If you want to know what thrillers have been most influential in the field, who would you ask? Thriller authors, naturally! One hundred top thriller authors of today take on the challenge of defining the top one hundred thrillers that have had the most effect on their genre. Short, entertaining essays show off the writing styles and talents of the authors. They'll make you fondly remember thrillers you've already read and set you up nicely with a reading list of new ones that intrigue you. This book belongs on every thriller lover's bookshelf! A few of my favorites are in the recommendations.
