Shane Gericke's picture

Shane Gericke

Bestselling author Shane Gericke has been held at knife point, hit by lightning, and shaken the cold sweaty hand of Liberace. He was born to write thriller novels! His latest is THE FURY, a novel of international terrorism that's enthusiastically endorsed by such bestselling superstars as Steve Berry and David Morrell, the creator of Rambo. It will appear in print, e-book, and audiobook in May 2015. Prior to that, Shane's TORN APART was a finalist for the prestigious Thriller Award, and named a book of the year by Suspense magazine. His debut novel, BLOWN AWAY, was named the year's best first mystery by RT Book Reviews. He's a No. 1 bestseller on Kindle e-books and a national bestseller in print. His books have been translated into German, Chinese, Turkish, and Slovak, allowing him to correspond with readers around the world, and yes, he has the fan photos to prove it. Shane, whose last name is improbably pronounced YER-kee, spent twenty-five years as a newspaper editor, most prominently at the Chicago Sun-Times, before jumping into fiction. He keeps his hand in nonfiction by writing for magazines and digital media. An original member of International Thriller Writers, he was chairman of the ThrillerFest literary festival in New York City and founding director of its agent-author matching program, PitchFest. He's judged the Edgar, Thriller, and St. Martin's First Mystery awards, and belongs to Mystery Writers of America and the Society of Midland Authors. He lives in the Chicago suburb of Naperville, the home of world-famous detective Dick Tracy, with whom Shane shares no resemblance except steely jaw and manly visage.

Martin Jay Weiss
"A buzzsaw of a thriller! Marty Weiss grabs you by the collar and doesn’t let you breathe till he throws you into the roaring climax at the end. If you like thrillers with action, pizzazz, relatable characters, and plain fine writing, you’ll love Flamingo Coast!"
