Jeffery Deaver

(1950 - )

Jeffery Deaver (born May 6, 1950) is an American mystery/crime writer. He originally started working as a journalist, but trained as a lawyer and later practiced law. Deaver was born in Glen Ellyn, Illinois. Many of his books tend to promote lateral thinking, particularly his short story collection Twisted. One of his books, The Blue Nowhere, features criminal hackers (one using social engineering to commit murder), as well as a law enforcement computer crime unit. His most popular series features his regular character Lincoln Rhyme, a quadriplegic detective, and Amelia Sachs. According to a 2006 interview on The Early Show, Deaver stated that he would rotate between his new series and Lincoln Rhyme each year. Virtually all of his works feature a trick ending, or sometimes multiple trick endings.

Deaver edited The Best American Mystery Stories 2009. Three of Deaver's novels have been produced into films: The Bone Collector (1999) A Maiden's Grave as the TV film Dead Silence (1997) The Devil's Teardrop (2010), also a TV film

Deaver also created the characters and - in a collaboration with 14 other noted writers - wrote the 17-part serial thriller The Chopin Manuscript narrated by Alfred Molina that was broadcast on Audible.com from September 25 to November 13, 2007.

Deaver will write the next James Bond novel. The novel, Carte Blanche, is set in the present era and will be published on 28 May 2011. He will be the second American author to write Bond novels, after Raymond Benson.
