    Authors Reading

  • “An intelligent, textured and taut thriller … First-time novelist Rick Treon hits a home run.

    Best Thrillers

  • “Rick Treon’s first completed work of fiction is an impressive, realistic dark thriller with an unnerving conclusion that wisely leaves a pathway open for a follow-up novel. … Deep Background is entertaining and eye-opening reading, and Rick Treon is a new novelist to watch.”
