With 12 New York Times bestsellers and more than 3 million total copies sold, Eric Jerome Dickey is beloved by fans and critics alike. "Dickey pushes romance and deceit to the next level," praised USA Weekend. The Chicago Defender hailed, "Eric Jerome Dickey is an excellent writer at the top of his game". And the New York Times raved "[Dickey has] perfected an addictive fictional formula".
Now Dickey takes a break from his Gideon series and harkens back to two of his most beloved and top selling earlier novels Thieves Paradise and Liar’s Game. TEMPTED BY TROUBLE (On sale: August 17, 2010) is set in an all too familiar world of high unemployment rates and desperation. This pulse-pounder about love, betrayal, and the lengths we will go to survive in a ruthless world will delight fans old and new.
In an interview, Eric can discuss:
• Why he chose to set TEMPTED BY TROUBLE in modern times against a backdrop of recession and unemployment.
• His unique writing process and how he maps out the many car chases in his books by driving the route and videotaping the street and then writing in the action at home.
• His adventures traveling around the country and world for research. TEMPTED BY TROUBLE sent him on a cross-country road trip. He traveled to Antigua for Dying for Revenge, to Argentina for Resurrecting Midnight and will be going to Paris for his next book.
• How and why he strives to make his novels as diverse as possible, introducing different cultures and languages to his readers.
