More About the Author

New York Times best-selling author Lewis Perdue was born (1949) in the Mississippi Delta and is the author of 21 published books which have sold more than 4 million copies. He worked as a newspaper reporter and photographer to put himself through college where he studied math, physics and biology. Perdue writes fact-based "investigative thrillers" whose plots are usually wrapped around science, little-known historical events or both.

His most recent novel is Die By Wire. He is currently working on a thriller which addresses Islam with the same intensive ,factual research and scrutiny as he did for Christianity in his bestseller, Daughter of God (which, without permission, formed the core of The Da Vinci Code).

Lew's previous thriller, Perfect Killer, is partly autobiographical and has received critical acclaim for its portrayal of life in Mississippi and The Delta as told from the standpoint of a member of an aristocratic, plantation owning family. He was kicked out of Ole Miss in 1967 for leading a civil rights march (some called it a riot).

A complete list of his books can be found here on Amazon and at LewisPerdue.com.

Lew has taught journalism at UCLA and Cornell, founded four companies including a wine company a magazine and two technology firms and been a top aide to a U.S. Senator and a governor. Along his ADHD-and adrenaline-fueled life, he's run political races for Congress, worked as a Washington correspondent (Ottaway/Dow-Jones, States News Service), a columnist for Gannett, The Wall Street Journal Online, CBS Marketwatch and TheStreet.Com. Somehow he managed to get his B.S. (1972) with distinction from Cornell.

Die By Wire is a fast paced and exciting thriller. Mostly set in Amsterdam, I can (as someone who lived there many years) attest to the accuracy of Mr Perdue's portrayal. Of the climate, atmosphere, street scenes, even the Dutch political scene. It all seems very real. Contemporary and scarily plausible, I recommend this book for any and all who enjoy the genre.

That's the sound of me responding to Lew Perdue's latest fast-paced, explosive Bestseller, Die By Wire. What a great read....if you like Bourne novels or better, the Matt Damon driven movies, you will be very happy to get a copy of this timely, techno-traveloque-social injustice thriller. Having spent weeks in Amsterdam and its suburbs, I was fascinated by Perdue's uncanny use of time, places and local color. Although, I wish he had included a series of maps. I ended up using a street map of Amsterdam to look up the various locations cited to add another dimension of realism to the story. Did I mention that Mr. Perdue knows weapons and weapon systems? What makes all of his novels seem so spot on contemporary is his excellent use of the lingo and semantics of modern military weaponry and how they are used. His intense research into aircraft avionics and sympathetic coverage and presentation of modern day versus "old ways" Sharia Law would bring both Captain Chesley Sullenberger and Angelina Jolie to tears. In fact Angelina Jolie would be a great Mira Longbow! Indeed, I also know who would be perfect for the "Colonel" depicted on page 133 as well! Needless to say Mr. Perdue is at the top of his form with this top to bottom, wire to wire winner.

Format: Paperback
Die By Wire is a top drawer novel of suspense with many interwoven elements from the risks the public is unaware of in aviation to child brides and the gradual introduction of Sharia law in other countries (and soon here?). An engrossing thriller that really IS thrilling. I was turning the pages to find out what would happen next to Longbow the heroine and I loved the conflicts in the relationships, the deeper emotions than one typically sees in suspense novels. Defintely worth buying!! Highly recommended.

I read it in a day! As always, Perdue has written another page turner to say the least. A cool premise as well. Where does he get these ideas?? I loved cruising through Amsterdam as well.

This one really sucked me in and was very hard to put down. Its a little disturbing to know how much non-fiction is in there. Don't think I'll be getting on a plane anytime soon.

Lewis Perdue is an excellent writer and researcher. The first writing of his I was introduced to was Daughter of God in 2001 (mind blowing). 5 years later while reading Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code, one could clearly see how Brown "borrowed" a lot from Perdue.

Die by Wire is the stuff Hollywood loves. His knowledge of weaponry, espionage, and certain arms of government is astonishing. He does not waste words. Give us more of Day and Longbow!
