Thrilling Reads

So many books… so little time.  What if you could read 26 great thriller writers in the time it takes to read the average thriller?  Try FaceOff, a collection of tales that pit some very famous literary characters against each other.  Where else can Michael Connelly’s Harry Bosch join forces with Dennis LeHane’s Patrick Kenzie?  How about teaming John Lescroarts’s Wyatt Hunt with T. Jefferson Parker’s Joe Trona on a fishing vacation in Mexico?  How well  would Jeffery Deaver’s  quadriplegic detective Lincoln Rhyme work with John Sanford's sleuth Lucas Davenport
