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)

Excellent thriller with great narration!

I usually listen to Jeffrey Deaver novels only when I'm up to date on my 25 of so favorite thriller authors, so this excellent novel, the 4th and most recent in the Kathryn Dance series, surprised me. Different narrators have been used in each of the four books. With January LaVoy that have found the narrator who should be the voice of Kathryn Dance is future novels in the series.

- Wayne "I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!"

Smart Police Work...

...poorly revealed. I really like Catherine Dance, which naturally leads to me liking all of Deaver's works featuring her. Deaver is famous for engineering several major twists in his mysteries. That is not the case here. In Solitude Creek he shows his genius for surprise through revelations, explaining what has transpired after the fact. I found that dissapointing. That is why I said it is brilliant police work, poorly revealed.

Nevertheless it a really good mystery with outstanding characters. And its expertly narrated.
