Scarpetta | Patricia Cornwell
post image

Just got the amazing promo package for Patricia Cornwall‘s new book Quantum and now I can‘t wait for the arc. Some of the best promo stuff I have ever seen. The question now is, with Cornwell and Koontz going to Thomas and Mercer (an Amazon owned publisher), does this signal a sea change for the industry?

Pruzy I hope it is not going to affect the ability of the major publishers to publish less popular, but more literary works that may not bring in much money. The last thing we need is the variety of books published to resemble the unimaginative monoculture that is cinema these days! 2mo

Yet another outstanding international thriller from Chris Pavone. Featuring an intriguing and insightfully written female protagonist this book is fast paced and delivers several excellent twists as it comes to a satisfying conclusion. The tension builds nicely and he author keeps you guessing as to what trouble is coming next for the characters and how they will solve their problems. A classic thriller in every sense, highly recommended.

Bklover I love a good thriller! 5mo
KJHowe You will LOVE this one!!! 5mo

I was lucky enough to get the whole promo package with Tosca Lee‘s great new novel. While the book falls squarely in the post-apoc/prepper sub-genre the great characters, family issues and moral issues make it so much more than that. The pacing is great and plot very good. I really enjoyed this read and hope it will find the wide audience it deserves. Bringing a female/literary voice to this sub genre is a big step forward.

The Fugitive meets the Godfather. Set against the backdrop of the JFK assassination this novel combines a unique and compelling love story with all the elements of a traditional chase thriller. Layered and well written November Road was surprisingly moving. The characters were flawed and likeable and their circumstances drove the plot and personal tension seamlessly. Highly recommend this one.

Game of Snipers | Stephen Hunter

Pickpick

Stephen Hunter is the king of sniper thrillers and his latest Swagger novel shows no one is going to knock him off that throne! Just finished this fantastic ARC and loved every minute of it. Great characters, perfect pacing and a thunderous climax made this one a home run. I would give it 11 out of 10 and would recommend it to any thriller fan or anyone who reads English! Don‘t miss this gem.

Richryan52 Hunter is the absolute best! 9mo

Got to spend time with one of my favourite Aussies, Lee Holmes, super-chef, cookbook author and health guru, at the International Book Expo in the UAE. Her recipes are delicious, easy to prep, and healthy. She made time to discuss some of my health concerns with me and give me some excellent ideas to move forward with. Her strong knowledge of science and nutrition, combined with her positive spirit are an unbeatable combination.

Button Man: A Novel | Andrew Gross

Since Andy made the courageous decision to move into the historical thriller field he has taken his game to a whole new level. The Button Man is simply fantastic. Just the right amount of historic information and atmosphere without sacrificing pacing or character development in the slightest. The powerful and painful relationship between the brothers makes this book unforgettable. A clear 5 stars to me, highly recommended.

KJHowe @laura317 Historical thrillers are a growing sub genre. This will be Andy‘s third book in that field. I would start with his The One Man. It was really a breakthrough. If you ever get a chance to hear him talk about why he wrote that book and how he had to go to war with his publisher to write the book of his heart, take it. It is a profound and moving story.

For an author, no day is more amazing than Pub Day and today is U.K. Pub Day for my second novel #skyjack.

On the BBC discussing the release of #skyjack in the UK. My main character, Thea Paris, suffers from Type 1 Diabetes. By remarkable coincidence the first interviewer‘s wife has the condition and the second interviewer had just been diagnosed with Type 2. The conversation around the impact of the illness and how it should not hold people back from pursuing their dreams brought us together and was very uplifting.

Got to spend some time with friend and former teacher Lee Child at the Harrogate Crime Writers Festival. He makes a remarkable commitment to fan accessibility and had just jetted over from NYC after doing several appearances at #thrillerfest the week before. Best piece of writing advice I ever got from Lee was that writing is like music and you should read your work out loud to make sure you have the rhythm right.

Quirkybookworm It‘s hard to identify them! 1y
KJHowe @quirkybookworm I think you need at least a tablet size screen to do it. One of the cool thing about being a successful author (as opposed to an actor or athlete) is that fans don‘t always know what you look like so you can live a more normal life. If it was say Tom Cruise or Sylvester Stallone or Meg Ryan or Wayne Gretzky it would be easy. (edited) 1y

I had the honour of being on a panel with Stuart this year at the L.A. Festival of Books. He has a career every author dreams of and was a charming guest. His latest Stone book was as crisp and fun as ever. He uses dialogue so well to illuminate character and drive plot. His technical knowledge is sound but never intrusive. There are many reasons readers keep flocking to these books and Shoot First lives up to the tradition.

Parnell is a decorated Army Ranger vet. I always find it fascinating when subject matter experts write fiction in their field. Parnell does it well with his hard action thriller debut. As you can imagine he doesn‘t miss a detail, the pacing is fast and the hero aggressive. A great tale of vengeance this book should appeal to the military thriller fan. A word of warning, the violence is graphic.

This book was a step out for me and it turned out to be great. A charming and adorable story told by an author who can capture the imagination of a child and still entertain adults. For me it was a refreshing break from more adult reading and I am pretty sure I will give it as a gift to young relatives and take on further books in this series when I need a break. And the cover is just gorgeous. Magical. Who can say no to a cover like that?
