Thrillers: 100 Must Reads co-edited by David Morrell and Hank Wagner (Book Review)

Mysterious Reviews: Mystery, Suspense, Thriller and Crime Novel Reviews, edited by the Hidden Staircase Mystery Books

Thrillers: 100 Must Reads by David Morrell and Hank Wagner, co-editors. Non-series. Oceanview Publishing Hardcover, July 2010.

And so it is with the 100 novelists who contributed their thoughts on 100 thrillers written during the past 3500 years in Thrillers: 100 Must-Reads, co-edited by David Morrell and Hank Wagner.
