If you're not Paranoid, you're not paying Attention by Wendy Whitman

If you're not Paranoid, you're not paying Attention by Wendy Whitman

The tagline of my debut crime thriller Premonition is: "If you're not paranoid, you're not paying attention." I've gotten great feedback on it and most people seem to relate to it. Although my novel is fiction, I incorporated more than twenty true cases throughout the narrative from the protagonist's point of view which I think makes it very unique for a crime thriller. One of my favorite excerpts from the book is: "When Cary had trouble falling asleep, which was most nights these days, she thought about crime-related things. She pondered that she associated almost everything with murder. If someone mentioned a place, say Chicago, it was the student nurse victims; Wichita conjured up the Carr Brothers' killing spree and Dennis Rader; Indianapolis, the murders of seven members of the same family spanning three generations; and Knoxville, Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom. If she met someone from Seattle, the Space Needle didn't come to mind, only Gary Ridgway. What a warped view of the world she had."
