Reviewed by Anne Boling for Readers' Favorite Fans of Jeffery Deaver will be thrilled with his latest offering “Triple Threat: 3 Original Short Stories.” Fans will be thrilled with the return of Kathryn Dance, a police officer with a special talent for reading body language, in 'Fast'. In this short story she is working on a case of domestic terrorism. A bomb is hidden and 200 lives are at stake. However, this suspect is unreadable so she must resort to trickery. The second story 'Game' revolves around a missing wealthy woman assumed dead. Her housekeeper hires a private detective to locate the body. This tale is based on an actual crime. In 'Paradise', John Pellam returns as usual trouble surrounds him. Pellam was driving down a mountainous road when his brakes failed. A woman decked him leaving his faced bruised. Despite her bruised knuckles Pellam can’t help but admire her beauty. The sheriff questioned Pellam concerning a recent murder. While the sheriff seemed to believe him there was naturally a bit of suspicion that overshadows any strangers at a time like that. Soon Pellam found himself searching for the murderer to protect his own life. All three stories are well written although I felt 'Paradise' and 'Fast' were of a much higher quality than 'Game'. My review is on the audio format of “Triple Threat.” January LaVoy and Kevin T. Collins are the narrators. They both did an excellent job of adding just the right inflections to convey the proper ambiance of the emotions and actions. This is a very short book making for a quick read.
A very nice collection of classic Deaver talent!!
I want you to go. I gtg for a while and I want you to have a little fun. Cya.
