Another wow! An anthology of the International Thriller Writers. The premise…a face off between 2 members using their famous protagonist and writing the story together! I loved the premise and the stories, anxious to see in each circumstance how the characters would be put together (though I have seen hints to a few of these stories in later books 😂). You don‘t want to miss this if you are a fan of a good thriller.

🎧 Matchup was edited by Lee Child … FaceOff was edited by David Baldacci.

11 short stories with some of the best thriller/suspense writers of our day! I really enjoyed 9 of these! BOSCH!! Pendergast!

Easily digestible in small bites!!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

“I am perfectly indifferent to your comfort,“ said Pendergast. “Do as you wish.“

I perceive that I liked MatchUp (published later) better, but I rated it about the same (in stars, for places that do that). Again, liked some stories better than others. This is definitely a good way to sample a bunch of thriller writers at one time.

A group of international Thriller Writers got together and this is the result. One detective faces off against another to solve the case in a series of short stories. If you are looking to find some new authors this is a great place to start

#Thrillerfest starts next week, the annual gathering of top thriller writers, agents, editors, publishers and fans in NYC. While I am always crazy busy running it, this year I will make the time to share as many fun photos with authors and industry news as possible with my friends on Litsy. If you are in NYC next week you should really think about joining us.

Thoroughly enjoyable, fast paced anthology. Some stories kept my attention better than others, but with such a wide array of bestselling authors, that's to be expected. I definitely feel like I was exposed to a broad range of adventure!

This has been out for 2 years already - how is it that no litsens have posted about it yet?!?! My only choice is to stay up late reading, to make amends for us all 😏 Poor me! #mystery #thriiler

readinginthedark I saw that it had mixed reviews on Goodreads. Curious to hear what you think! 6y
BookDragonNotWorm @readinginthedark I'll be sure to let you know! 6y
DGRachel I read it pre-Litsy and enjoyed most of the stories. It added a bunch of books to my TBR thanks to all the characters with series I'd never read. 😳📚 6y
