Deaver, author of the Lincoln Rhyme series and many standalone thrillers, needs just a few words to pull listeners into these wicked little tales that explore the evil that men (and women) do. While the stories' grim premises and convoluted plots are certainly "twisted", the characters are even more so. The true nature of most of Deaver's eclectic group is rarely revealed until the last few sentences, when greed, lust, or revenge has pushed them irrevocably over the edge; Deaver always manages to leave listeners gasping with one final plot twist.
The narration is outstanding across the board; the performances of these veterans (Tom Stechschulte et al.) build suspense without giving anything away. Highly recommended for public libraries despite a quibble with package design-the titles of the short stories (and corresponding narrators) appear neither on the CDs themselves nor on the outside.
