'I can make good bad and bad badder, and most fun of all, really bad seem good.' Jeffery Deaver And that is exactly what he does in this superb collection. In 'Beautiful' former supermodel Kari's stalker has followed her through retirement to her new small town home. The police can do nothing. The only thing that will end the nightmare is the stalker's death or her own. In the Edgar-nominated 'Triangle' Pete finds a true crime book - and uses the lessons contained therein to kill Mo's lover. The award-winning 'Without Jonathan' introduces us to Marissa, about to go on the first date of her life since she married Jonathan, with a man she met through the personals. As she wonders whether she will ever truly fall in love again, the man she is about to meet is killing a housewife in another part of town...And in the brand-new 'The Christmas Present', we see a side of Lincoln Rhyme we've never met before.

Jeff Deaver was a lawyer before quitting work to become a full-time writer. He divides his time between Washington, DC and California.From AudioFile:
Jeffery Deaver is a master of the twist ending short story. Collected here are eight tales narrated by a team of three talented performers. In "Without Jonathan," Michele Pawk amplifies the suspense by pacing the story of a woman struggling to get over the death of her husband, but whose first date may be a killer. Boyd Gaines puts listeners on notice with his stylish air as he reads "For Services Rendered," about a woman seeking the help of a psychiatrist because her husband is trying to drive her crazy. Frederick Weller puts a redneck twang into his reading of "Eye to Eye," which follows a pair of small town cops who take pleasure in harassing the former high school nerd who has returned to town. With quiet confidence, Deaver reads his own introduction in which he shares his passion for short fiction and explains how he came to the form.
