Jeffery Deaver’s New York Times bestseller, The Bodies Left Behind, is now available from Encore and will coincide with the hardcover and audio of Deaver’s latest thriller, Edge.

A call to the police from a vacation house on the isolated Lake Mondac is cut short. Was it a phone glitch or something worse? Off-duty police deputy Brynn McKenzie leaves her family at the dinner table to investigate—and walks right into a nightmare when she stumbles upon the scene of an atrocious, gruesome murder. Brynn realizes that the perpetrator hasn’t left the crime scene yet, but it’s already too late to call for backup—dense woods surround the house, and there is nowhere for her to run but into the hostile Wisconsin wilderness. Will Brynn be his next victim?

Deaver’s trademark plot twists and ticking bomb suspense tactics leaves listeners wanting more, and the real-time chronology of The Bodies Left Behind makes it an intense, fast-paced, and visceral experience that will shock listeners until the very last moment.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Abigail Pankau | 2/15/2014

    " Very good thriller up to the last 100 pages, but quite an exciting page-turner until then. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Karen | 2/10/2014

    " I find Deaver an erratic author. His books range from almost boring to quite good. This is one of his more enjoyable ones. The plot twists make sense and work well. The heroine is capable and quite likeable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Anne Girouard | 1/31/2014

    " Really twisty thriller. It's a cat and mouse hunt through a dangerous forest and just when you think everything's OK Deaver throws in not one twist, but several. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Erin | 1/27/2014
