What is Dean Crawford reading?

Featured at Writers Read: Dean Crawford, author of Apocalypse.

His entry begins:
I’m currently reading A.G. Riddle’s The Atlantis Gene, a modern thriller that ties genetic technology with the discovery of a former Nazi submarine buried in the Arctic, a secret government organisation and a potential ancient pandemic threatening mankind. I picked it because it’s the kind of novel that I’d like to have written, packed with multiple story threads...[read on]
About the book, from the publisher:
In the notorious Bermuda Triangle, a private jet vanishes without a trace, taking with it scientists working for the world-famous philanthropist Joaquin Abell. Meanwhile, Captain Kyle Sears is called to a murder scene in Miami. A woman and her daughter have both been shot through the head. But within moments of arriving, Sears receives a phone call from the woman’s husband, physicist Charles Purcell.

“I did not kill my wife and child,” he says. “In less than twenty-four hours I will be murdered and I know the man who will kill me. My murderer does not yet know that he will commit the act.” With uncanny accuracy, Purcell goes on to predict the immediate future just as it unfolds around Sears, and leaves clues for a man he’s never met, former war correspondent Ethan Warner.

The hunt is on to find Purcell, and Warner is summoned by the Defense Intelligence Agency to lead the search. But this is no ordinary case, as Warner and his partner, Nicola Lopez, are about to discover. The future has changed its course, and timing is everything. The end is just beginning...

Relentlessly fast-paced and action-packed, Apocalypse combines realistic science, suspense, and intrigue to create an ingenious blockbuster thriller.
