Despite the fact that Jeffrey Deaver said that the reader will never see the surprise ending coming, I was disappointed with this volume. AlPerhaps my expectations were high after reading the first installment, I found every story ending predictable. Still a fun and quick read though

This is a great book of short stories by Jeffery Deaver. Mr. Deaver is one of the best, if not the best mystery writer in the business. I have read every book he has written. You can't really solve the crimes, but you can guess where the author is going. I guessed every story except 'Tunnel Girl'. He blew me away with that one. I guessed the conspiracy scenario. I recommend any book that Mr. Deaver has written.

Having never read any of Jeffery Deaver's work, I picked up his short story collection Twisted and was pleasantly surprised. The premise was simple: twisted characters in twisted situations topped off by plot twists and more plot twists. The stories were short and sweet, and the endings typically kept me guessing. Don't get me wrong -- no one is going to mistake Twisted for literature, but it was a fun read anyway. I prepared myself for a similar experience with the sequel, only to be let down. The stories were less surprising and the characters were less devious. Unlikely happenings derailed many of the stories. The book was less enjoyable to put it bluntly -- not bad but still much less fun than the original. I would guess that Deaver just gathered up whatever stories didn't fit in the first volume and compiled it into this one, the not-ready-for-prime-time stories if you will. Not a bad read and not particularly lengthy or difficult, More Twisted lacks the cleverness and delicious fun of the original.

As with its short story predecessor (see TWISTED), this is a terrific crime thriller anthology. There are thirteen reprints with three from the late 19990s and the remaining from this decade. There are also three new tales (Afraid, Locard¿s Principle, and The Voyeur) with Locard¿s Principle being a longer short story starring Lincoln Rhyme. Each of the tales are fun to read as most of them share a common twist that leads to questioning just who a character truly is are they a thief, a killer, a psychopath or just an innocent person in the wrong place at the wrong time. Crime thriller fans will appreciate this entertaining exhilarating compilation in which readers will keep changing their mind over who is guilty in tales faster than 'a sniper's bullet¿.-------------- Harriet Klausner
