No Pain, No Gain: J. Kingston Pierce in conversation with writer Linwood Barclay. His latest thriller, A Tap on the Window, has just been published. Read the interview at Kirkus Review, additionals Q&As you can find at The Rap Sheet.

»A Tap on the Window is a rich stew, sometimes bitter but spiced with laughter. Most thrillers are deadly serious, but tragedy and comedy are hopelessly intermingled, and some writers try to integrate them.«
