Chanticleer Book Reviews is looking for the best books featuring suspense, thrilling stories that put the balance of world power or that will end the world as we know it. We include with Global Thrillers the Lab Lit genre. Lab Lit is when Fiction Meets Real Science and Research or stories that are based on real science and research up to a certain “what if” point.

Examples from

Enigma by Robert Harris; A brilliant mathematician struggles to crack German codes in the second world war. Historical Fiction
The Highest Tide by Jim Lynch; A budding marine biologist has an unforgettable summer.
Arrowsmith by Sinclair Lewis; A scientist/medic learns the hard way that pure research is more noble – and cures plague in the process.

GLOBAL Thriller examples:

Best examples of these are James Bond books, X-Men, Tom Clancy novels, and Star Wars/Star Trek where humankind is at stake or the planet is doomed.
