Once a Liberal Arts major in French Literature, J.A. Schneider, a former staffer at Newsweek, brings aspects of her fascination with medicine, forensic science, and human psychology into her gripping thrillers. I am honored that she read my work. This is what she says about my thriller, Overkill:
“It’s not immediately that I notice the smell.” This thriller grabs you from the opening line. Trying to heal from previous trauma, Ash goes impulsively for school’s winter break to Florida but cannot escape her feelings of dread. Trouble follows her. She finds herself first stalked by a troubled teenager, and then caught in a shootout at a nearby school. The police think it’s an attempted mass killing, but Ash suspects that the only victim was targeted by the killer. Can she persuade the police who he is before he comes after her?
This, the second in this Ash Suspense Thriller series, stands out for the mesmerizing quality of the writing. Uvi Poznanski transports us with her stunning prose, well-rounded characters, and dialogue. The plot twists are complete surprises, and pull us on to see what’s next. Nothing is what it appears to be, which is exactly what you’d want in a solid mystery thriller with a dash of romance. I loved this book, and recommend it highly. Five stars!
