First Thrills: High-Octane Stories from the Hottest Thriller Authors Paperback – 1 Aug 2011
Product Description Review This is an incredible lineup of new talent. I'm delighted to be part of their introduction to an eager fan base. Readers will be surprised by just how good they are. -- Lee Child Hands down one of the best short story collections you're ever likely to read Booklist *STARRED REVIEW* Twenty-five twisted imaginations... an admirable attempt to give a boost to writers with whom the public may not be familiar... Lee Child who edited the anthology is a master of the genre but his choice of opener by the acclaimed Gregg Hurwitz is a risk: it is so accomplished and involving that the narratives which follow necessarily struggle to reach the same level. However none of the 25 is a stinker... There is a whole new lexicon to be learnt from at times but it doesn't take away from the quality of the tales and... it adds authenticity to what is often hardboiled crime fiction. Independent on Sunday About the Author Lee Child is the internationally bestselling author of fourteen Jack Reacher thrillers including the New York Times bestsellers The Enemy One Shot The Hard Way and the #1 bestselling Bad Luck and Trouble and Nothing to Lose.
