Thrillers - Large Print Standing Order Plan

Thriller is a genre of fiction that is peaking in popularity and in the number and quality of titles available. In thrillers‚ a hero — sometimes reluctant — must find the resources to face down villainy against extraordinary odds!



Someone is hunting down America’s most elite special ops soldiers, taking out family members and innocents to make the deaths seem like accidents. Captain John Hayes, a retired special operations legend, pieces together a pattern behind the murders. Now he must find a way to stop a seemingly unstoppable weapon.
