    Book details

"Two men of words... One seeking only peace. The other, violence."Tate Collier, once one of the country's finest trial lawyers, is trying to forget his past. Now a divorced gentleman farmer, land developer, and community advocate in rural Virginia, he's regrouping from some disastrous mistakes in the realms of love and the law. But controversy -- and danger -- seem to have an unerring hold on Tate. Even as he struggles to rebuild his life, his alter ego is plotting his demise.Aaron Matthews, a brilliant psychologist, has turned his talents away from curing patients to far deadlier goals. He's targeted Tate, Tate's ex-wife, Bett, and their estranged daughter, Megan, for unspeakable revenge. Matthews, ruthless and hell-bent, will destroy anything that inhibits his plans. When their daughter disappears, Tate and Bett reunite in a desperate, heart-pounding attempt to find her and to stop Matthews, a psychopath whose gift of a glib tongue and talent for coercion are as dangerous as knives and guns. Featuring an urgent race against the clock, gripping details of psychological manipulation, and the brilliant twists and turns that are trademark Deaver, "Speaking in Tongues" delivers the suspense punch that has made this author a bestseller. It will leave you speechless.

Review Text

  • By Lisabeth Vefall on 10 January 2003

    Jeffery Deaver is a master of adding twists and turns to the story and specially to the end of his thillers, just as in this book.Tate Collier and Aaron Mathews are both brilliant with words. One used to be an excellent trial lawyer, and the other is a brilliant psychologist. Mathews is out to get Collier and his family, and is determined to not let anything stop him. Colliers daughter, Megan, disappears and it looks as she ran away. Now Collier and his ex-wife, Bett McCall have to work together to try to stop him.A psychopath is gifted with a glib tongue can be as deadly as anything, and it doesn't make it any better when he's seeking violence and more important... he's looking for revenge!Maybe not Deaver's best book, but still worth to read if you love thrillers. To some this one might be a disappointment after reading other of his books.

    Better stick with The Coffin Dancer or The Bone Collector which I would give 5 stars each.For me, this one just didn't work. I am a great fan of Jeffery Deaver, but this one just didn't hold the usual suspense. My wife however thought it much better than I, so maybe it is a personal thing.It wasn't a bad book, but it had few of the twists typical of Deaver. If you have read all his others, then in my opinion it will disappoint

    A friend gave me this book because she knew I liked Deaver. It has his usual twists but it seems like he just got fed up with the story and decided to finish the book. We know what happens in the end, but there seems to be a part missing as to how we actually got there. It was only after I finished it that I checked the publishing date and found it to be an earlier novel. Still on to better things Jeffery!

    My husband bought me my first Jeffery Deaver book, and have since read many more on my kindle. Brilliant writer that keeps you on the edge of your seat. Would recommend to anyone who likes crime thrillers

    skimmed through most of it, very weak plot and weak characterisation. Would not recommend to anyone. Shame because previous book the the same author was good.

    This is so typically Jeffery Deaver at his best. This man just has the skill of writing a tales that keeps you riveted from the first page to the last
