deborah Mitton | 2/7/2014

    " In enjoy Jeffery Deaver's book. This one however I didn't enjoy reading. I was most likely me and not his writing. No worries I have 5 more of his books to read and I'm sure that I will enjoy them :o) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Debebete Hotmailcom | 2/4/2014

    " I loved this book--the best suspense I've read this year. The gaming world is ailen to me, so whether or not the research on that topic was correct or not isn't an issue with me. I enjoyed the implied relationship between Katheryn Dance (central character of the series) and Michael O'Neil, it reminds me of Bones and Booth. The suspense of "who-done-it" was the best. Normally I have the "perp" picked out but this time I was guessing to the end. Great ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sonia Kilvington | 1/31/2014

    " I ejoyed it, but not as much as I thought I would. It tried to be a new type of interactive thriller, were you could check out the clues on the internet. As I read it on board a ship without the internet, it didnt work for me, although the story was fine but a little slow in the middle section. The premis of a killer leaving rosadside wreaths before each murder was different although he used the 'left them for dead' trick, too many times and it lost its suprise value. Always a good writer not his best book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennie Briggs | 1/14/2014

    " I really liked this second installment from Jeffery Deaver, with his character Kathryn Dance. There is always a twist in everyone off his books and this one does not disappoint. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Raenette Palmer | 1/5/2014

    " I usually enjoy Deaver's books more than this one. It was too slow and plodding. Not enough action to carry me along like I wanted. On the other hand, I did learn a lot about the synth world. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 11/17/2013

    " Typical of its genre, not particularly remarkable. Not my favorite kind of book but it was ok. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Margali | 11/17/2013

    " An average, likeable Deaver novel -- I always prefer his Lincoln Rhyme novels. He's getting in a bad, Dan Brown-ish habit of ending every chapter with a cliffhanger. My husband and I refer to it as the "Dum, dum, DUUUMMMM!" moment, and it is quite tiresome when overused. "

    " It's a Jefferey Deaver book, it's gonna be good .. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim Schiavone | 7/22/2013

    " Some of his books are hit or miss with me. I enjoyed this one though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Betty R | 5/1/2013

    " Different from his usual, however, I really enjoyed this book "

    " Another good book by Jeffery Deaver. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelly | 12/27/2012

    " Love this book. Every time I thought I figured out who the suspect was it changed. Great suspense and facts. Can't wait to read his book Broken Window next! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ronald E. | 10/4/2012

    " Kathryn Dance solves a stunning case by using her ability to recognize body symbols that lead her to the murderer. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Blackburnbecks | 4/2/2012

    " quite enjoyed this book. like the Kathryn Dance character and her love life subplot is always a good read for us ladies! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cheryl | 12/15/2011

    " A great read and I love learning about kinesics-the study of body language. The series is very diffrent from others I've read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Trisha Jones | 10/8/2011

    " Typical Deaver twists and turns, interesting look at social networking sites and blogging concering how much information you should put out there. It took me from Santa Fe to Henryetta-10 hours of enjoyable reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 5/14/2011

    " Not a bad plot and, even though it's part of a series, you don't feel too lost when things from the past are referenced. "

    " I really like Jeffery Deaver's books. I like the characters and the mystery/suspense is quite well done. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Aricelys | 3/25/2011

    " i think i dragged on a bit- and by the time the twist came about it was wrapped tooo quickly "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Paul | 3/17/2011

    " Complete and utter rubbish. I couldn't finish it because it was so bad. "

    " I am a big Jeffery Deaver fan. I like his Kathryn Dance character. He also manages to surprise me with a twist or two. "

    " Pretty ok, good read if a little predictable. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jill | 2/25/2011

    " blech. too much on the explanation of the internets as if he were writing a 'dummies' guide. use of the word "perp" seemed so fake, as did most of the dialogue. just absolutely not engaging at all. (and i'd heard from several different people that deaver is a fantastic writer) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Veronika | 2/25/2011

    " it took a while for this book to pick the usual breath-taking deaver pace and i also agree that there were a few blog entries too many... but in the end you will not be left disappointed as the book envelops you fully on the last 200-100 pages. got to love deaver! "

    " good and quite thought provoking really, regarding the growing culture of existance online away from the 'real' world "
