Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Jeffery Deaver's The Weapon, about the limitations of torture, and Ridley Pearson's Boldt's Broken Angel, which features a race to prevent a cop's death, provide solid bookends to this nifty all-original anthology, the sequel to 2006's Thriller: Stories to Keep You Up All Night. The 23 selections—all by members of International Thriller Writers Inc.—score hits more often than misses. One of the few non-Americans, Spaniard Javier Sierra, might claim the blue ribbon with his tale of impending apocalypse, The Fifth World. Lisa Jackson's Vintage Death keeps the reader guessing and on tenterhooks from start to finish. Marcus Sakey's The Desert Here and the Desert Far Away tests the strength of the bonds forged in the current Iraq War when comrades return home. Other contributors include Robert Ferrigno, David Hewson, Jon Land, Carla Neggers and R.L. Stine. In addition to a brief general introduction, Cussler supplies intros to the individual stories.

From Booklist

Clive Cussler takes the editorial helm from James Patterson in this follow-up to Thriller (2006). This volume again features another impressive line-up of crime writers, some household names (Phillip Margolin, Ridley Pearson) and some lesser-knowns (Javier Sierra, Harry Hunsicker). All are members of the International Thriller Writers, the organization that came up with the concept for the series. What’s different in this second compilation is that this time most of the familiar authors leave their established characters at home and strike out in new directions. So while David Hewson delivers a taut, exciting story, it isn’t about his Roman detective Nic Costa. Thrillers are not an easy genre to define, as Cussler points out in his introduction, as it has more to do with pace than with plot. But that’s good news for readers, who will enjoy such diverse story types as international intrigue (Jeffrey Deaver’s “The Weapon”), suspense (Hewson’s “The Circle”), and even a blend of political thriller and science fiction (Kathleen Antrim’s “Through a Veil Darkly”). An entertaining collection. --Mary Frances Wilkens --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
