More Twisted, Jeffery Deaver’s second montage of quick-hit, CSI-style tales, is both formulaic and creative. A woman is lured into a basement cell in ”Afraid” — which comes with an afterword for aspiring writers (”Yes, make your readers’ palms sweat,” Deaver urges, but ”make sure they climb off the roller coaster unharmed”). In ”Copycat,” an author struggling with writer’s block resorts to committing crime to generate material. Deaver’s brief stories don’t develop many characters — except for crime-fighting duo Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs. Instead, his focus is on the buildup of suspense before the often-elaborate reveal.
