Real good, hard to put down. Collection of short stories all with a "twist". It reminded me of the old black and white Hitchcock TV shows. Loved it.

Loved this book!! I'm not a huge fan of short stories books but this one was most excellent. You never knew which way the story was going to go. Kudos to the author; I will be ordering More Twisted besides all the Lincoln Rhyme novels I have been reading.

When I bought this, I didn't realize it was short stories, which I don't usually like. But since they are all done is great Deaver suspense fashion, I loved them all!

You THINK you can spot the twist, but Deaver tricks you every time. These are wonderful, tasty, short reads, perfect for someone who isn't ready to commit to a full novel. I read these at night. Interesting dreams.

Truly enjoyed every single short story in this book. All with their own unexpected "twist". My favorite was the Lincoln Rhyme bonus. Talented author.

If you love Jeffery Deaver - this book will fascinate and excite you to new heights. It includes a new Lincoln Rhyme short story as well as some of the best of Deaver's brilliant mind. The twists and turns so classic of Deaver's writing are cleverly woven into all of these short stories. Probably one of the fastest reads of Deaver's books ever!!!

Short stories in the Deaver tradition - i.e., all is not what it seems at first. Some good, some great, all with a TWIST.

Once again he deliver's a bunch of awesome stories! "Triangle" was the BEST out of so many great ones. I had to go back and read the begining again because I just couldn't believe the ending! So many of the stories in this author's short's collections are just so incredible that you have to go back and see where the turn happens. I would recommend this book and his other "more twisted" to anyone wanting just to have something lite and quick to read before going to bed or just for the short time you have to wait anywhere you will love the way it will make your mind work. :)
A++++++++++++++

Collection of short stories from the creator of the Lincoln Rhyme mysteries, with Deaver's trademark plot twists and switcheroos. Definite flavor of the old "Twilight Zone" and "Alfred Hitchcock" series episodes.

This collection of short stories (by the author of the Lincoln Rhyme series) all end with a twist but even though I was expecting the endings to be unexpected, they often still caught me off guard as they "twisted" in some other direction. Fairly short, easy to read stories offering enjoyable light entertainment.

I enjoyed this book. It has a short story about Lincoln Rhymne in it! He is the author of "The Bone Collector" which was made into a movie. I love all his books.

I usually don't care for short story books, but I truely enjoyed this one. Each story had it's own "twist" at the end...hence, the name of the book. I think there were only one or two stories where I figured out the ending. A good book for when you only have a short time to read (waiting for the kids at school, in line at the DMV, etc).
