This is the first book in the Colter Shaw series. I found it to be interesting but a little disjointed because of the back and forth in time scenes. I will read the next book to fully embrace the character.

Although I've been aware of Jeffery Deaver's work for decades, I've never gotten around to reading one of his novels so, when Amazon offered his latest (251-page) novella 'The Rule Of Threes' for free, I decided to give it a try.

'The Rule Of Threes' was entertaining in a magic-trick kind of way. My first impression was that it was a conventional but well-done clever cop versus cunning serial killer story with both the cop and the killer being distinctive enough to keep the story fresh. The storytelling valued pace over detail but the dialogue worked well, the action scenes were exciting, the peaceful small-town setting amplified the impact of the violence and the level of tension kept rising.

Towards the middle, I started to realise that this wasn't the conventional story I thought it was going to be. The main investigator wasn't the out-of-towner-who-fearlessly-follows-the-evidence type I'd thought she was. The more I learned about her, the more dangerous and unpredictable she seemed to be. The Sherrif, who'd initially seemed like a central casting version of a grumpy disillusioned middle-aged wannabe-cowboy bully Sherif turned out to the someone quite different. Then something started to feel off about the obsessed-with-things-that-come-in-threes killer and I wondered how Jeffery Deaver was going to pull everything together in such a short time.

Then came the big twist. A twist so big that it almost felt like a cheat. I found myself going "How was I supposed to see that coming?" Then I accepted that this wasn't a book where I was being invited to solve the mystery before the detective did, this was a rollercoaster ride thriller that I had to surrender control to and enjoy the ride. The momentum of the story pushed me forward and dropped me through twist after twist to an ending that I thought was very satisfactory.

'The Rule Of Threes' was entertaining and has left me with an appetite for some more Jeffery Deaver. I think I'll try his most recent books first.

Against expectations - I only picked this up because I couldn't find anything else to read - I was hooked. The book features a quadraplegic detective, Rhyme, his able bodied - and able - assisant Amelia Sachs, a top-of-the-range killer who has an inner voice in the form of an army officer, and an exciting, time-limited plot: the action takes place within 45 hours. The villain is almost unbelievably talented, Rhyme almost unbelievable in his ability to second-guess the villain's moves. But I did suspend disbelief, and was thoroughly sucked in to the plot, rooting for all the characters, even from time to time, the villain. I have a reason for not using his name. Read it and you'll find out why.… (lisätietoja)

Absolute quality a Master of this genre

Absolute quality from a Master of this genre.
Totally gripping from first to last page clever descriptive intelligent with more than enough twists and surprises for this reader to cope with. Classed as a novella but 260 pages so more a short book. Excellent characters throughout and I was particularly pleased to see the return of our heroine lead Detective Constant Marlow. She featured in the Authors quality linked series of four novellas and I suggested she must have her own series, and I would like to think the Author took note, but I suspect not. The possible great news is the ending of this book suggests a follow up. I certainly hope so.
Completely and utterly recommended.
