Now in a tall Premium Edition, this latest addition to the Kathryn Dance series is a searing tale about a vigilante seeking revenge in the online world--with horrifying results in real life. A thrill ride between covers.--"Los Angeles Times."
From the Publisher:
When a troubled teenager is pushed over the edge by cyber-bullies, he plots a violent revenge for which he plants roadside crosses throughout the Monterey peninsula, a situation for which body-language expert Kathryn Dance and Monterey County Sheriff's Senior Deputy Michael O'Neil race against the clock to stop the youth from acting on his rage. Reprint. A best-selling book.
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.
Author Bio
Jeffery Deaver
Jeffery Wilds Deaver was born and raised in Chicago. He attended the University of Missouri and received a law degree from Fordham University. A self-described "terrible attorney," Deaver quit the law in 1990 to pursue a full-time writing career based on his fascination with and love of suspense. "When I teach courses in writing," Deaver said in a interview, "I always tell my students to write what you enjoy reading and I have always been a big fan of the sort of book I write--the plot-driven commercial thriller." Deaver's modus operandi has proven lucrative since his first book was published in the early 1990s. Several of his books have achieved best-seller status and two--THE BONE COLLECTOR (1997) and A MAIDEN'S GRAVE (1995)--have been adapted for film. Deaver's sister, Julie Reece Deaver, is an author of young adult books.


"Deaver's expert and devious plotting makes it a challenge to stay only a couple of steps behind him." 04/13/2009

"[Deaver] has one of those puzzle-loving minds you just can't trust." - Marilyn Stasio 06/07/2009
