In a world where fear can paralyze even the bravest person, BEYOND FEAR shows the reality of those who conquer abuse, violence,

REASONS FOR READING SUSPENSE
10. It helps keep the publishers
in business. 9. It’s an excuse to pretend you are not an insomniac. 8. It gives your mind something to do if you’re
bored. 7. Keeps you from thinking about all those chores that need to be done. 6. It beats reading e-mail and is more
likely to keep you awake. 5. More relaxing than playing a computer game. 4. Makes you feel “literary.” (Hey,
I read a book!) 3. It increases your vocabulary: murder, mayhem, investigation, stalker, victim… 2. More fun than
a crossword puzzle. 1. And…it’s less scary than the six o’clock news.
