Definition of "Thriller Genre": The thriller genre is very broad and can be difficult to define.  However, the focus of a thriller ebook is typically on action, danger and suspense.  The genre can be broken into an almost infinite number of sub-genres, including action thrillers (think Clive Cussler ebooks), romance thrillers, psychological thrillers (think Psycho by Hitchcock), science fiction thrillers, and spy thrillers, just to name a few.  Common elements can include car chases, gun shoot outs, explosions, or in the case of psychological thrillers, the elements of danger can be related to the mental manipulation of characters by other characters.  It is an expansive genre, and one of the most popular at eBookHounds.

 

Some examples of the best thriller authors and ebooks of all time: Dan Brown (The Da Vinci Code), Robert Ludlum (The Bourne Identity), Michael Crichton (The Andromeda Strain), John Grisham (Time to Kill), John D. MacDonald (Cape Fear); James Patterson (Kiss the Girls).  As you can see, ebooks in the thriller category vary widely in their substance, and the sub-genres can almost be considered genres of their own!

Exiled to a desk job in Paris for stepping on the wrong toes, Blaine McCracken is a killer—a ruthless pursuer of truth who will let no one, friend or enemy, stand in his way when civilian lives are in danger.

McCracken gets results, and his country needs him now more than ever.
