A detective tracks a poetry-obsessed serial bomber—meter by deadly meter—in an explosively clever short story by international bestselling author Jeffery Deaver.When an improvised explosive device is found outside a hospital, the understaffed Middleton PD knows it’s up against a pro. No one takes credit for the sophisticated device—all that Detective Jake Sloan has to go on is a poem. The cryptic rhyme surfaced shortly after the bomb scare. But ex-soldier and football player Sloan has never been much of a poetry buff. When a second verse turns up, containing a message in code, he solicits the help of English professor Ciara Hawkins. Together, they rush to read between the lines and stop the countdown to tragedy. But as the clock ticks, Sloan senses that beneath this complex case is a motive that is simpler and more disturbing than anyone could have anticipated.
I suspected that something was up right from the beginning – and I was right, so that took away a bit from my overall enjoyment of this short story. The ending left me rather empty. Otherwise it was good but not great.
I was really drawn into this novella and even though I loved it, I am upset about the ending. I hope the next book continues because I need to know how it all goes down. I wish this was a full length book because I didn’t want it to end so soon. I’m hooked.
Loved the story, but…..want more! hopefully a sequel will be born! I’ll be waiting for Jeffery Deaver to write another with Sloan as the main man.
This story kept me on the edge of my chair from beginning to en. I never would have guessed what was going to happen!
Not a good story line. The writing felt forced.Unfortunate wasted time by author trying too hard.Maybe next time around.-
A great short story that grabs you by the short hairs. You want more but nevertheless are stupefied by the ending
