The Best Thriller Novels Have Character

What Are the Best Thriller Novels? The best thriller novels are those novels with a central character that can get himself or herself out of any situation. Including death. After reading about such a character, readers usually never forget them. Characters like D’artagnon, James Bond, and Oliver Twist. These people sprung from the imagination of their respective authors. And yet those of us who’ve read about them consider them old friends. We long to know what happened to them after the last page of the novel is turned.

James Patterson’s character Alex Cross is an example.  Alex is a psychologist and a former FBI agent who lives and works in Washington, D C. He is very intelligent and cool as a cucumber. He is a good father and chooses to live in a high risk neighborhood even though he can afford to live elsewhere. He volunteers at St. Anthony’s Parish as his way to get involved with the community. He has loved and lost several women due to various reasons. He appeared first in “Along Came a Spider.”



Lee Child’s character Jack Reacher is another example. Jack Reacher is a different sort of guy. He is a former military police officer of the United States Army. He travels around the country with no luggage. When he needs a change of clothes he buys them and discards the old ones. He finds himself in dangerous situations quite often, but he manages to come out of them on top. He appeared first in “ Killing Floor.”




Kris Allis’s character Anissa Brogdon is yet another example. Anissa endures three years of her life with an abusive husband who goes to the outer limits of hell to torment her. She manages to escape and still maintain her dignity and sanity. She also resolves to never go back to him and finds herself literally running for her life. She first appears in “A False Start.”


 ++++The best thriller novels have characters that are not easily forgotten and they are so likeable that readers want to read about their adventures again and again if possible. Hence the best thriller novel series.The

Once is definately enough!

I made a false start at the Fox theater this past Saturday at a matinee for the musical “Once.” It was slated to begin at 2:00 p.m. We were  shown to our seats at 2:01. The theater was full, but not completely. As we made our way to our seats we had to cross other people because we did not have aisle seats. The audience’s eyes were glued to the stage. I looked at the stage as I walked to my seat and what I saw was a crowd of about fifty or more people milling about, some singing, some playing instruments, some talking. It looked like chaos.

By the way, the main character in my novel “A False Start” disappears in the chaos of 9/11.

Once ( not the play) we were seated, I too glued my eyes to the stage trying to figure out what was going on. Let me say that I am a frequent theater goer and I truly enjoy a good play. Anyway, the lights were still up, all of this craziness was happening on the stage, so I decided that it was a good time for a restroom break. If I had to sit through an off key, unorganized, concert thing, I wanted to be comfortable. Plus I could see. The lights were up! So I went. And when I returned the theater was dark and two people were on stage in a bar having conversation. Like in a play. So I missed how the craziness turned into actors reciting lines. All of that to say that it turned out to be a good play set in Ireland. It just didn’t begin like one. It was a false start.
