Bookreporter Talks To

Feb 8, 2022

Wendy Corsi Staub talks to Carol Fitzgerald about her new standalone suspense novel, The Other Family, which is a Bookreporter Bets On selection. Wendy has written more than ninety book, including five suspense trilogies.

In The Other Family, a family moves into a rental home in Brooklyn that's been vacant for 25 years and was the site of an unresolved homicide case. Someone is watching the house, which keeps members of the family on edge. Wendy talks to Carol about freeing herself with a standalone book this time around. They discuss a Victorian era tradition that seems macabre to us today.

Wendy walks viewers and listeners through the difference between suspense, thrillers and mysteries --- and this alone is worth listening for. And yes, she also left clues about what she's working on next.
