Description - Solitude Creek by Jeffery Deaver

The fourth electrifying thriller in the Kathryn Dance series from master of suspense Jeffery Deaver.

One mistake is all it takes.

Busted back to rookie after losing her gun in an interrogation gone bad, California Bureau of Investigation Agent Kathryn Dance finds herself making routine insurance checks after a roadhouse fire.

But Dance is a highly trained expert in body language: her most deadly weapon is her instinct, and they can't take that away from her.

And when the evidence at the club points to something more than a tragic accident, she isn't going to let protocol stop her doing everything in her power to take down the perp.

Someone out there is using the panic of crowds to kill, and Dance must find out who, before he strikes again . . .

4 stars

Solitude Creek is the fourth book in the Kathryn Dance series by popular American author, Jeffery Deaver. Kinesics expert and CBI Agent, Kathryn Dance is a skilled interviewer, but when her assessment of a witness to major gang crime goes wrong, she is relegated to Civ Div, weaponless and checking on regulatory compliances. On a routine check after a fire at a concert at Solitude Creek, Kathryn discovers that the tragic deaths and injuries are not the result of an unfortunate accident, but rather, due to the deliberate actions of an unknown perpetrator.

Before her investigations progress far, a similar situation involving crowd panic at another venue results in more injuries and deaths. As Kathryn and MCSO officer, Michael O’Neil try to track down this clever killer, Kathryn also stays involved in the crime gang case, under her boss’s radar. O’Neil has other cases to monitor as well: a missing farmer, a dead Jane Doe in a motel room and a spate of racially-motivated graffiti and vandalism.

Once again, Deaver gives his readers an original plot with plenty of twists and red herrings. His tale graphically illustrates the potential dangers faced at crowded venues and the power of social media to effect a mob mentality leading to stampede in the face of panic. He also highlights the plight of Americans of Japanese ancestry interned in “Relocation Centres” during World War Two, the unfairness of certain land acquisition laws and the existence of on-demand snuff films.

This instalment includes lots of action, a sting, a marriage proposal, and a bit of computer hacking by Kathryn’s man, Jon Boling. There’s a bit of brand soup going on, with a generous sprinkling of clothing, shoe and accessory labels: perhaps the intention is to attract more female readers, but it does nothing for the story. Given his upbringing, the involvement of Dance’s son, Wes in racist activities is somewhat less than credible. Nonetheless, a page-turner.
