Gregg Hurwitz

Why do I recommend Gregg Hurwitz?

His novels are action-packed, emotionally engaging and riveting. His characters are rich and believable, and his plots don't insult the reader's intelligence. Gregg Hurwitz sets a new standard for suspense fiction.

My favorite Gregg Hurwitz novel is also the one the made me angry the most,
The Kill Clause. I have never had such a good time being furious, in a good way. I wasn't mad at the book, but at the awful things that were happening. This book will make you feel and will make you question what justice really is. At the same time it's incredibly entertaining.

Robert Crais (another author I enjoy) said of The Kill Clause, "The Kill Clause is a buzzsaw spiral into the darkness of lawless men hiding within the law and the damage they do in the name of justice. Gregg Hurwitz perfectly realizes the gritty, hair-trigger world of the U.S. Marshal’s elite Arrest Response Team with some of the most intense action scenes I have ever read, counter-pointed beautifully by the heart-wrenching story of a father's horrifying loss. This book is the real deal."

Another terrific Gregg Hurwitz novel is Do No Harm, an explosive rollercoaster ride of a story that raises complex ethical questions, in a shocking and disturbing way. Without giving too much away, here's a section of the blurb on the back of the book.

"...a disturbed man is stalking the Medical Center, and specifically the women who work there. It's up to Dr. Spier to keep the emergency room running smoothly and efficiently, even as his terrified co-workers wonder who might be next. But destiny is about to place him at the very center of a media frenzy that erupts in the wake of the attacks -- when the brutal assailant himself is dragged into the E.R. in handcuffs and placed under Dr. Spier's care…as a patient." (Italics ours.)

Gregg Hurwitz' other novels include a story of a prison escape, an Eco-thriller, an undercover cult infiltration, a biker gang war and a manhunt. Exciting stuff!

His new novel The Crime Writer, will be released on July 19th, 2007.

Cool! Minutes to burn is my least favorite of his books, but still good. If you like it, I'm sure you'll love the rest.
