A conversation with best-selling novelist Jeffery Deaver

Jeffery Deaver is one of the world’s best-selling authors. He regularly sells three million books a year from Mumbai and London to Tokyo and New York. He publishes one book each year, alternating between his famous Lincoln Rhyme (Rhyme is quadriplegic New York detective who is aided by ace investigator Amelia Sachs) books and his Kathryn Dance series.

This year’s book is “The Steel Kiss” about a brilliant killer who turns ordinary products into murder weapons. It all begins with a killer escalator.

Known for ability to surprise and shock his readers with unexpected twists and turns, Deaver delivers once again in “The Steel Kiss.”

Below, GBF committee member Larry Matthews talks with Deaver.


Deaver returns to the Gaithersburg Book Festival on May 21st to discuss (and sign copies of) his books.
