More About the Author
Gary Braver is the award-winning and bestselling author of eight critically acclaimed psychological thrillers. His novels have been celebrated for their high-concepts, careful craftsmanship, well-rounded characters, and page-turning momentum. Some of his titles have a medical slant including ELIXIR, GRAY MATTER, and FLASHBACK, which is the only thriller to have won a Massachusetts Book Award for Fiction (2006). His latest novel, SKIN DEEP, about cosmetic surgery, was published in July 2008 and was called "a gripping, twisty thriller that deserves a wide audience" by Booklist.
His next novel, TUNNEL VISION, which centers on near-death experiences, will be published on June 21, 2011. Of that book, legendary author Ray Bradbury has said, "I have long believed that science will move us more toward God and give us proofs of His creations. With TUNNEL VISION, Gary Braver provides a wonderfully frightening and insightful tale on this theme that shatters my bones and leaves me to piece myself back together."
Three of Gary Braver's novels have been optioned for movies, including ELIXIR by director Ridley Scott. He is the only thriller novelist to have three titles listed in the top-10 highest customer reviews on Amazon.com at the same time.
