You know how in mainstream fiction and literary and women's fiction there are so many stories that revolve around or explore dysfunctional families? That's something we don't really see in thrillers. I mean, we do often get dysfunction (hello, bad guy!) or damaged characters (hello, good guy!) bu... Read more of this blog post »
