Le French Book Writers at Thrillerfest

Two top thriller writers from France—Eric Giacometti and David Khara—will be attending International Thriller Writers' Thrillerfest from July 9-11 in New York City. On a panel about thrillers on the international market, they will be joining top thriller writers from around the world for this event.

Eric Giacometti's Shadow Ritual, which he wrote with Jacques Ravenne, came out recently in English. It's an electrifying thriller about the rise of extremism.

David Khara's titles available in English are The Bleiberg ProjectThe Shiro Project and The Morgenstern Project. These Consortium thrillers offer a roller-coaster ride that dips into the history of World War II, then races through a modern-day loop-to-loop of action and humor. What impact could the folly of World War II—death camps, medical manipulation and chemical warfare—still have today?

Thrillerfest is organized by International Thriller Writers, which has over 3,000 members in 28 countries with nearly 3 billion books in print.

Publisher Anne Trager from Le French Book will be joining Giacometti and Khara for the round table.

We'd love to see you there.

Giacometti Tackles the Proust Questionnaire on Book Trib

BookTrib, a "lifestyle destination" for book lovers, just ran a fun post by Shadow Ritual author Eric Giacometti, in which he tackles the Proust Questionnaire. Here the introduction:

Eric Giacometti studied biochemistry and genetics in Toulouse, France, before going into journalism. Then, at the height of his career as an investigative reporter, Giacometti was contaminated by the thriller virus. His life took on another dimension: journalist by day, novelist by night. In 2013, he left his full-time reporting job with a French daily newspaper to follow his passion. His newest U.S. release is Shadow Ritual (Le French Book, 2015), which he co-wrote with Jacques Ravenne. Here, Eric reflects on Spain, French footballers, and champagne.
