My new book "Burden of Proof" is a fast-paced conspiracy thriller. It follows a fictional biological attack on the U.S. and subsequent government cover-up. It's on Kindle for $4 and in paperback for $18.95 (cheaper in Amazon marketplace). I'm donating $1 of paperback sales (70% of royalties) to American Red Cross for Haiti relief and .50 of Kindle sales.
Burden of Proof

Other good thrillers...I am a Grisham fan myself and really liked "The Broker" - kind of an old one, but really enjoyed it. "The Associate" is decent, but kind of predictable. I was only semi-enchanted with Dan Brown's "The Lost Symbol" give it 3.5 out of 5. Worth reading if you have the time, but not a big page turner.

Close Encounters of the Fourth Kind.
Not your typical blood and gore thriller, however, paying close attention to this film will scare the bejesus out of you.....

Little Blue Whales
A sadistic killer stalks the summer beaches of Oregon, striking at random locations and then the small coastal city of Cutter Point. As newly hired Cutter Point police chief Kevin Kearnes battles for control of his dysfunctional agency, fighting corrupt city officials and members within his own department, an accidental meeting with a beautiful and secretive woman leads to a second chance at love. That is, until an old horror from his past resurfaces, manifesting itself in the same murder cases he's investigating, and he is about to learn that the most dangerous secrets to keep...are the ones you don't know you have.

I recently finished an awesome thriller called Cobblestones. In this story, modern day Martha's Vineyard comes off looking more like colonial Salem, when a couple is accused of murder in connection with witchcraft. The story revolves around a hapless deputy district attorney, tasked with prosecuting a case that's light on evidence, but heavily weighed with island politics and prejudice. With lean writing and cinematic style, JT Cummins has created a fast-moving, suspenseful story that makes compulsive reading, right up to its climactic finish.

I wrote a fuller review of the book on my blog, The Book Grrl, at

I highly recommend this story, if you're looking for a fast-paced, exciting thriller.

Bound By Birth

BOUND BY BIRTH is getting great reviews.

Readers who enjoy fast-paced thrillers have and will enjoy BOUND BY BIRTH, a novel that combines fiction with the reality of literal identity theft, yielding a story as compelling as the latest headlines.

I highly recommend Working Stiffs by Simon Wood.

Working Stiffs is a riveting collection of six short stories (and one novella) about workplace dangers. Not chemical spills or falling beams, but the dangers of greedy and unscrupulous people looking to gain advantage over their co-workers (or even their bosses).

The protagonists range from people like the business owner taking drastic steps to hold onto his company in "The Real Deal" to the beat cop whose reputation is compromised when a street punk shoots him with his own weapon in "Officer Down" to average Joes placed in circumstances in which events spin out of control, such as the adman in the story "A Break in the Old Routine".

In the novella, called "The Fall Guy," there's a never a dull moment as protagonist-on-the-run Todd Collins is driven from one dire situation to the next while seeking revenge on a man who tried to set him up.

Wood is a master of dry humor and taut prose that builds suspense and tension to the breaking point. Plus he ends his stories with twists you'll never see coming. If you love thrillers, this anthology will more than satisfy.

NO GOOD DEED is a character driven thriller about a guy who's mistakenly accused of being an enemy combatant. There's an interesting twist to the story as to why he's suspected.

I would like to suggest "The Collapse of 2013" by Michael Hartland. It is a thriller that takes place in the near future and describes how to survive what the author believes is an inevitable global financial collapse and the resulting breakdown of social order in the U.S. By 2020 China has emerged as a manufactruing and miltary superpower and the U.S. has become a third world nation. It is very timely and a great read. It is available from Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Roger Weston says:
#62 Top Rated in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Fiction > Genre Fiction > Men's Adventure

An ex-CIA assassin who seeks redemption.
A beautiful archaeologist.
A treasure hoard on a remote Alaskan island.
A Korean billionaire who unleashes his ruthless killers to get what he wants.
Can a Bering Sea crab fisherman use survival skills from his past to save his friends and son?

Customer Review:
The master of assassin novels, Vince Flynn, now has serious competition. Roger Weston uses the opening paragraph, even the first sentence, to grab your attention and hold on to you till the end of the first chapter. Drawing you from the edge of your seat into the second chapter, Roger continues the exciting pace of the story, never slowing down, till he reaches the end. Frank Murdoch is the assassin with a conscience and a heart. He portrays the good and the bad in each of us, exposing our strength and weakness.

The Golden Catch

What a weird thread...

My 2 cents: one book I quite enjoyed lately was Memoria. A Corporation of Lies (An Action-Packed Techno-Thriller) It has a dark realistic feel about it, quite different from other books in the genre I've read recently. Funnily enough, it's also quite optimistic despite the dystopian setting. You can tell that the author believes in people's ability to create a better future for themselves. Quite refreshing.

I usually check The Best Thriller Movie List ( ). They only add the top rated movies to the site which saves time. You can browse the database or search by keywords like actors, year, decade, espionage, revenge, etc.
