Suspension of Disbelief
Prepare for edge-of-your-seat suspense in this Thriller Short.
In this Thriller Short, bestselling author Tim Maleeny provides a classic tale laced with moments of dark comedy. Relationships between an author and his editor can sometimes turn contentious, but none more so than that between blockbuster novelist Jim Masterson and his editor Carl Ransom. When Masterson winds up with writer’s block and can’t figure out how to end his new manuscript, he comes dangerously close to not meeting his deadline. So Ransom pays Masterson a visit to prod his author into finishing the book, and that’s when things get dicey...creating an ending no one saw coming.
Originally published in THRILLER 2 (2009), edited by No. 1 New York Times bestselling author Clive Cussler.
