Joyce Nanceabout this book: I first got the idea for this book while writing my true crime novels. I wanted there to already be a "mystery writer's thesaurus, but there wasn't. So I wrote it myself. It took about four years. My head was on the ground the whole time. This book contains a lot more to it than just synonyms. It has examples of the word, quotes relating to the word, and lists that relate to the word.
Many of the words included in this book are mystery and crime related. The words dead, killed, and murdered are done to death. There is also examples of what the neighbors might say when questioned about the criminal. There are examples of threats the criminal might say to the neighbor. There are a lot of police and legal terms. There is also body descriptions and vehicle descriptions.
This book will open up your imagination. It will unlock thoughts that are already in your head. It will educate you and it will make you laugh. All that from a thesaurus? Yes. This thesaurus is meant to be your writing companion. Your buddy. The title says it is for mystery writers, but it is really for anyone who writes anything.
