New York Times bestselling author Lee Child and International Thriller Writers, Inc., present a collection of remarkable stories in First Thrills. Showcasing many of the organization's bestselling authors as well as rising stars in the genre, here are twenty-five brand-new, never-before-published stories packed with murder, mystery and mayhem. A cunning criminal thinks he can use a child to take the rap for his crimes. A hospital intern turned body snatcher. A priest who comes face-to-face with his wife's murderer on death row. A Confederate soldier comes home to his love, but changed by more than just the war, he comes back wrong. The discovery of a flying saucer in the ocean depths brings one man to the brink of a massive revelation. A dying man's last request proves to his ex-wife that he's still rotten to the core. A clandestine operative finds himself caught in a wicked game of confusion, but who is calling the shots?
