“This is the ultimate page-turner—a thriller that brilliantly blends psychological and physical suspense. It’s rare that you get either one in a book, but Jason Starr delivers them both in spades.” —Michael Connelly, New York Times bestselling author of The Brass Verdict
“Panic Attack is that rare thing—a novel that manages to be both flat-out terrifying and completely brilliant. Jason Starr’s prose is as taut, vicious, relentless, and elegant as a jeweled hand tightening around your throat. Even as it has you gasping, you can’t help but appreciate the grip. If there is such a thing as the perfect thriller, Starr has just written it. The ending alone will have you breathing in paper bags for a week.” —Jerry Stahl, New York Times bestselling author of Permanent Midnight and Pain Killers
“Fast-moving, psychologically astute, and 100 percent chilling.” —Andrew Gross, New York Times bestselling author of The Dark Tide
Welcome to the eleventh episode of the Reading and Writing podcast featuring an interview with Lee Child, New York Times bestselling writer of 13 thriller novels featuring Jack Reacher. Child’s latest novels include Gone Tomorrow and Nothing to Lose
“The ever-resourceful and vengeful Reacher takes on nearly a score of the bad guys in an exciting climax to an enthralling book…complete with cover-ups and numerous intriguing twists.”—Library Journal, starred review
“A superb New York novel…. Child grounds his hero’s hard body and hard-drive brain in believable detail, and he sets the action against a precisely described landscape.” —Booklist, starred review
“All good thriller writers know how to build suspense and keep the pages turning, but only better ones deliver tight plots as well, and only the best allow the reader to match wits with both the hero and the author. Bestseller Child does all of that in spades…. [He] sets things up subtly and ingeniously, then lets Reacher use both strength and guile to find his way to the exciting climax.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review
Welcome to the tenth episode of the Reading and Writing podcast featuring an interview with Kevin J. Anderson, the author of more than one hundred novels, 47 of which have appeared on national or international bestseller lists. He has over 20 million books in print in thirty languages.

Anderson’s latest novels include The Edge of the World (Terra Incognita), Enemies & Allies, and The Winds of Dune.
Praise for The Winds of Dune:
“Delivers solid action and will certainly satisfy.”
“This satisfying tale from Herbert’s son and Anderson follows Jessica, the mother of galactic emperor Paul Atreides. . . . Fans of the original Dune series will love seeing familiar characters, and the narrative voice smoothly evokes the elder Herbert’s style.”
Praise for the bestselling novel, Paul of Dune:
“This vital link between the first two books of the Dune saga begins immediately after the close of Dune. . . . This is good reading. . . . Standing well enough on its own for Dune novices, it goes without saying that it’s must reading for established fans.”
“Drawing on Frank Herbert’s massive body of notes, the coauthors of the new Dune series continue their expansion and illumination of the unexplored pieces of one of the genre’s most significant and powerful stories. A priority purchase for libraries of all sizes. Highly recommended.”
