episode 10: Jeffery Deaver: The Master of the ‘Twisty-Turny’ Tale

It’s the finale of TTNS season 2...and we have a treat in store for you! Theresa Talbot chats to number-one bestselling author, Jeffery Deaver. His books adorn bookshelves in 150 countries in 25 languages. As we find out, Jeffery has a strict discipline when it comes to his writing, telling Theresa that his is a craftsman’s approach to getting the words on the page. And it’s paid off as he’s sold more than 50 million copies of his books. The former journalist and law attorney believes that readers are the gods who guide his stories - so no pressure on all of us! As well as hearing about his latest books and plans for both the Lincoln Rhyme and Colter Shaw series, Jeffery talks about the thrill of hearing his words spoken by Denzel Washington and Angelina Jolie in the film version of The Bone Collector. His recommended book is The Silence of the Lambs by Thomas Harris
