NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul. 15, 2017--
(NASDAQ: AMZN)—Tonight, Anne Frasier’s thriller, The Body Reader,
was named the winner of the International Thriller Writers’ 2017
Thriller Award for Best Paperback Original Novel. Anne Frasier’s The
Body Reader was published last summer by Thomas & Mercer, the
mystery, thriller and true crime imprint of Amazon Publishing.
The Thriller Awards honor the best in thriller fiction in six
categories. Anne Frasier, a Daphne du Maurier Award and RITA Award
winner, is a first-time nominee for the award.
“I want to thank Amazon Publishing and the entire Thomas and Mercer
team. Anyone who has worked with them knows how wonderful they are,”
said Frasier. “I also want to thank my editor, Jessica Tribble, and
author relations manager, Sarah Shaw. And a big thank you to
International Thriller Writers.”
In The Body Reader, no one knows madmen like Detective Jude
Fontaine. Held in an underground cell for three years, her only contact
was with her sadistic captor, and reading his face was her entire
existence. Learning his every line, every movement, and every flicker of
thought is what kept her alive. After her experience with isolation and
torture, she is left with a fierce desire for justice—and a heightened
ability to interpret the body language of both the living and the dead.
“From our first reading of The Body Reader, we knew it was
something special,” said Mikyla Bruder, Publisher of Amazon Publishing.
“We’re thrilled to see Anne recognized with this richly deserved honor.”
Frasier is edited by Thomas & Mercer Editor Jessica Tribble.
2017 Thriller Award for Best Paperback Original Novel nominees include
Robert Dugoni for In the Clearing; Paul Kemprecos for The
Minoan; Jonathan Maberry for Kill Switch; and Stephen Maher
Book two, Body Count, in Frasier’s June Fontaine Series will
publish in June 2018, and will be available on Amazon.com and in
bookstores. Thomas & Mercer also publishes Frasier’s Elise Sandburg
Series. Book four in the series, Truly Dead, published in May
