Jeffery Deaver’s books should come with a warning: do not read before bed. His international bestselling suspense novels are almost guaranteed to keep you turning pages well past your bedtime. He’s known for his surprise endings and his 43rd book, “The Goodbye Man,” certainly does not disappoint. The University of Missouri Journalism School graduate shows us his detailed 140-page outline for his latest novel and explains why it’s vital to his writing process, talks about the genesis of his ideas and settings for his page-turners, and makes two promises regarding his career and well-known main characters including Colter Shaw, Kathryn Dance, and Lincoln Rhyme.
