Reviews

"In XO, Deaver challenges the reader, entertains the reader, and satisfies the reader. If every successful book is a notch on his computer he has just added one more mark."--HuffingtonPost.com

Thriller Award-winner Deaver's excellent third novel featuring Kathryn Dance (after 2009's Roadside Crosses) takes the California Bureau of Investigation agent on a vacation trip to Fresno, where she plans to collect music for her American Tunes Web site and visit her country music star friend, Kayleigh Towne, who's preparing a hometown concert. Meanwhile, persistent stalker Edwin Sharp pursues Towne in a manner that precludes legal action and frustrates local detectives. Sharp becomes the prime suspect in the murder of one of Towne's road crew, but he consistently eludes or outsmarts the law team's attempts to prove his involvement. Plenty of surprises and red herrings complement developments in Dance's problematic relations with boyfriend Jon Boling and Det. Michael O'Neil of Monterey County. Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs, the leads of Deaver's other series, make cameo appearances in a novel sure to please fans of both series. Agent: Deborah Schneider, Gelfman Schneider Literary Agents.

In Deaver's new Kathryn Dance thriller (after Roadside Crosses), Kayleigh Towne is a blond bombshell of a country pop singer who attracts fans, including a stalker who believes her hit song "Your Shadow" was written just for him. After a series of letters announcing "I'm coming for you" and unexplained accidents, Special Agent Kathryn Dance is brought into the case. Using her skills of interpreting body language, she leads a complex and convoluted investigation and brings in the creative and outspoken criminalist Lincoln Rhyme to assist her. VERDICT As a former folksinger, Deaver brings his extensive musical knowledge in writing Kayleigh's songs, which readers can download from his website. But the roller-coaster ride provided by numerous twisty plotlines-a typical Deaver technique-becomes tedious and confusing, slowing down the action and clouding the eventual climax. Deaver further hampers the flow with extensive discussion of nonessential side topics. A rather disappointing effort that his many die-hard fans will want none-theless.-Jerry Miller, Cambridge, MA (c) Copyright 2012. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
