Books: The Latest Jeffrey Deaver

Best-selling author Jeffery Deaver (The Bone Collector and others) has come out with the latest thriller in his Kathryn Dance series, starring the talented California Bureau of Investigation agent who is expert at kinesics—the ability to interpret body language. In this installment, Dance flaunts her skills to help track down a stalker obsessed with a young Taylor-Swiftesque singer. But the suspect is likely deranged, making his physical tics more difficult to read as true.

Deaver throws in plenty of his trademark twists and turns, building to a dramatic conclusion. I’ve got to confess, though, in the back of my mind I kept thinking how great it would be to have lie-reading skills while raising my five teenagers.
