About the Author
Adam Gidwitz taught in Brooklyn for eight years. Now, he writes full time—which means he writes a couple of hours a day, and lies on his couch staring at the ceiling the rest of the time. As is the case with all of his books, everything in them not only happened in the real fairy tales…it all also happened to him. Really.

Mindy Mejia owns the space of taut, tightly woven plotted thrillers and Strike Me Down is just that. Contemporary Twin Cities-locale, with fitness/MMA brand called Strike, Mejia's forensic accountant Nora Trier is to find a multi-million dollar company thief. The multiple perspectives Mejia employs circles this edge of your seat tale and then doubles back to throw you in a new direction. Wow -- this is one stunning thriller. - review by Maureen
