Fans of Paul Auster or Peter Abrahams’ smart, psychological suspense will devour The Crime of Julian Wells. When true crime writer Wells commits suicide, his best friend, the literary critic Philip Anders, embarks on a fact-finding mission that sheds new light on Wells’ tortured life.
Wells' writing cataloged the worst of humankind—the most notorious murderers in history. But as Anders re-reads his friend’s books, he starts to see a disturbing pattern emerge. Could it be that Wells shared some of the same loathsome impulses? And could his inner demons have led him to take his life?

Each week, we ask our featured author to recommend a book or author that you may want to check out. Since authors are such passionate readers themselves, we thought you might like to find out what they love to read, too! Here’s what Thomas recommends:
Simon Mawer's Trapeze is a novel that follows the dangerous course of one such woman, a member of the elite core of female agents who were dropped into Occupied France, and whose life expectancies at that point were a mere six weeks. Trapeze is fast-paced, but it also offers a beautifully drawn portrait of a woman who discovers herself while fighting for something larger than herself.
