As is typical Deaver has written yet another fabulous book, Tons of surprises and riveting writing will keep you glued to the page. If you like Connelly(The Poet) and Blood Work, you will love this book. Highly recommend.

Author Jeffrey Deaver does it again! This is an immensely entertaining, page turning read for all thriller enthusiasts. The story line centers around an unknown killer unleashed upon Washington, D.C.. Known as the "Digger", this maniacal killer proceeds into D.C.'s Metro Station at 9:00 AM on New Year's Eve 1999 and begins a shooting spree that leaves many dead. The Digger has been instructed by an unknown criminal mastermind accomplice to kill hordes of people at clocked intervals on the eve of the millennium, unless a twenty million dollar demand for ransom is met. The ransom note is the only communication from this criminal genius who alone can control the actions of the killer. D.C.'s mayor agrees to pay the staggering ransom, but on the way to the drop, the accomplice appears to have been killed in a freak traffic accident. Who can now stop the "Digger" from his appointed rounds?

Enter Parker Kincaid, document examiner extraordinaire and former FBI agent. Kincaid has been called back as a consultant to assist the FBI who need to stop the killer before he kills again. Kincaid is a wonderful, fully fleshed character. A single parent with his own share of troubles, he is as interesting as is Lincoln Rhyme, another of Deaver's characters around whom several of his books have revolved. Interestingly enough, Rhyme has a cameo appearance in this book which should give Deaver's fans an added kick while reading this book. Like Rhyme, Kincaid is a master of deductive reasoning and is a thinking person's detective. It is interesting how his analysis of the ransom note provides clues for the FBI to follow up in their quest to stop the killer before it is too late.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
A dynamic, most explosive book, made for the modern era, craft for the modern mind, tells of this blood thirsty- mad killer, emotionless with no feeling and even a sense of self. Unleashed, and Loosed in the street of Washington. His goal is to kill in a scheduled blood bath that is to take place 4 times within a single day.
Time is of the essence, the FBI and the local police have their hands full, in this New Years eve. Already more than a dozen people have been killed early this morning in the metro station shooting. And more is doomed to be: @ four, eight, and twelve if a demand for $ 20 million is not met before the prescribed hours. "The end is night." Cry the note, which was the only link to the perp, "The Digger is loose and there is no way to stop him." The stand off is on between good and evil, and evil seems to be prevailing, even in death.
The perpetrator, entitled the UNSUB (unidentified subject), has been killed on his way to the drop by a truck, a freak accident that leaves the FBI with only a corpse that might as well has a John Doe stamped to his forehead. The body is untraceable, no profile, no connection or identification, and no record. Clean as pure water, nothing to go by, and the worse is yet to come, the digger now can't be stopped, he will continue to kill passed 4:00, 8:00 till midnight... may be, that is why the end is night!!??
A book that will render the mystery lovers capricious, and keep the action ones on the edge of each page. It is more than a page turner, it is also a mind juggler. (3 ½ Stars)

Format: Mass Market Paperback
THE DEVIL'S TEARDROP is a suspense/thriller that I would recommend to anyone who enjoys the ups and downs of a roller coaster ride. Deaver lets your imagination work as you try to figure out his villain. You think you know who the mastermind is, but do you really? You will want to know what happens next as each chapter leaves you wanting more. The Digger who is he really?
The Digger looks like you, the Digger looks like me. He walks down the wintry streets the way anybody would, shoulders drawn together against the damp December air....
Maybe he's fat, maybe he's thin. Looking like you, looking like me. Nobody ever notices the Digger and that's one of the reasons he's so very good at what he does....

The proceeding excerpt from chapter 1 introduces us to the Digger, who is our villain. The villain is common looking and never sticks out in a crowd. He is about to terrorize the citizens of Washington D.C. The Digger is programmed to attack every four hours unless twenty million dollars is delivered to his accomplice. The plot thickens when suddenly his partner in crime is killed in a freak accident. The problem lies with the sudden death of his friend, see he is the only one who can contact the Digger and shut him down and the only evidence is the ransom note. That brings us to the best FBI forensic guy for the job, Parker Kincaid.
Former document examiner Parker Kincaid, top specialist in his field, is reluctant to help. He is a divorced from his wife and has custody of his two small children. He was working another case when a killer had threatened his family. They caught the suspect but now his boy has nightmares and Parker doesn't know what to do. This is why he no longer wished to work for the FBI.
