Jeffery Deaver

As a young man, Jeffery Deaver was a journalist. Then he was a lawyer for a while. But then his first love, writing, took over, and Deaver became a mystery and suspense writer.

And he was very good at it, but his real smash-through success came in 1997, with his novel about a quadriplegic police detective named Lincoln Rhyme.

Since then, Deaver has written 15 Lincoln Rhyme books, and is one of the world’s most acclaimed suspense authors.

I had known Jeffery Deaver years before the series began, and we talked about his first Lincoln Rhyme book, The Bone Collector, when it was published.

So here now, from 1997, Jeffery Deaver.

Jeffery Deaver turned 72 last week. His 15th Lincoln Rhyme mystery, The Midnight Lock, was published last yaer.
