Mysteries, horror stories, and thrillers keep readers' hearts pounding and their bodies firmly planted on the edge of their seats. The authors who have provided some of the greatest literary adrenaline rushes in history are profiled in this book. These individuals challenge readers to solve crimes, delve into the supernatural, and face their deepest fears--all in the name of entertainment and edification. By examining the lives of many of the writers behind these popular works--including Raymond Chandler, Agatha Christie, John Grisham, Stephanie Meyer, and Bram Stoker--readers will also learn about the evolution of these genres, as well as the impetus behind the creation of many best-selling titles therein.
