It’s difficult to recall exactly when the idea behind STALKERS first came to mind. It was quite a few years ago now – I recall that much. I’m pretty sure I was having a brain-storming session at the time, taking my dog for a walk with Dictaphone in hand, trying to come up with as many high concepts as possible – either for story, novel or script.
When STALKERS first jumped into my head, I remember being quite shaken because it was so grotesque a notion that I couldn’t see it working outside the horror genre, and even then it might have been deemed gratuitous. However, the more I thought about it, the more I began to see how it could also fit into a police thriller context – that way it could be more about the investigation than the crimes themselves.
A slightly belated Happy New Year to you all, things have been a little hectic in the Killer Reads camp what with the snow and getting back into the work routine.
We’re kicking off this year with an exclusive video from bestseller Andrew Gross, author of thrillers The Blue Zone and Dark Tide. This March he publishes his 4th novel Reckless which Lee Child has described as ‘his best yet’.
Andrew has recorded an exclusive video for us reading the first chapter from the much anticipated Reckless. Enjoy!
International bestseller Andrew Gross is back this March with his 4th novel Reckless. Already described by the fantastic Lee Child as Andrew’s “best yet – including the titles he wrote with James Paterson – and therefore an automatic must read for lovers of fast, topical, can’t-put-it-down thrillers“.
Once again Reckless features Ty Hauck. Ty has left law enforcement for a job with a big-time private security firm. But he quickly learns that life in the private sector can be every bit as dangerous as wearing a badge – if not more so. When a successful trader at one of Wall Street’s largest firms is murdered his suburban home along with his wife and daughter, it seems at first to be a case of burglary gone wrong.Then another financial executive is found dead in a very suspicious ‘suicide’. As Hauck digs deeper he uncovers a horrifying financial conspiracy that stretches from New York to Central Europe to London. And the masterminds behind it will kill anyone who gets in their way…
Andrew has recorded an exclusive video of himself reading the first chapter of Reckless which you can view here.
