The chilling second Kathryn Dance novel from the bestselling author of The Bone Collector.

A highway patrol trooper notices something strange on the side of the road: a homemade cross, fashioned as a memorial.

Special Agent Kathryn Dance, kinesics expert with the California Bureau of Investigation, is on the case. The teenage victim points her to an online community where criticism is vicious. It looks as though one teen has finally snapped. Then further crosses appear. Now Dance must race against the clock to find the attacker before he can carry out his deadly plans for revenge …in the cyber world and the real.

Reviews

'ROADSIDE CROSSES is a gripping story peopled with memorable characters. No surprise. Jeffery Deaver is grand master of the ticking-clock thriller.'
Kathy Reichs
'Tightly constructed with a suspenseful story and plenty of plot twists, Deaver, perhaps more than any other crime writer, is able to fool even the most experienced readers with his right-angle turns . . . an excellent entry in what promises to be a series as popular as the author's Lincoln Rhyme novels'
<i>Booklist</i>
'Deaver's familiar complex plotting always allows for strong character and the blend remains as potent and chilling as ever. One of the most reliable thrill merchants on the scene.'
