Publisher's Summary

Jeffery Deaver, "the master of manipulation" (Associated Press) and "the most creative, skilled and intriguing thriller writer in the world" (Daily Telegraph, UK), returns with the new, long-awaited Kathryn Dance thriller.
A tragedy occurs at a small concert venue on the Monterey Peninsula. Cries of "fire" are raised, and, panicked, people run for the doors only to find them blocked. A half dozen people die, and others are seriously injured. But it was the panic and the stampede that killed; there was no fire.
Kathryn Dance - a brilliant California Bureau of Investigation agent and body-language expert - discovers that the stampede was caused intentionally and that the perpetrator, a man obsessed with turning people's own fears and greed into weapons, has more attacks planned. She and her team must race against the clock to find where he will strike next before more innocents die.


What the Critics Say

"Narrator January LaVoy excels in her timing, pacing, and sensitivity to the myriad subtleties in the story. She delivers children's voices of both genders extraordinarily well, and the wide array of adult characters allows ample scope for her ability to develop multiple voices for the complex dialogue.... LaVoy is so good as the lead that listeners will want her to be the voice of Kathryn Dance in all future publications." (AudioFile)

way too boring

I kept drifting away. finally I just quit. There was no mystery here. I guess enough to make it be called a mystery.

Okay Story.... Overly Dramatic

Solitude Creek is a good story - in theory - in that it's reasonable and very plausible for a disaster to happen as a result of a false cry of "fire" in a small concert hall. However, the over-the-top description of the catastrophes was way WAY too much. Maybe I would have preferred less dramatic descriptions and less use of the overly-dramatic voice used by the reader.

Yes, people will panic and people will run for the doors and people will be seriously hurt and people could die if the doors are locked. But the descriptions was read in a far too dramatic a voice which soon became vey irritating. For such a small venue as described, the blood bath described, along with that voice, was not believable.
