Short reviews of the book and the author by writers of today. IMO every english lit student should read. For example, TARZAN OF THE APES book is very different from all tarzan movies.

This book is a wonderful concept, well-executed. Reaching back into history, exposing readers to authors that might not know of-- long gone as well as contemporary--and a fascinating look at the components of good thrillers. Love it. Highly recommended.

this is a great book if you're looking for historical context of the thriller genre.

This is a great book, whether you read thrillers or write them. In one hundred examples of the genre, dating back to the Illiad and the Odyssey and Beowulf, and up to the modern day, it provides a summary of the original author, a quick synopsis of the story, and what it was about the various novels that makes them great thrillers. But the bonus is that each of the reviews is written by a contemporary thriller author, with a short bio of them as well. By the time you finish this, you will have a much better understanding of the genre--where it came from and how it developed, along with a reading list of books you will want to hunt down and read for yourself. Excellent book.

If your looking for a good reference book to read this is a good one. As an avid reader I was familiar with most of these books but I did come away with a few that I'm going to read. It seems they took one book per author and I would disagree with a lot of the choices being the best. For example, The Hunt For Red October was a great Tom Clancy novel but nowhere near his best. Anyways, this is worth the buy.

Timely delivery as advertised. A great read through the history of thriller writing. The genre is much older than one might think.

My list would have been different. I had read a number of the selections and, because of this book, want to read more.
