The April edition of THE BIG THRILL is here!

In this month’s cover story, Alison Gaylin talks about her up-to-the-minute suspense novel. Steve Berry takes us behind the scenes of his new Cotton Malone novel and why it’s different than any other. And Heather Graham, Lee Goldberg, Mary Sharratt, Charles Salzberg, and Dawn Ius discuss the creative choices that fuel their fiction.

In “Trend Report,” we look at what’s new in the genre of true crime. In “Author Guided Tour,” Brian Andrews reveals the secrets of the ultimate doomsday bunker, while in “Africa Scene,” C. M. Elliott discusses her Zimbabwe-set series.

Philip Kerr, the chosen subject of this month’s “International Thrills” column, sadly passed away before the interview for The Big Thrill was completed. We pay tribute to Philip’s work, and his latest novel, in the column.

This month we’re pleased to share not one but two debut author spotlights: Gwen Florio interviews August Thomas and Shannon Kirk interviews Clarissa Goenawan.

Other don’t-miss interviews: Linda Sands, Carrie Rubin, Michael Bradley, Don Helin, and many more.
