Thrillers & Suspense Rocks!

Have you participated in our summer reading genre challenge yet?  This week we are focusing on Thrillers & Suspense novels.

Why read a thriller or suspense story? Thrillers are page-turning, heart-pounding stories we read because they are very much about life as we currently know it.  We read them for the satisfying moment when our hero triumphs over the bad guys.  Regardless of the setting, fathomless levels of secrecy and duplicity lead to moles,  double agents, and opportunities to inflict betrayal.  Current events, politics,  contemporary values, and state-of-the-art technology form the backdrop of the story.
