About the book
Kayleigh Towne is a beautiful and successful singer-songwriter, and Edwin Sharp is her biggest fan. When she replies to one of his fan letters with 'XO', Edwin is convinced she loves him, and that her latest hit song 'Your Shadow' was written for him. Nothing Kayleigh or her lawyers can say persuades him otherwise. Then the singer gets an anonymous phone call; it's the first verse of 'Your Shadow' playing. Soon after, one of the crew is horribly murdered. Kayleigh's friend Kathryn Dance, a special agent with the California Bureau of Investigation, knows that stalking crimes are not one-off occurrences, and, sure enough, more verses of the song are played as warnings of death to follow. With a little help from forensic criminalist Lincolyn Rhyme, Dance must use her kinesic and investigative skills in an attempt to find the killer before more people die. Deaver has written the actual song, 'Your Shadow'. Readers will be able to download it from www.jefferydeaver.com.

Read Review   Want to write a review?
The twists and turns of Deaver's plot leaves lesser authors eating his dust.'
The grand master of the thriller genre has done it again with a ripping new Kathryn Dance novel.'
Deaver at his forensic best.'
For suspense, leave it to Deaver.'
Sometimes the purest escapism can only be found in a knuckle-bleaching thriller that messes with your blood pressure. This is a job for Jeffery Deaver, on top form with another case for special agent Kathryn Dance . . . a classically twisty slice of Deaver suspense'
Deaver writes crime fiction - thrillers you want to race through - and he's bloody good . . . If he was real, 007 would be a Deaver fan'
The danger for thriller writers is that they become so comfortable with their detectives, Dance, Rhymes, Sachs and Co, that new readers feel excluded. Deaver always avoids this, though, elegantly reprising their back stories for newcomers without boring the faithful.' *****
Jeffery Deaver is grand master of the ticking-clock thriller.'
The pace is terrific, the suspense inexorable, and there is an excellent climax . . . If you want thrills, Deaver is your man.'
The most creative, skilled and intriguing thriller writer in the world . . . [Deaver] has produced a stunning series of bestsellers with unique characterisation, intelligent characters, beguiling plots and double-barrelled and sometimes triple-barrelled solutions.'
Written with Deaver's usual keen eye for dialogue and character and featuring his customary right-angle plot twists, the novel will be a sure-fire hit . . . This may be the most compelling of the Dance books.'
Excellent . . . plenty of surprises and red herrings'
With a game of cat and mouse that is full of twists and turns, expect family and friends to queue up to borrow this one'
Devious, diabolical and devilish . . . It's Dance's toughest case, and one of Deaver's best books.'
