I finished "Sleeping Doll" by Jeffery Deaver today.

I've read a number of Jeffrey Deaver books. They typically focus on a lone investigator (or department head) as he (or she in this case) investigates a crime. They usually don't have too much procedure in them, focusing more on the interactions. This book is much the same.

The book sees a skilled interrogator hunt down a killer after he escapes from a holding cell after she has interviewed him.

I found the book a little disappointing. I usually find Deaver's books rattle along at a good old pace, but that doesn't really happen here as much (with the exception of the twist in the tail), which meant I found it a less than satisfying read. Don't get me wrong, there are a lot of books that are a lot worse, but there are books that are better too.
