Wow, I just heard that I’m a finalist for the 2017 Thriller Awards. Breaker is up for Best E-Book Original Novel. Totally unexpected. Any time I can share an announcement like this with Megan Abbott, Jonathan Maberry, Laura Benedict, and Joyce Carol Oates it’s an honor. Wish me luck!
We have done a cover redesign for Disintegration and Breaker (Random House Alibi). Special thanks to Kealan Patrick Burke for his excellent work. The atmosphere and tone is much more accurate with these. What do you think?
STARRED REVIEW for Breaker at Library Journal! How exciting. JOIN THE REVOLUTION. “VERDICT: Thomas (Disintegration) has written an immensely readable thriller with an unlikely hero that will have readers eagerly turning the pages to find out what happens next. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.”
Today is the release day for my third novel, Breaker (Random House Alibi). It’s also the second book in the Windy City Dark Mystery series, but it’s a stand-alone title, so you don’t have to read Disintegration (but I hope you will). I hope you enjoy it!

So when I went to Transylvania this summer to teach horror writing in the shadow of Bram Stoker’s castle, I knew I’d write a few essays about my experiences. This article touches on setting, and how it seeps into my work—how it played a big role in my second novel Disintegration (Alibi) and how it […]
I’m thrilled to share with you the cover for Breaker, the second book in the Windy City Dark Mystery Series (Random House Alibi). This series is not like most traditional mystery series, in that we don’t have the same protagonist. What we do have is the same city (Chicago) with the first book set in […]

I started this in my MFA program back in 2009, writing the first half with my professor Lynn Pruett, who knew nothing about neo-noir.
