Loved for his chutzpah plotting and pageturning panache, Jeffery Deaver, like his novels, is full of surprising twists. A breeder of prize-winning briards, a former folk singer, journalist and attorney, he prepares his plots as tightly as a legal brief, and has now sold 50 million books worldwide. His first thriller featuring investigator Lincoln Rhyme, The Bone Collector, was adapted for the big screen and starred Denzel Washington and Angelina Jolie. Now he introduces a new series with The Never Game, which takes place in the cut throat billion-dollar video gaming industry in the dark heart of Silicon Valley.
Programming Chair, Mari Hannah, ex-probation officer, puts former attorney Deaver under scrutiny. Best known for her Kate Daniels series, in development for TV by Sprout Pictures, Mari won the 2017 CWA Dagger in the Library for her body of work.
