Personal Review:

Every story had a twist. I should have known that from the title, but each twist came and I said “Wow, I did not see that coming”. Even knowing a twist was coming, Deaver caused me to think ahead and try and figure out what it was going to be and it still surprised me each time.

A few stories in particular stood out:

1. Locard’s Principle – A story involving Lincoln Rhyme and the murder of a philanthropist which twists and turns and has you thinking every single character introduced is the murderer.

2. The Commuter – A revenge story of utmost proportion. The main character, a slimy fellow in his own right, is cheating on his wife, getting ready to pilfer his company’s intellectual property, and busy treating everyone he meets arrogantly. As the story unfolds you could pin his downfall on any one of the people he has treated poorly in his life – his wife, his lover, or his boss – but the real perpetrator came from out of the blue and really made me re-think the whole story.

3. The Poker Lesson – A story involving poker and cheating. Although the story has been told countless times through history, I think this particular twist was amazing. Everyone cheating, corrupt cops, dirty backroom games. The final few minutes of realization blew me away.

4. Ninety-eight Point Six – My favorite story of the collection. A traveling salesman, a case of mistaken identity and twist after twist keeping you guessing throughout.

I enjoyed the Narration immensely in this collection. Each story was read with passion and captured the characters perfectly.
