THRILLER: noun—A novel, play, or movie with an exciting plot, typically involving crime or espionage. —Oxford Dictionaries
We all know how thrillers work, right? First there is the thriller intro scene that’s plenty…er…thrilling. Then butchered bodies start popping up, but local cops/spies/amateur detectives/teenage cheerleaders living over a hellmouth/superheroes/little old ladies with cats can’t figure out what’s happening. Only our reluctant hero can put the pieces together. And s/he better get truckin because the Dark Moment is looming.
Our hero enlists the help of a spunky sidekick/reluctant love interest/cat who is, of course, kidnapped by the Supervillain/Evil Corporate Exec/Other Side’s Spies who turn out to be just as ruthelessly amoral as Our Side/Global Conspiracy/Government Agency. There will be deadlines. Frequently exotic scene changes. Cliffhangers. Surely a timer counting down to zero before Something hits the fan.
