One of the best thriller writers around today is Rick Mofina. And lucky us, three of his best books with Jason Wade as the hero are available in the Jason Wade Thriller Trilogy. The three books are The Dying Hour, Every Fear, and A Perfect Grave. In the first book, Jason is interning at The Seattle Mirror, competing with others for a single reporter’s job. His competitors are ivy leaguers with extensive experience, while Jason put himself through community college and lacks experience. That doesn’t stop him, though, as you’ll find out.

I’ve only read a few things by Edward Gorey, but I’m a fan. I first fell in love with his work while watching the PBS “Mystery!” series and marveling at the wonderful illustrations in the opening credits.

We’ve read it so many times as a bedtime story, he has most of it memorized.
