"In his provocative, caustic, and often hilarious survey of today's popular fiction, Anderson shows us who the best thriller writers are - and the worst. He shows how Michael Connelly was inspired by Raymond Chandler, how George Pelecanos toiled in obscurity while he mastered his craft, how Sue Grafton created the first great woman private eye, and how Thomas Harris transformed an insane cannibal into the charming man of the world who made FBI agent Clarice Starling his lover."--BOOK JACKET.
