Spellbinding. A college sudent is murdered. Investigator Bill Corde is appalled by the murder, then finds out his own learning impaired daughter may be a friend of the murderer. Very thrilling.
Deaver is in a class by himself as far as mystery writers go. His characters are real people, warts and all, no sugar coating the personalities. He explores their weaknesses and their faults and make them very vulnerable to the horrors that they experience.
Great mystery, written 1993.
One of his earlier books, but riveting all the same.
This was a real page-turner all the way for me...
Another good book by Deaver. It keeps you guessing.
A young co-ed from a local college is found murdered and policeman Bill Corde is desperate to find her killer before the killer strikes again. Is it someone from the young woman's past, another student, a professor? Or could it be The Sunshine Man, who is leaving notes for Bill's young mentally-disabled daughter?
Very suspenseful with lots of twists and turns. I liked this one much better than Jeffrey Deaver's Lincoln Rhyme novels (and I liked those!). This one begs to be finished in one sitting.
this is my first experience with this author and am looking forward to more of his. very good suspence.
As ususal you cannot just read and figure out "who dunnit" with Jeffery Deaver's books. It has enough twists to suit every mystery fan.
Jeffery Deaver is one of my favorite authors and I've enjoyed every one of his books that I've read. He is a master os suspense.
An intriguing mystery, not easily figured out. Well developed, realistic characters
From the Edgar Award-winning author of The Empty Chair and The Coffin Dancer comes a spellbinding novel that pits a dedicated cop against a brilliantly savage killer in a fight for his life-and everything he cares for.
Bill Corde looked down at the face of the murdered girl and saw there beauty and youth and the horror of sudden death. He could not know, as he stood there at the trampled, muddy scene beside the college girl's corpse, that his own life was about to slip into terror. He could not know that everything he held precious was about to shatter before his eyes. He could not know that his career - and his family -were about to enter a new dimension of danger.
For Bill Corde, the killer is eveything he fears most. For Sarah, Bill's wild, learning-impared daughter, trapped in a world of frustration and ridicule, he may be just the person she's been waiting for. Someone who signs his notes "The Sunshine Man." Someone she can run away with, even a perfect stranger....
