AUTHORS Herb Freed Genre: Romance BOOKS: Bashert (2017) Biggest literary influencers:It is difficult to narrow this down to a few because stories of all kinds have been the driving source of my exploration of life in every direction – and period of my life. The author who most influenced my writing is Philip Roth. From American Pastoral to Sabbath Theater to the Zukerman (Bound and Unbound) and the list goes on. I was influenced by his writing and strongly recommend every one of his books. Also high on the list is Saul Bellow. From the novels like The Adventures of Augie March and Herzog to the novelette To Jerusalem and Back. Among the very top writers whose work I read and reread often is F. Scott Fitzgerald. For spiritual exploration, I recommend Abraham Joshua Heschel’s God…

Jon’s Picks: 6 New Thrillers to See You Into Summer

in Thrillers by

Having already rocketed to the top tier of action thriller writers, Matthew Betley makes a bid for the highest slot with Field of Valor (Atria, May 22). Betley adds a chilling political, Ludlum-esque direction to his proven skills, pitting series hero Logan West against a sinister, secretive cabal behind a massive global conspiracy. At its heart is a plot to wage geo-economic war intended to pit China and the U.S. against each other in a no-holds-barred battle. Of course, dollars signs and decimal points often lead to bullets and bombs, and it’s up to West to preempt the seemingly inevitable catastrophe. Like Brad Taylor, former marine Betley has lived in the world his work encompasses and, beyond that, his storytelling…
