Anne Frasier, author of The Body Reader, Wins Thriller Award

thebodyreaderTonight, Anne Frasier’s thriller, The Body Reader, was named the winner of the International Thriller Writers’ 2017 Thriller Award for Best Paperback Original Novel. Anne Frasier’s The Body Reader was published last summer by Thomas & Mercer, the mystery, thriller and true crime imprint of Amazon Publishing.

The Thriller Awards honor the best in thriller fiction in six categories. Anne Frasier, a Daphne du Maurier Award and RITA Award winner, is a first-time nominee for the award.

“I want to thank Amazon Publishing and the entire Thomas and Mercer team. Anyone who has worked with them knows how wonderful they are,” said Frasier. “I also want to thank my editor, Jessica Tribble, and author relations manager, Sarah Shaw. And a big thank you to International Thriller Writers.”

In The Body Reader, no one knows madmen like Detective Jude Fontaine. Held in an underground cell for three years, her only contact was with her sadistic captor, and reading his face was her entire existence. Learning his every line, every movement, and every flicker of thought is what kept her alive. After her experience with isolation and torture, she is left with a fierce desire for justice–and a heightened ability to interpret the body language of both the living and the dead.

“From our first reading of The Body Reader, we knew it was something special,” said Mikyla Bruder, Publisher of Amazon Publishing. “We’re thrilled to see Anne recognized with this richly deserved honor.” Frasier is edited by Thomas & Mercer Editor Jessica Tribble.

2017 Thriller Award for Best Paperback Original Novel nominees include Robert Dugoni for In the Clearing; Paul Kemprecos for The Minoan; Jonathan Maberry for Kill Switch; and Stephen Maher for Salvage.

Book two, Body Count, in Frasier’s June Fontaine Series will publish in June 2018, and will be available on and in bookstores. Thomas & Mercer also publishes Frasier’s Elise Sandburg Series. Book four in the series, Truly Dead, published in May 2017.
