JUNE 2011 – CLASSIC THRILLERS CHILD 44 SELECTED

Uncategorized — admin @ 11:21 pm

CHILD 44 has been selected by the US Library Journal as one of their contemporary classic thrillers. It’s a huge honor, I’ve used the US spelling of the word.

Here is the article. And the link.

The thrill of the chase, a feeling of tension, and a protagonist in danger: these are the elements that readers seeking excitement and exhilaration demand in their fiction. Thrillers or suspense novels, now often referred to categorically as the adrenaline genre, often feature heart-pounding stories that cross many genres, including psychological, medical, legal, sf, and espionage. The classics, which set the standard for the genre, have given birth to many enduring characters such as James Bond, Jason Bourne, and Hannibal Lecter. Contemporary thrillers continue that tradition but with a modern twist—Lisbeth Salander, anyone?

Members of The Reading List—the RUSA/CODES committee that selects the year’s best genre fiction—here pick both classic and contemporary thrillers for a core collection.

Smith, Tom Rob. Child 44. Grand Central. 2009. 528p. ISBN 9780446402392. pap. $9.50. F
In Stalinist Russia, Leo Demidov is a complex man, a war hero and officer in the MGB, the State Security Force, and an idealist; however, when he suggests that the death of a local child may be murder and his wife is accused of espionage, he loses his coveted state position and benefits and is sent into exile. Despite this banishment, Leo relentlessly continues to unravel the case and soon believes that it is the work of a serial killer. This dark and brooding debut thriller is a compelling tale of one man’s struggle to maintain his beliefs and idealism in the face of the ultimate challenge of having to define where loyalty lies and where redemption can be found.
