Jeffery Deaver (born May 6, 1950, in Glen Ellyn, Illinois) is an American mystery/crime writer. He originally started working as a journalist, but trained as a lawyer and later practiced law.
His most popular novels features his regular character Lincoln Rhyme, a quadriplegic detective, and Amelia Sachs. Virtually all of his works feature a trick ending, or sometimes multiple trick endings.
The novel Vanishing Man is a story that centers around a serial killer loose in New York City whose slayings are patterned after illusionist tricks. When the killer illusionist uses his tricks to baffle and evade police, forensic expert Lincoln Rhyme and his longtime partner Amelia Sachs are brought in to investigate, setting off a tense cat-and-mouse chase where nothing is at it seems.
