<strong>Amazon Best of the Month, November 2008</strong>: Nothing is as it seems in <em>The Bodies Left Behind</em>, Jeffrey Deaver's quintessential can't-put-it-down thriller about an off-duty cop who investigates an aborted 911 call from a secluded vacation home and ends up on the run. From the opening scene (that'll keep even the bravest of you at home with the doors locked and the shades drawn), Deaver delivers a clever page-turner that reads like one of his tightly plotted and fast-paced short stories (fans should check out <em>Twisted</em>). Endlessly surprising (there is more than one jaw-dropping plot twist) and supremely gripping (two hours after cracking this stand-alone thriller, I came up for air and took a moment to shake the cramp out of my fingers), <em>The Bodies Left Behind</em> is one of the most entertaining thrillers of the year. --<em>Daphne Durham</em><br />
