Jeffery Deaver (as I understand it) is a well know author and has many successful novels. Roadside Crosses, on one level is a good crime thriller. A series of attempted murders are linked to crosses which are left on the roadside. Unlike memorial crosses which indicate an anniversary of a road death, these roadside crosses have the current date on them - indicating that a killing will happen.

The agent in-charge of the investigation, Kathryn Dance, stumbles into the world of blogging and internet gaming. This forms a fascinating and very interesting sub-plot.

The prime suspect soon becomes a teenager who had been viciously attacked on a blog thread. Travis had been involved in a fatal car accident. His character is systematically attacked on the blog by other students from Travis' school. It is these students who are now being attacked. The blog is hosted by a guy who takes pleasure in outing `injustice' `hypocrisy' and revealing `truth' about people.

Deaver examines a ton of issues in this novel, including the ethical implications of blogging and how people regard what is posted on a blog as `truth' without any thought that it might not be true; the intense speed at which rumors spread through blogging and the damage such rumors can cause.

Add the good writing and the wonderful twists, especially towards the end, then you have the ingredients of a great read.

Roadside Crosses has renewed my faith in Jeffrey Deaver's new series of books. I enjoyed the addition of her character in the Lincoln Rhyme series' -and arguably one of Deaver's best books- Cold Moon and was happy when she received her own story. Unfortunately, I found myself rushing through Sleeping Doll trying to get to the interesting parts, which were few and far between.

However, Roadside Crosses has renewed my interest in the kinesics expert. The various plot lines that are intertwined within kept me thoroughly involved in the world. My only gripe, which is shared by many, is the constant lesson in the "synth world" (world wide web). Jeffery Deaver often includes something of a lesson on some topic or another in his stories and they are usually interesting. Unfortunately, this time he's chosen a topic that is so mainstream that it feels redundant, which can take you out of the story for a bit. Still might be nice for the older generation who haven't gone tech.

Other than that I highly recommend this to those that enjoy the Lincoln Rhyme series. It's fast-paced and the twists just keep on coming.

The Good Stuff:

This was a terrific mystery utilizing modern day technology. At no time did I feel as though the author overstepped the bounds of realism with the technological aspects of the story, as I have seen many authors do with supposedly poetic license.

As usual, Deaver has done a terrific job of writing a suspenseful tale. Unlike a lot of authors with multiple books published in a series, he seems able to seamlessly switch to a new 'spin-off' series with a fresh perspective on detective work. I love the Lincoln Rhyme books and now, I am truly enjoying the Dance books without feeling as though the author is doing repeats with new characters.

The Bad Stuff:

There is only one aspect that I didn't enjoy. A chapter would leave the reader hanging with an assumption of some kind, then the next chapter would completely change the assumption with a type of 'deux ex machina' (sp?). Then, Deaver would go back and fill in the 'holes' with how the main character finally deduced something. I understand that it is a suspense builder, but it happened too often that the reader didn't get to see how the brilliant deduction came about.

Overall:

A terrific, fun read with a well-thought out mystery that keeps you hanging until the very end. Just when you think you have it figured out, think again.

Roadside crosses are harbingers of death and disaster in this latest Kathryn Dance novel. Dance, a kinesics expert and agent with the California Bureau of Investigation,is drawn into the blogosphere in the hunt for a killer. Is it the victim of cyber bullying or evil corporate meanies behind the mischief? If you are able to slog through the incredibly boring first half of this book you will find out.

I was disappointed with this novel and found it hard to finish. Deaver is the master of twists and turns and Dance is a character with potential. However, the action drags, the dialogue is inane and there are just too many last minute miraculous rescues. The computer tutorial did not help although the gaming sequences were not all that bad. There was also too much of the earlier Dance book contained here including the prosecution of her former love interest and the silly mercy killing storyline.So I'll put up a cross for this one and pray that the next book will be better.

Jeffery Deaver is one of the best mystery writers in the industry. He outlines and plans his books very well and you see that in the structure and flow of the story. He drops in little tidbits which turn out to be significant pieces of the mystery by the end. He is very good at deception as you think something is going to happen and he's fooled you as it goes in a totally different direction. His endings are twist-superb as they can change two or three times before the final resolution. You can't ask for more in a mystery book.

Did he achieve these things in ROADSIDE CROSSES? Absolutely Yes! This is a book that builds as the story and suspects are revealed. By the end, JD does an excellent job of bringing all the action of the story to a connective ending. I think the Kathryn Dance is actually more entertaining that his staple Rhyme/Sach series at this point.

Very good read for me!
