||Bestselling author Jeffrey Deaver loads up another page-turning techno-thriller with ROADSIDE CROSSES. The plot picks up shortly after THE SLEEPING DOLL and features California Bureau investigator Kathryn Dance, who's still dealing with some of the fallout from her previous case. Now Kathryn and her crew have to negotiate the social mores of high schoolers and the nuances of the internet in order to put a stop to a killer who's forecasting his victims with roadside crosses. Travis Brigham was driving when a car accident occurred, killing the other two teenage passengers. Now kids from his school, many of whom would never say anything face-to-face, are skewering him on a blog, and Travis--who's also a big-time online role-playing gamer, is getting even. Deaver keeps the action coming fast (the book takes place across four breathless days), while managing not to fall into the trap of broadly villainizing technology, its proponents, or its opponents.
