Everyone that loves books about mysteries, suspense, drama and dynamic charactors must read Jeffery Deavers' books!

I love the Kathryn Dance series. Wait on pins and needles for the next one!

Though a big Jeffery Deaver fan, this book was very disappointin

Though a big Jeffery Deaver fan, this book was very disappointing. It might have been a better short story. It definitely needed some editing. Sadly, I simply cannot recommend it.

    Another Hit by Deaver

    XO is classic Jeffery Deaver. Deaver keeps the pace moving constantly and true to his style, the ending has some great surprises.

    This was also an insightful glance into the music industry. Deaver has done his homework. I actually have a friend who is a grammy nominated pop star, Heather Schmid, who has had experiences similar to Kayleigh Towne’s in terms of her experience as a female pop star and with fanatical fans (though nowhere near as extreme) so when I say Deaver is accurate, I'm speaking from personal knowledge. Kathryn Dance is (of course) awesome in her role and anyone who is a fan of hers (or Lincoln Rhyme) will love this book. The great thing about Deaver's series is that each book advances the timeline in his world and it's been fun watching his characters evolve. I'm just sad he only writes one book per year!

    Deaver indulges himself

    Having read all of Deaver's books I think he's becoming formulaic. The early Lincoln Rhymes stuff was very good, but in this one the author indulges in topics he's researched intently (in this book it's country music, musical instruments and songwriting mainly). The stalking issue is forced since no serious law inforcement officer would let things proceed as they do in the book. There is no major character development-this plot is convoluted and he provides about 20 or more songs he's written (really I'm not into lyrics and the main character's bursts of ideas for lyrics)and his kinesics information is pretty ordinary. Beach reading-not substantial enough for me.

    Chilling stalker

    Deaver obviously does his research, but in this one his facts intrude on the storyline

    Okay - not great

    A good read, but not one of this amazing author's best efforts, despite the introduction of Rhyme and Sachs into the story.
