Book Review- Jeffery Deaver- The Sleeping Doll

Jeffery Deaver- The Sleeping Doll (Pocket Star Books 2008) 4

Kathryn Dance, an agent of the California Bureau of
Investigation, knows everything there is to know about interrogation, body movements,
facial expressions, reactions, and word choice. Now she is up against Daniel
Pell, a man who has been locked up in a maximum security prison for murdering a
rich family. New evidence has come about which points towards his guilt in
another murder case. Dance has no idea what his transfer to the lesser security
lockup will lead to, or just how dangerous a move that really is.

This book got off to a great start, we get to see Dance
doing what she does best, interrogating. Then when the escape takes place the
action revs up and does not really let up until near the end. It had a great
plot with some very good twists, some expected, but most unexpected. I did feel
that the book could have ended about 80 pages before it did. The ending all
seemed like he was trying to do too much, coming across like fluff that just
dragged things on. That being said the characters were great and seemed to jump
off of every page. Overall I thought it was a good book, the first in this
series and I will certainly be reading more.
