For years, Frederick Lowell has quietly managed the estate of the revered novelist Edward Goodwin. Though the author of only one novel, that book has gone on to sell hundreds of millions of copies, keeping Lowell comfortable, as well as Goodwin’s ne’er-do-well and feckless children. Then word comes that a sequel to the novel may in fact exist, and Lowell becomes a detective, navigating a series of startling twists that take him from a Hamptons retreat to a state penitentiary, from a Westchester homestead to a decaying Southern hotel. The Sequel is Jeffrey Deaver at his finest, diabolically plotted and filled with rich characterizations.

The Sequel by Jeffrey Deaver is one of twenty short stories within Mulholland Books’s Strand Originals series, featuring thrilling stories by the biggest names in mystery from the Strand Magazine archives.

Editorial Reviews

“[Deaver’s] infernal puzzle mysteries invariably inspire words like devious, diabolical, and devilish.”
