Ah, February—a somewhat gloomy month in which we pretend an indecisive rodent is going to free us from early darkness. Luckily, there are some heart-pounding books hitting shelves this month to distract us until spring officially arrives. April Snellings goes Between the Lines with Stephen Graham Jones to talk about Book 2 in his gripping Indian Lake Trilogy, DON’T FEAR THE REAPER; ITW co-president and bestselling author Gregg Hurwitz shares what’s next in his beloved Orphan X series; Hank Phillippi Ryan delivers another diabolic cat-and-mouse thriller; Stacy Willingham talks about her chilling new tale; and we get up close with Charles Todd, K.L. Cerra, Rachel Koller Croft, and many more authors of exciting new thrillers. There’s a lot to love about our February issue of The Big Thrill—check it out today!
