David Khara talks about the journey of writing a historical thriller at Mystery Writing is Murder.
"I have always had a passion for history. I firmly believe the past enlightens the path to the future. It is all about what mistakes have been made and how to avoid making them again. This way of thinking applies to our lives as individuals, as well as to mankind in general. That’s what learning is about: trying to be a better person living in a better world. Unfortunately, history—and its mistakes—tends to repeat itself, as if we were unable, as a species, to learn. And that is why in my thrillers history always crosses our present lives to expose our inability to improve ourselves."
