    Default Tops in Suspense: "Marathon Man," "Six Days of the Condor,"...and Your Choice?

    DEERFIELD BEACH, FL-- At SLEUTHFEST today, famed medical thriller writer Michael Palmer named two "perfect" suspense novels: "Marathon Man" by William Goldman and "Six Days of the Condor" by James Grady.

    (The former was adapted into the Dustin Hoffman/Laurence Olivier thriller; the latter into the movie starring Robert Redford and Faye Dunaway...with three fewer days in the title).

    Hard to disagree with my panel-mate Dr. Palmer. But it got me to thinking? What's my favorite novel of suspense? What's yours? Think of stay-up-late page-turners with the hero in nail-biting jeopardy).

    One of the most suspenseful I've read recently is Lee Child's Gone Tomorrow. I loved the way he used repetition and short sentences to make me tense, make me have to read on.
    Have characters, must write.
