Top crime writer to visit Central Library


Lifestyle | Article

Peterborough City Council’s Central Library is proud to host a visit from the award-winning American crime author Jeffery Deaver, who will be talking about his work, with emphasis on his latest book, ‘The Broken Window’.

Mr Deaver has written 23 novels, sold over 20 million books worldwide and has been a Sunday Times bestseller in this country with his last 10 books. More information about the author and his work can be found on his website www.jefferydeaver.com.

His most popular character is Lincoln Rhyme, a quadriplegic forensic detective, who has appeared in seven of his novels so far. Denzel Washington played Lincoln Rhyme in the feature film version of The Bone Collector.


The Broken Window is the eighth novel featuring Lincoln Rhyme and sees the detective up against the most terrifying, thought-provoking and ultimate 21st century criminal – an identity thief who tracks down his victims and then spins a web of false evidence to pin the crime on an innocent stooge. The latest book is what Deaver fans worldwide have been waiting for; not only does it contain all his trademark twists and turns but the book also reveals for the first time the family background of the brusque central character.

Mr Deaver will be appearing at the John Clare Theatre, Central Library, Peterborough, on Thursday 24 July at 1 pm.

Tickets cost £3 (£2 concessions) and are available from Central Library or from Waterstone’s in Bridge Street. For further information please contact reader services on 01733 864277.
