"Real suspense comes from moral dilemma, and the courage to make and act upon choices. False suspense comes from the accidental and meaningless occurrence of one damn thing after another." - John Gardner - Writers Write Creative Blog
The best book ever is called "The Only Thing to Fear" by Caroline Tung Richmond. It's about what might have happened if Hitler had won WWII. It's more of a sci-fi book than anything but I LOVE IT! I was so sad when I finished it because it was awesome!
