My favorite modern writers are virtually all authors of the mystery/thriller category of novels and more specifically of the espionage, modern detective, and legal thriller. Deaver's novels are of the modern detective/police procedurals genre. He is famous and highly regarded. I have six of his novels in my Audible library and not a single one is rated 5 stars by me. Lisa Gardner, Lee Child, Karin Slaughter, Louise Penny, Jacqueline Winspear, Rhys Bowen, TR Ragan, Adrian McKinty, Michael Connelly, Clive Cussler, Mason Cross and several others that write in the same genre as Deaver have multiple 5 star novels in my Audible library.
There are more than 15 espionage thriller writers who have multiple 5 star novels. There are 10 or more legal thriller writers who write 5 star novels fairly consistently.
If I were to list my top 100 favorite mystery/thriller authors, Jeffery Deaver would not make the list. His novels are not bad, but they are consistently mediocre. It time for me to give up on Deaver.

An enjoyable one hour story. Great chess play with more than one simple twist of the knife.
