The September edition of the Big Thrill is here!

This month we have an exciting line-up, including a Between the Lines interview with #1 New York Times bestselling author Kathy Reichs who talks about her life, her career, and her work on both a bestselling thriller series and a hit television show.

The September edition also kicks off a new series—International Thrills—where Layton Green and J.F. Penn will interview thriller writers from around the world. The first segment profiles Nele Neuhaus, a #1 international bestseller and one of Germany’s most popular crime writers. Fittingly, there are several other international stories this month, including the always exceptional Africa Scene and profiles on writers spanning the globe, from Melbourne, Australia to Tokyo, Japan to Manchester, England.

And, of course, we have 39 hot new releases from some of the best thriller writers on the planet, including debut novels from Matt Cook, Patrick Oster, Carrie Stuart Parks and Todd Moss.
