The Monterey Peninsula is rocked when a killer begins to leave roadside crosses beside local highways—not in memoriam, but as announcements of his intention to kill. And to kill in particularly horrific and efficient ways: using the personal details about the victims that they’ve carelessly posted in blogs and on social networking websites.

The case lands on the desk of Kathryn Dance, the California Bureau of Investigations foremost body language expert. She and Deputy Michael O’Neil follow the leads to Travis Brigham, a troubled teenager whose role in a fatal car accident has inspired vicious attacks against him on a popular blog, The Chilton Report. As the investigation progresses, Travis vanishes. Using techniques he learned as a brilliant participant in multiplayer online role-playing games, he easily eludes his pursuers and continues to track his victims. Among the obstacles Kathryn must hurdle are politicians from Sacramento, paranoid parents, and the blogger himself, James Chilton, whose belief in the importance of blogging and the new media threatens to derail the case and potentially Dance’s career. It is this threat that causes Dance to take desperate and risky measures...

In signature Jeffery Deaver style, Roadside Crosses is filled with dozens of plot twists, cliff-hangers, and heartrending personal subplots. It is also a searing look at the accountability of blogging and life in the online world. Roadside Crosses is the third in Deaver’s bestselling High-Tech Thriller Trilogy, along with The Blue Nowhere and The Broken Window. Download and start listening now!

    Times (London)

  • “Clever and twisted. . . . Don’t miss this one.”

    Library Journal

  • “Tightly constructed with a suspenseful story and plenty of plot twists…This is an excellent entry in what promises to be a series as popular as the author’s Lincoln Rhyme novels.”

    " I am really not sure if Kathryn Dance novels are my favorite. I feel she is a little boring. Roadside Crosses is not a page turner, in fact I was not sure if I wanted to finish the book..but I did. I much prefer Lincoln Rhyme. "

    " I love everything this man writes...so engrossing. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Debbie | 2/7/2014

    " I usually like Jeffery Deaver books, but this one irritated me. It was way too preachy--the dangers of gaming and the internet--and when the real criminal was revealed at the end and Kathryn Dance was giving her narritive of how she figured it out--a lot of the "suspects" I didn't even realize were suspects. It seemed like the author just decided at the end of the book whodunit. Also, the duel story line about her mom, a nurse, being accused of a mercy killing, was poorly developed and the ending was wrapped up like a Hallmark Hall of Fame movie--sappy and predictable. "
