Author Info
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 barnesandnoble.com 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.
Praise
"Jeffery Deaver, citing the unlimited subgenres of mystery writing, says the only thing these stories have in common is that they are short. They're also fabulously written....[T]hese stories are masterfully told and wonderfully creepy."
"As always, part of the pleasure derives from exposure to writers who have yet to gain the acclaim they deserve...." (starred review)
From the Publisher
Annotation Going strong for since the late 1990s, this series celebrates the best short fiction America produces every year in the realm of crime fiction and mysteries. The 2009 edition has been expertly edited by stalwarts of the genre Jeffrey Deaver and Otto Penzler, and contributors include big names like Joyce Carol Oates, Michael Connelly, and Alice Munro, as well as lesser-known writers such as Alafair Burke and James Lee.
Editors Note Best-selling novelist Jeffery Deaver edits this latest collection of the genre's finest from the past year. Featuring "gritty tales told with panache," this is a "must-read for anybody who cares about crime stories" (Booklist).
