One of "The Twelve", British thriller writer, M A Comley, said, "It's an exciting venture and terrific opportunity to link up with such fantastic authors. Some of my fans may not have read some of the other authors before and vice versa, so it's a great opportunity to discover new favourites at a great price."

The authors who make up The Twelve are New York Times & USA Today bestselling writer, J.Carson Black; Award-winning writer, Joshua Graham, an Amazon and Barnes & Noble #1 bestselling thriller author; USA Today Bestselling author, Cheryl Bradshaw; Al Leverone, a 2012 Derringer Award winner for excellence in short mystery fiction

Prather, Kentucky-based bestselling author of The Jacody Ives Mysteries and finally, Michele Scott, the author of the popular Wine Lover’s Mystery series and The Michaela Bancroft mysteries who also writes international bestselling thrillers under the name A.K. Alexander.
