Deaver talks about why so many lawyers become novelists:

“For me, a thriller is a very carefully structured story.  I spend eight months outlining and researching the novel before I begin to write a single word of the prose.  The skills I use to do that are the same I used when practicing law – researching and structuring a legal document or case.” 

Deaver’s newest bestseller, The Bodies Left Behind has 186,000 copies in print after two printings.
