Curated by M.L. Buchman

At the core of every thriller, there's a great team. Yeah, the hero/heroine is pretty amazing and may think they're the hots*** ones making it happen, but we all know better. Dirk Pitt without Rudi, Al, the Admiral, and a hot babe is just another dude with an odd name. Even the greatest loner of them all, Jack Reacher, tucks a couple folks close by his side before the end of each book.

So, I set out to assemble my team. Part of the joy of a thriller is you never quite know how they're going to come together. They show up in odd ways. Sometimes they're sought after, sometimes another team member brings them along, and often the adventure itself hauls them aboard. Assembling this bundle was surprisingly like discovering my own thriller's team. What's curious as I look at the results of this incredibly organic process is that the results are so impressive. (Yeah, I know that's what a team is supposed to do, but as my wife says, "Holy wow!")

Our team ended up covering a vast range of the thriller subgenres, like, well, "an 8-course tasting menu of riveting adventure." (I can't help myself; I wrote a foodie thriller. Sue me.)

Conspiracy, legal, military, political, psychological, supernatural, techno…it's all here. It's a hell of a team, and a team that just might give you a taste of Hell.

So glad to be aboard for this ride! – M.L. Buchman
