    The memebers of the ITW ( International Thriller Writers do it again.

    Thriler 2 with preface and editing by Clive Cussler is a book for anyone who loves to be entertained. If it is possible Thriller II is even better than its predecessor Thriller which was prefaced and edited by James Patterson. Each of the short stories in this volume grabs the reader by the shirt collar and drags them into a vicarious land of danger and intrigue. READ BOTH BOOKS and look forward to a third........

    Great Anthology

    The twenty three tales included in this collection are for the most part excellent and timely. The anthology opens with Jeffery Deaver's "The Weapon" focusing on torture while Lisa Jackson's "Vintage Death" contains several terrific thriller twists. "The Circle" by David Hewson will indirectly remind readers of the London bombings as a pregnant woman riding the tube hears a passenger mumbling "They will remember my name." Marcus Sakey's "The Desert Here and the Desert Far Away" examines how strong the bond the band of brothers forged in the battlefields of the Iraq War survives once everyone is stateside. Gary Braver's "Ghost Writer" was once a famous novelist, but now writes stories for other people to "author" as that pays better though leaves him depressed. Finally with Carla Neggers, Joan Johnston, Robert Ferrigno, Jon Land, R.L. Stine, and Lisa Jackson amongst others contributing, THRILLER 2 lives up to its subtitle of "stories you can't put down".--------------

    Good for people on the go

    I'm disappointed. Some of the stories are dumb and some OK.

    I will stick with Dirk Pitt, Issac Bell, and Deigo...

    I finished the book out of respect. The stories were good not great, but there are new authors. I cant say I will buy any of the aurthors novels..

    Most of the stories are really lame!

    There were exactly 2 stories in this anthology worth reading. Most of them were not worth the time expended. I would have hoped for better from Clive Cussler. His books are really great - I will continue to follow him as an author.

    Buying It Right Now!!!!!

    There's a reason why I'm getting this one: look at the name on the cover who says, "grabs onto the bone". Yes, the name is James Rollins. Not only do I like that man's writing but I would read anything that man finds entertaining and enthralling. I have the first THRILLER book that has a short story written by Rollins himself and I'm going to get into that one sometime this weekend at the houseboat.
    I would love it if there is to be a THRILLER 3, I would love to see Rollins name on the cover with him as the editor of that one with probably 33 writers of popular thriller fiction, that way the more the stories, the bigger the book...and we all know that bigger is better when it comes to books.
