Thrillers: 100 Must Reads
Thrillers: 100 Must-Reads is now available for pre-order. This groovy tome features essays by top writers on specific novels that are classics in the thriller fields. Edited by David Morrell and Hank Wagner, it has contributions from Sandra Brown, Steve Berry, Tess Gerritsen and more. My contribution is an essay on Jim Thompson's "The Killer Inside Me." The book was influential to me because of its unreliable narrator, blunt writing, and the literary innovation of casual violence. Any fan of mystery, suspense, and thriller fiction should have this on the shelves or available e-reader!
