I had the great fortune to be included in a great bundle of political thrillers. It goes on sale this evening and Nick Harlow explains the whole thing below. Bottom line, it’s a great opportunity to pick up a lot of great books for a very economical price–and perhaps find an exciting new writer you’ve never heard of before. I’ll close out my little introduction with a great quotation:
Kristine Kathryn Rusch: “In an unbelievable real-life political season, how about reading something a bit more believable? Try political fiction…”
THE POLITICAL THRILLER BUNDLE
The Political Thriller Bundle – Curated by Nick Harlow
If you’ve been keeping up with this year’s presidential campaign, you’ve probably said to yourself, “You can’t make this stuff up.”
Well, actually you can.
Four years ago I published Endgame, about a reality show star running for President. An agent told me, “Way too over-the-top. And totally unbelievable.”
(Which makes me wonder if Mister Trump read it and got the idea to run.)
You can’t argue with reality often being stranger than fiction this year. That said, it’s only fitting that we put together a bundle of political thrillers which are fiction… well, for now, anyway.
These days everything is political… while some of the books in our bundle touch on the race for the Oval Office, politics is not just exclusive to the electoral process. Our bundle kicks off with a classic Pulitzer Prize winner by Allen Drury, Advise and Consent, about the Supreme Court. A timely topic in light of Justice Scalia’s unfilled seat.
Speaking of award winning authors, we’ve got a novel from Hugo & Ellery Queen award winner Kristine Rusch,The Enemy Within, a cool alternate history book set in the turbulent sixties. What if there was yet another assassination of a legendary Washington figure?
New York Times & USA Today bestselling author Joshua Graham offers Latent Image in which a picture is worth more than a thousand words to the Secret Service… and the photographer is worth even more.
Michael Britton comes up with some of the most clever plots I’ve ever read. His novel Assassinware deals with electronic security and might have you disconnecting your computer from the Internet by the time you’re halfway through the book.
You’ll also find riveting stories on everything from contract killers to submarines, all with political intrigue. I love a good page-turner, and trust me, these books hit the ground running.
So if you need a break from the strange reality of the 2016 election, our political thriller bundle should be just the ticket. Our “campaign” runs through election day, and in this case, I think we’ve got ten winners. I promise no TV ads, no robo-calls, no direct mail appeals for money. I only ask that you read early, read often.
