Overview

The Devil's Teardrop by Jeffery Deaver

After an early morning machinegun attack by a madman called the Digger leaves dozens dead in the Washington, D.C., subway, the mayor’s office receives a message demanding twenty million dollars by midnight or more innocents will die. It is New Year’s Eve, and with the ransom note as the only evidence, Special Agent Margaret Lukas calls upon retired FBI agent and the nation’s premier document examiner Parker Kincaid to join the manhunt for the Digger—or for hundreds, the first moments of the new year will be their last on earth.

This is one you could never put down. This book does not stop till the last word.This is, by far, the BEST book that I have ever read.

After reading The Bone Collector I knew I had to read The Devil's Teardrop. From the robot-like killer to the devious plan put in motion by 'the man who tells him things', this book will tie you up with its intricate plot, characters that you really care about, and a narative drive that doesn't let up till the final page. Set aside some time for this one. It's well worth the roller coaster ride. This will go on your shelf as one of your favorites, but keep it handy--You may want to read it again.

From the first word to the last, Jeffery Deaver ignites the reader not to put the book down. Set in New York on New Year¿s Eve on December 31, 1999. The Devil¿s Teardrop is not just a novel. This story helps the reader understand and realize that a lot more goes on than just the big picture we see. The Devil¿s Teardrop has many conflicts .One including Man vs. Man. This conflict is between the special agent and ¿The Digger¿ who is the antagonist in this story. ¿The Digger¿ is a crazed man who threatens the entire city of New York that he will bomb a specific location every four hours until midnight unless he gets paid everything he wants. New York City never knew about the terrorist threats. So everyone kept partying. They are all partying because the theme of this story happens to be on New Year¿s Eve. This story is told from the mind of a special agent that got put on this case because he is the best at what he does. Mr. Jeffery Deaver is the best at creating twisters in his stories. For example at the end of the book when the terrorist was on his way to pick up the ransom he was holding the city¿s safety to and was in a car crash and instantly killed. This to me was not expected under any circumstances. He made the characters so realistic that at one time during this book, I found myself jumping to every sound I heard around me thinking it was a bomb going off. I would have to say that this book had one of the best endings I had ever read. The suspense level was off the charts in every chapter. I recommend everyone to read this book, and to go through this roller coaster book so you can realize and understand that there is always something other then the ¿big picture¿ that some people get caught up in. It wont be a disappointment. This page-turner reeled me in from the first paragraph.

excellent mystery, many twists and turns, fascinating tech details about document examination field; only minor down-side: author has an annoying writing habit of using WAY too many contractions, beyond normal writing and speech patterns, esp. double contractions

The Devil's Teardrop was a good story. It had decent character development, but was slow in parts. Overall, I enjoyed it.

Jeffery Deaver is a master at suspense and complicated plots. One must read the book very carefully to pick out all the clues. It should be read in one setting, if possible to keep the flow of the action in his writings. Suspensful to the end and it will leave you, at the end, wanting more.

THE DEVIL¿S TEARDROP AUTHOR: JEFFERY DEAVER PUBLISHER: Simon & Schuster REVIEWED BY: Barbara Rhoades BOOK REVIEW: Once again, Jeffery Deaver writes a great book with an unexpected twist for an ending. It is the Christmas Season and Parker Kincaid only wants to celebrate in peace with his son and daughter. But his ex-wife plans to contest custody of their children and the City of Washington, D.C. is going to need his forensic expertise. As the country¿s top forensic document examiner, Parker will be pulled from retirement against his will to assist in capturing the Digger before he kills again. Unfortunately, the Digger¿s accomplice is killed in an accident before he can pick up the ransom money he demanded to stop the Digger¿s killing. Working with Special Agent Margaret Lukas, with a secret of her own, Parker studies the documents available and begins the task of finding the killer. Deaver writes with great detail regarding the forensic tasks and has the intriguing twists in the plot for which he is known. It is a book that is hard to put down until you know the ending.

Although, not my favorite so far, still a very good read. Alittle far-fetched with the time frame but hey, I've never worked for DCPD or the FBI so I don't know how accurate the pace of action is. This time I actually tried to figure out what twist Deaver had in store for me this time. I came real close but he still had another trick up his sleeve, I couldn't predict. This is why it's so important to read a Deaver book from cover to cover, because he'll always sneak up on you at the end!

This book left me on the edge of my seat for the entire duration of time while reading it! It kept me in a state of mind trying to solve the 'puzzles' as the book went along. Kept getting better and better with every turn of the page! Its a MUST!
