SOLITUDE CREEK                                  JEFFERY DEAVER

A tragedy occurs at a small concert venue on the Monterey Peninsula. Cries of "fire" are raised and, panicked, people run for the doors, only to find them blocked. A half dozen people die and others are seriously injured. But it's the panic and the stampede that killed; there was no fire.

Kathryn Dance--a brilliant California Bureau of Investigation agent and body language expert--discovers that the stampede was caused intentionally and that the perpetrator, a man obsessed with turning people's own fears and greed into weapons, has more attacks planned. She and her team must race against the clock to find where he will strike next before more innocents die.

I enjoy Mr. Deaver’s books, but I had not read the other ones in this particular story line. Kathryn Dance is an investigator with the CBI and is called in to an investigation at a club that at first looked like arson, but upon further investigation they did not know what the person who started the panic and closed off the exits except for was all about. They did know that someone died and people were hurt. This type of scene would be repeated a few more times through the book while she and her team are trying to come up with leads. This is going on and she is still wanting to work on a case that she was ordered off before this one. So she is doing this without letting her boss know. She is also dealing with two children at home and working on moving on with her life from the death of her husband from two years ago. Sounds like a lot going on and there is but by the time you are about half way through the book it becomes easier. At least for me it was. You also get a look into the person who is doing the crimes which is a unique perspective. Overall a good story and the ending was good also. I got this book from netgalley. I give this 4 stars.
