This was a very good book. The begining was a little slow, but when it picked up I couldn't put it down. Jeffery has you mistrusting all of the characters. Jeffery has done it again!

This is one of Deaver's earlier works. I'll echo most of the other reviewers and say that this isn't his best. It is, however, still a very strong story. Deaver's weakest is still as good or better than most writer's best.
This is a strong plot, but there are fewer twists than Deaver has become known for. The characters are also very good. He makes you cheer for Corde and wonder how his coworkers can be so stupid.
Again, it's not his best, but you still won't be disappointed by it.

I have read all of Jeffrey Deaver's books, and have enjoyed each and every one of them. While, this book was engrossing, I did not feel that it was up to par with some of his others, like "Bone Collector", "Coffin Dancer", "Devil's Teardrop", or my all-time favorite - "A Maiden's Grave" - all of which I would rate as 5+-star books. I'm looking forward to reading another new book by him.

While the plot was intriguing and had some nice twists, Mr. Deaver was just a bit too fond of his surprise segues from one section to another. It was as if he was testing how clever he could be in duping the reader and leading them down the wrong path before they realized they had switched to a new character. Doing this every now and then is fine, but it happened nearly every other page! Yes, we see how clever you are. Get over it. His later stuff is definitely better.

I've read all of Deaver's books and this is probably the weakest. That, however, is like saying that a painting is one of Da Vinci's weakest -- the guy is so good that even his earlier, poorer stuff is still worth reading. I found this book fun and gripping, but it has the same flaws (hard to empathise with the characters enough to really get into the story) as his other earlier work.
This is quite fast-paced (not as fast as his later work) and quite chilling in parts. He really knows how to get inside peoples' heads, particularly loonies, and describe their thought processes scarily well. Good for a rainy day or when you're sick at home, once you've read all of his others.

After reading and enjoying so many of Jeffery Deaver's books, "The Lesson of Her Death" was a total disappointment. You don't get into the characters, don't feel how they feel. The ending was a let down. Usually, it takes me three days to a week to finish a book...this one took me over three weeks to finish ! I would not recommend spending your dollar on the book at all.

The Lesson of Her Death, although interesting enough to read in a speedy manner, was definitely not one of Deaver's best. I found a lot of stereotypical characters and scenarios and it didn't grab my attention as much as his other novels. I think Deaver hit something really good with the Lincoln Rhyme series, because Bone Collector and Coffin Dancer were outstanding, but this tale of a disfunctional police officer/family and the 'cult'/'moon' killer was much more weakly portrayed. I think I will stick with my buddy Det. Rhyme.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Bill Corde is a former big city cop turned small town detective who is assigned to investigate a murder of a local college girl. Although signs point to a cult killing, Corde knows better and he closes in on the real killer. He discovers the victim has left him with a number of suspects and as he gets closer to the killer, the killer gets closer to him. In typical Deaver fashion, there are twists and turns with every new chapter. You are kept guessing until the very end as to the identity of the murderer. The book is a smooth read and it held my interest throughout. Deaver conveys real suspense and dread by bringing the Hero's children into the sights of the villain. Deaver and suspense fans will find this as a book worth reading.
