I believe the secret sauce to success is about effort. Not exactly a secret, huh? But it’s one our ‘productivity’ obsessed culture likes to overlook for the hack or the shortcut.

More effort provides more opportunities for magical, overnight success.

But you have to start and not wait for the perfect moment. Never starting, or never finishing, is just a place to hide.

Here are 3 crime fiction links, 2 quotes, and 1 question for this week:



With the 26th Reacher now out in the world, two from crime fiction’s biggest selling bad-ass:

  • “No, I’m a man with a rule. People leave me alone, I leave them alone. If they don’t, I don’t.”
  • “I’m a rich man. To have everything you need is the definition of affluence.”


  • Do you plan on reading the latest Reacher book? Or do you get to a saturation point with a long-running series and let it go?

Until next Thursday, happy reading,


Author the Max Strong thriller series
