As always Deaver slips in a lot of twists & turns & it's an entertaining diversion while I await his next novel.
The Debriefing is a case in point. A combined Police / DEA raid goes wrong just inside Mexico where he drug cartels prosper.
El Paso PD acted on a tip off and when long-standing detective Tony Wright hears about it he feels obliged to head out and offer support.
Outnumbered and pinned down something goes drastically wrong from Tony’s perspective and suddenly his presence there is questioned as he is ...more
This was my first book from this author. I love the Kindle singles since they give you an opportunity to sample an author's work without a large time commitment. This was a fantastic thriller with excellent twists and turns I did not see coming. A fast paced excellent short. I read this book using immersion reading while listening to the audio book. Scott Merriman did a wonderful job on the narration. I have a few other short stories from this ...more
I enjoyed listening to The Debriefing!
This was my first Jeffery Deaver novella, and it was a totally "blind" purchase when it was released. Not knowing what to expect and always distrustful of most short novella stories I took a gamble just to explore. Overall, I was not disappointed with the fast, action read.
The story focuses on two brothers, both detectives for the El Paso Police Department working to take down part of a Mexican drug cartel. Things go fast fast, starting the short but enjoyable ...more

This is a fairly short book by Deaver but it has you gripped from the start. I certainly did not see the twist coming at the end although there was a sign which seemed at the time incongruous at the hospital. I will not say any more as it could spoil the ending.
Four stars for a Jeffery Deaver book? Am I out of my mind? No. Well, yes.
This book has characters you care about. It has intrigue. It has gunfights. It has everything I love about his books.
Except it is too short.
Way too short. As short as it is, it's exceptionally well written and exciting and that’s what a story should be.
A fantastic short story, Deaver writes intrigue like no-one else, short story or long novel the plot twists just keep corkscrewing on and on, over and over, leaving you exhilarated but dazed by the end.
To be able to read this on Kindle Unlimited is a gift, but even if you have to pay 99p for it you won't be disappointed, Deaver has delivered once again!
An interesting short story by one of my favorite authors.
