Jeffery Deaver shouldn't be a reasonable man. His novels are marked by mayhem: torture, psychological disorder and a horrifying, if creative, range of violent death. He has written about kidnappers and psychopaths, all with a sense of enjoyment--of absolute relish--that makes one wonder what the 48-year-old author likes to do in his spare time.

The love life of the world's most glamorous, fictional martini-sipping spy is up for debate after the London launch of the upcoming James Bond novel, "Solo," an official 007 book penned by William Boyd. At the book party, Boyd speculated on the root of the original international man of mystery's sexual adventures. “It seems to me he wants a relationship," the Guardian reports Boyd saying at the novel's launch at the Dorchester Hotel in London. "It is not just casual sex. " The James Bond character, who frequently wears a tux in his day to day spying-and-killing wheeling and dealings, is almost never casual, apparently even when it comes to the many sexual affairs he's conducted.

"The Bone Collector" remembers what thrillers often forget. A tribute to old-fashioned craftsmanship and skill both on and off the screen, it's as crisp and efficient as its law enforcement protagonists, able to make the best of its traditional genre elements. Although his name won't bring many people into the theater, Australian filmmaker Philip Noyce is perhaps the key player.

Happy holidays. Alex Abella's aptly titled new novel, "Final Acts" (Simon & Schuster, $25, 301 pages), may not be totally appropriate fare for the jolly season, but it's worth picking up in the New Year. In it, Abella lowers the lid on the Pandora's box of murder, mayhem and mysticism he opened nearly a decade ago in "The Killing of the Saints."
