What is Jeremy Robinson reading?

Today's featured contributor at Writers Read: Jeremy Robinson, author of the highly acclaimed Jack Sigler thrillers, Pulse, Instinct, and Threshold.

His entry begins:
Right now I’m reading The Shepherd by Ethan Cross. It’s a serial killer story, which normally isn’t my thing because I am easily freaked out by horror when it could be real (monsters don’t bother me). And now I’m locking my windows and doors at night because this is one freaky story!

Among the early praise for Threshold:
"In Robinson's latest action fest, Jack Sigler, King of the Chess Team--a Delta Forces unit whose gonzo members take the names of chess pieces--tackles his most harrowing mission yet. Threshold elevates Robinson to the highest tier of over-the-top action authors and it delivers beyond the expectations even of his fans. The next Chess Team adventure cannot come fast enough."
--Booklist (starred review)

"In Robinson's wildly inventive third Chess Team adventure (after Instinct), the U.S. president, Tom Duncan, joins the team in mortal combat against an unlikely but irresistible gang of enemies, including "regenerating capybara, Hydras, Neanderthals, [and] giant rock monsters." ...Video game on a page? Absolutely. Fast, furious unabashed fun? You bet."
--Publishers Weekly

“Jeremy Robinson’s Threshold is one hell of a thriller, wildly imaginative and diabolical, which combines ancient legends and modern science into a non-stop action ride that will keep you turning the pages until the wee hours. Relentlessly gripping from start to finish, don’t turn your back on this book!”
--Douglas Preston, New York Times bestselling author of Impact and Blasphemy

"With Threshold Jeremy Robinson goes pedal to the metal into very dark territory. Fast-paced, action-packed and wonderfully creepy! Highly recommended!"
--Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of The King of Plagues and Rot & Ruin
