Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. The blurry line between mysteries and thrillers gets even fuzzier in this outstanding anthology of 32 new stories by such top genre names as Lee Child, James Grippando, Denise Hamilton and David Morrell. Patterson, in his introduction, talks about the "intensity of emotions" that thrillers share—as well as "the force with which they hurtle the reader along." This description fits such fine efforts as Gayle Lynds's "The Hunt for Dmitri," which takes the heroine of The Coil, Liz Sansborough, into an adventure involving her father, the infamous CIA assassin known as the Carnivore. But other extremely readable stories, like Alex Kava's "Goodnight, Sweet Mother," would qualify as straight mystery. Readers who favor one category or another may at first be a bit baffled, but lovers of crime fiction in general and well-told action tales in particular will be well rewarded. Would-be thriller writers can learn a lot about research and technique from Patterson's introductions to each story. Many of the contributors will be attending the first International Thriller Writers convention in Phoenix in June. (June)

The majority of these stories are fast-paced & well written from the top names in the thriller genre. A lot were based on characters from the authors other works, most of which I have not read, which didn't matter. I read the book from start to finish, resisting the urge to read my favorite writers first. All in all a great book!

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing July 15 2016

Out of the many short stories, I really only liked maybe 5 or 6 of them. I definitely wouldn't say most of them were "thrilling". I'm glad I got it for $2.99, though I think it should've been free.
2.0 out of 5 stars a long journey Nov. 8 2007

I thought this product would be a good way to broaden my horizon of thriller writers, especially since I drive a lot and get sick of the radio. It certainly includes a lot of stories from a lot of writers, many of them famous. But I was disappointed. The stories are weak, compared to the novels of those writers I've read. One of the best stories is the first, by Lee Child, who is probably my current favorite thriller writer. Beyond that I would say there are three stories that really work out of the whole bunch. There must be 30 or so in all. It's a long wade through mediocrity to get to the good, and the good are just good, not great. I would recommend buying a novel on CD from a writer you know you like.
5.0 out of 5 stars A great variety of stories. May 1 2008

I found this book to be wonderful. Within its 664 pages(paperback) there are stories from every viewpoint, and every style. I definitely found a lot of authors I hadn't read before that I will now seek further. I'm fairly new to the thriller genre, but feel as though I've had a great introduction with this fine collection. If you are a fan of the short story, or thrillers in general you will not be disappointed. Happy Reading!

I trusted the amazon reviews to purchase this collection and was not at all disappointed. The stories are long enough to create tension and suspense, and the quality of writing is excellent. If you are a sound sleeper, reading one of these before bedtime is a stimulating way to finish the day.
