A Visit with Jeffery Deaver
Last Friday, Mitchell, Evan and I had the priviledge of spending a few moments with Jeffery Deaver
. Jeff is on tour, promoting his latest Lincoln Rhyme suspense thriller, The Burning Wire
Jeff shared his excitement over being selected to pen the next James Bond novel. "I am not writing this book as if I were Ian Fleming. No one can really do that. I am taking the type of story that I generally tell -- a very fast-paced thriller, lots of twists and turns and surprises." The book is set to come out late May 2011.
Virginia and I were at Thrillerfest 2009 when Deaver won Best Thriller of The Year Honors for his novel The Bodies Left Behind
. Since that time we have kept in touch, but haven't seen since he visited our warehouse to sign last year's Roadside Crosses
On another note, Jeff is trying something completely new, a novel written in the first person. Edge will be released in early November, and promises the same high octane suspense we have come to expect from his books. We'll be offering it soon.
