Thriller Links

Little beats captivating stories that get our hearts and thoughts racing… Thrillers got me through math class as a kid and some of life’s toughest times as an adult. *sigh* Major biases aside, I find thrillers to be the most inspiring, absorbing works of fiction. And I love connecting with thriller fans and authors. If you’d like to delve deeper into the dark, sordid, twisted, inspiring, suspenseful, sometimes funny, sometimes romantic world of crime fiction, I suspect you’ll dig the following links:
