Between the Lines: Thriller writers collaborate in ‘FaceOff’

The concept was inspired: Get together a group of A-list authors – members of the International Thriller Writers association – and pair them into 11 “teams.” Ask each team to write a short story starring the writers’ main characters, and have those characters interact in head-to-head and collaborative ways. The result is “FaceOff,” edited by New York Times best-selling author David Badacci (Simon & Schuster, $27, 320 pages; on sale June 3).
