Waiting on Wednesday- Trouble in Mind by Jeffery Deaver

 
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly book meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. This day allows us to share news on upcoming releases that have us on the edge of our seats in anticipation.

I am really excited about 'Trouble in Mind' for many different reasons, one of which might be considered a little odd. This book would mean that in less than a year Jeffery Deaver has had three books out. I got Kill Room in June, The October List which was released yesterday and now this one which is coming out March 4, 2014. Here is the Goodreads Description: 
The "grand master of the plot twist" (Booklist) is back with his third story collection. The stories include: "A Textbook Case," a Lincoln Rhyme story:
When a young woman is found brutally murdered in a parking garage, with a veritable mountain of potential evidence to sift through, it may be the most challenging case former NYPD detective Lincoln Rhyme has ever taken on. "Fast," a Kathryn Dance story:
Kathryn Dance is in a race against the clock to track down the members of a domestic terrorist cell-and the lives of 200 people hang in the balance. "Game":
After Sarah Lieberman's new tenants murder her in an attempt to steal her money, Sarah's housekeeper Carmel is determined to find Sarah's body so she can lay her soul to rest. But Carmel may discover that the truth is uncomfortably close to home ... "Paradice," a John Pellam story:
When a brake failure leaves him temporarily stranded in a Colorado mountain town, John Pellam finds himself suddenly accused of murder. Among others.
I have already read the short stories mentioned above, because they are currently kindle singles. They were really great. I can't wait to read the others in this collection. Deaver is a master of twists and turns. I have tried for years to figure out how his books were going to end, and every time I'm shocked.

His short stories are just as good as the full length novels. Writing short stories is a difficult task in my opinion. You have very little time to set up characters and get to the point. Deaver can not only create strong memorable characters, but he can still shock readers with his classic twists. Even though I have read a few of these stories already, I can't wait to see what he has in store for this collection.
