Jeffery Deaver is one of our favorite thriller writers. Not only can he quickly tap out nail-biting suspense novels, he is also genuine, sincere, and from all our email exchanges, kindhearted. You might expect a more frightening visage from the creator of such twisted stories as THE BONE COLLECTOR, but you'd be wrong. Recently, Joe Hartlaub, Bookreporter.com's Senior Writer and thriller aficionado, had an opportunity to ask Deaver about his new thriller THE EMPTY CHAIR, future movies starring everyone's favorite protagonist Lincoln Rhyme, the honor of receiving the DREAM Award, and much more in our latest interview.
