Jeffery Deaver is the author of 16 novels, one of which, The Bone Collector, has been made into a feature film starring Denzel Washington and Angelina Jolie. His latest novel, The Blue Nowhere, is currently being adapted to film by Warner Bros.From Publishers Weekly:
In spite of its steamy theme, this original anthology of 20 tales by Mystery Writers of America members seldom sizzles. Only a few stories generate enough heat to warm a reader's heart, starting with Edgar-nominee Deaver's own nicely twisted "Ninety-eight Point Six." Another bright spot is Ronnie Klaskin's "Child Support," in which a woman has to cope with unreliable men. Toni L.P. Kelner's "Old Dog Days" features a retired police chief who manages to turn a hunt for a missing dog into a neat trick. In newcomer Ana Rainwater's arresting "Night Rose," a young woman with a difficult mother celebrates adulthood. Angela Zeman's "Green Heat" brings a Chicago hit man out of the cold and into the sweltering heat of West Virginia, where he gets a surprising education. Some big names prominently displayed on the dust jacket-Loren D. Estleman, John Lutz, Jeremiah Healy-should attract fans of those authors, though their contributions fall short of their best work.
