Interview with author Lars Emmerich
Q - So, what makes the Special Agent Sam Jameson series special?
A - It's a mix of things, really. When I set out to write these
books, I wanted to create something that mirrored exactly the kind of
books I like to read. My top picks are usually espionage and private
detective novels, any of the thousands of thrillers and mysteries best
sellers, and, of course, books featuring classic pulp heroes. I also
like heroes with problems and villains who are frighteningly human,
maybe a little too much like us.
The Sam Jameson books are a mix of these genres. The series focuses
on the mystery and thriller / espionage genre overall, with a couple of
themes borrowed from financial thrillers thrown in for good measure, a
healthy dose of the stuff that makes political thrillers great, and a
serial killer novel or two to keep things interesting. Why such a mixing
of themes? Because life isn't monolithic and book genres are arbitrary.
There's murder in spy novels and there's espionage in political
Overall, the Sam Jameson series is designed to keep you turning the
pages. I've done my best to make sure there's never a dull moment, and I
think Sam's chutzpah and attitude makes for good entertainment. But I'm
probably a little biased.
Q - What order should I read the books in?
A - I’ve written the series so you can read the books in any order,
and all the story threads will tie up nicely by the time you're
finished. The Incident is a standalone story, and it occurs before the
Devolution series. If you do want to read them in order, I'd suggest the
- The Incident Season 1
- The Incident Season 2
- Balls Deep (A Peter Kittredge espionage and suspense thriller)
Q - So, why should readers give these books a try?
A - Because the Sam Jameson series is a fast, fun thrill-ride that
never lets up! Each of the books has hit the top ten bestsellers list on
Kindle for Women Sleuths, and each have been featured on Amazon's
Thrillers 100 Must Reads list - which is no mean feat.
Ultimately, readers who enjoy a blazing pace, characters with depth
and distinctive voices, and a plot that twists and turns all the way to
the end will enjoy this series.
