There was a time, when talking about politics, was taboo. Today, it is common place to read, or hear about one political view or another; expressed openly; and in some case violently. With so many political scandals being revealed, one tends to wonder what else is being covered up; and in the name of “Diplomacy” of all things. We, as a nation, have given a lot of power, to a few people. People we trust to make “right decisions”, for the good of the country; are those the only decisions being made…”right decisions”? “Too much power in the wrong hands”, can cause chaos. What about “too much power” in the right hands? Good intentions, don’t always deliver good results; then what about “bad intentions”. Politics, Scandals, Greed, Power, Violence; how do we begin figuring it all out? Tonight we’ll tackle “Political Thrillers”. We welcome back “Movie Maven” Ms. Karen D.” to give us her spin on the four, politically based, films up for review!
What actually constitutes a "Thriller"? Adventure? Action? Mystery? Page-turning ratios?
Browse around your local B&N (while you still can) and you might notice that the Horror section has dwindled to one or two bookshelves, while Thrillers and Fantasy novels can fill two or three aisles. It's clear that the Horror label is considered a minus to marketing mavens in the publishing industry, and yet--the Thriller and fantasy sections are chock full of -- horror books!
Hmmm. So what's the real deal? Join us this Wednesday at 8pm Eastern for a riveting, spine-tingling, bone-chilling, ________ (insert your own thriller cliche here), look at what makes a Thriller…a Thriller.

A word from the author: I'm an action-adventure author who first fell in love with the genre through children's mysteries like the Hardy Boys and Three Investigators. Later, I discovered Doc Savage, Indiana Jones, and Dirk Pitt. If you like contemporary thrillers, ancient mysteries, and creepy creatures from legend, give the Dane Maddock Adventures a try!

Her short stories appear in Mystery Writers of America and “best of" anthologies and mystery magazines, and have won or been nominated for the Thriller, Anthony, Ellis, and Derringer awards. Twist told me I live out of a suitcase these days. September was spent in Italy and Croatia; October, in Paris and Barcelona. Mid-December I am off to Iceland. Then, after a winter of skiing in Colorado and trips to Left Coast Crime in California and Sleuthfest in Florida, 2014 will find me in Australia and Thailand, France, Spain, Morocco, and Portugal; Finland and Norway; Turkey, Greece, and Germany; and Italy, finishing up in Los Angeles at Bouchercon. Why all this traveling? Research for my Finn Teller/corporate spy novels and short stories. On the story front, I’ve started another Henri Karubje tale. (“Footprints in Water” came out this past June in Ellery Queen; the first story, “A Stab in the Heart,” won the Thriller Award. Follow Twist at http://www.twistphelan.com
