About the Author
In 2004, Jeffery Deaver won the Crime Writers’ Association Ian Fleming Steel Dagger Award for his book Garden of Beasts.
Little could he know that his acceptance speech, in which he spoke about his life-long admiration of Fleming’s writing, would lead to him being approached to write the next James Bond novel.
The international number-one bestselling author of two collections of short stories and 27 previous suspense novels, Deaver is best known for his Kathryn Dance and Lincoln Rhyme thrillers, most notably The Bone Collector, which was made into a feature starring Denzel Washington and Angelina Jolie. His many awards include the Novel of the Year at the International Thriller Writers’ Awards in 2009 for his standalone novel The Bodies Left Behind. The latest entries in the Lincoln Rhyme series are The Cold Moon, The Broken Window, and The Burning Wire.
Deaver’s most recent standalone thriller, Edge, was called “an exciting new weapon in the author’s arsenal of memorable characters.” (Publisher’s Weekly)
Jeffery Deaver lives in North Carolina. Parallels between Bond's and Deaver’s lives include their love of fast cars, skiing and whiskey. Deaver is the fifth author to continue Ian Fleming’s legacy by penning a James Bond novel.
