Jeffery Deaver writes very fast-paced thrillers; probably the most prominent characteristic of his writing is the frequent plot twists. The Lincoln Rhyme series, about a paraplegic crime scene investigator, is what I am most familiar with. That series begins with The Bone Collector; I would recommend that as a good place to start if you are interested in reading Jeffery Deaver.

Jeffery Deaver was born outside of Chicago in 1950. His father was an advertising copywriter and his mother was a homemaker. He has one younger sister who writes novels for teenagers ? Julie Reece Deaver.

Deaver wrote his first book ? which consisted of two entire chapters ? when he was eleven, and he's been writing ever since. An award-winning poet and journalist, he has also written and performed his own songs around the country. After receiving a Bachelor of Journalism degree from the University of Missouri, Deaver worked as a magazine writer, then, to gain the background needed to become a legal correspondent for The New York Times or Wall Street Journal, he enrolled at Fordham Law School. After graduation he decided to practice law for a time and worked for several years as an attorney for a large Wall Street firm. It was during his long commute to and from the office that he began writing the type of fiction he enjoyed reading: suspense novels. In 1990 he started to write full time.
