Format: Kindle Edition
This is one of the most compelling, interesting and completely inspirational collections of mystery and suspense authors I have ever read. A wonderful collection and such a wide array of authorial voices to choose from that you in a sense get the entire rainbow or gamut of points of view. The collection really proves the old saying that there are many rivers to the ocean as each author hits on his or her methods and tools and what constitutes important in the way of storytelling. Anyone fascinated with mysteries and suspense and intrigue will love this book, whether a reader, a veteran author, or a new or aspiring author. Highly recommended, this book ought to win an award. Jean Henry, editor, ought to win an award for bringing such a wonderful collection to us all.

This informative book will be of special interest to all mystery fans and to all fiction writers. Jean Henry Mead interviews an impressive selection of writers who represent all types of mysteries, including the traditional, police procedural, historical, western mystery, and suspense, as well as popular niche novels. Each interview serves to better acquaint you with the author, and each includes helpful tips to writers or articles that address important aspects of writing: recommended how-to books, launching a series, or commercialism vs. literary fiction. This collection is enjoyable reading and highly recommended!

You cannot go to the table of contents and click on an author to read their section. This is especially problematic if you want to jump from one author to another. The only links are for categories. For a book like this, it is essential to link to individual authors for ease of reading. To even see who is included in the book you have to keep going back to the table of contents and page through it. The chapter advance feature only takes you from category to category, not from author to author. Therefore, if you want to go back to the beginning of the section on a particular author, you have to go back one page at a time or search for the author's name and then find the appropriate location. Or if you decide you don't want to read the rest of the section about an author, you have to advance one page at a time until you get to the next author. Very poor for an anthology like this one. I've had this book for many months and find it continually frustrating.

I really enjoyed the different perspectives represented in this volume.
I am more of a traditional book person, but having this title as an e-book has been great, because I could read the small sections here and there.
