The only thing I can figure out is that tautness implies tension which is another thing you always hear about thrillers is that they are tense A taut rope has a lot of stored up energy in it and it may break at any moment so there's that So maybe that's what you need in a thriller energy plus suspenseThe First Assassin is about an attempted fictional assassination on Abraham Lincoln that spoiler alert never happened That takes out a good bit of the suspense right there; you know that the assassin won't succeed You can still tell the story though and do a

    PDF John J. Miller ´ The First Assassin PDF/EPUB ç The First PDF/EPUB ² ´ first book, assassin free, The First free, The First Assassin eBookNicely written and historically framed story about a fictional early assassination attempt against Abraham Lincoln The pace is propulsive I enjoyed the ride but really savored the very interesting and accurate look at Washington DC early in Lincoln’s presidency Also well and accurately depicted are the Fort Sumter confrontation slavery practices and the clashing attitudes as the Civil War began One star off because the writing though good is journalistic not literary and the fictional characters have very little depth
