Jeffery Deaver (born May 6, 1950, in Glen Ellyn, Illinois) is an American mystery/crime writer. He originally started working as a journalist, but trained as a lawyer and later practised law.

Many of his books tend to promote lateral thinking, particularly his short story collection "Twisted". One of his books, "The Blue Nowhere", features criminal hackers (one using social engineering to commit murder), as well as a law enforcement computer crime unit. His most popular series features his regular character Lincoln Rhyme, a quadriplegic detective, and Amelia Sachs. (According to a 2006 interview on the Early Show, Deaver stated that he would rotate between his new series and Lincoln Rhyme each year.)Virtually all of his works feature a trick ending, or sometimes multiple trick endings.

Two of Deaver's novels have been produced into movies: "The Bone Collector" (1999), and "A Maiden's Grave" as the TV movie "Dead Silence" (1997).

Deaver also created the characters and - in a collaboration with 14 other noted writers - wrote the 17-part serial thriller "The Chopin Manuscript" narrated by Alfred Molina that was broadcast on Audible.com from September 25th to November 13, 2007.
