5.0 out of 5 stars A thumping good read AND a tool with which to make my millions, 15 Mar. 2009
This review is from: The Ingredients of a Good Thriller: A Simple Guide to Noir, Cops, Gangsters, Heists, Badasses in Book and Film, and How to Make That Genre Work for You (Paperback)
This easy to read and thought provoking guide has inspired me to have a crack at producing my own thriller!

I didn't buy it for that reason but Wood's clear, varied and well referenced observations and tips. Soon had me generating my own ideas and really understanding what I love about the genre and what is missing.

Although I greatly enjoyed reading cover to cover; the book seemed well indexed and was presented in a logical way so it should serve as a useful reference book in the future.
