What was it like writing a female lead character, & why did you do it?Russell Blake: I wanted to create a hero who was complex, troubled, but had tremendous inner strength. I conceptualized that character as female, in the mold of an Angelina Jolie-type kick-ass protagonist, & the image stuck with me. Tess wrote herself, & what I thought would be a challenge turned out to be one of the easiest characters to visualize & feel.Q: Fatal Exchange has two discreet & seemingly separate story lines. Why?RB: I wanted to push the envelope & try something different. I always wanted to do a serial killer plot, a la Tom Harris. In the end, I decided to experiment with two concurrent stories, & see if I could maintain the suspense of both & then dovetail them in the end. I think it worked well; both keep the reader engaged & build plot tension, and they resolve nicely.Q: Fatal Exchange is written differently than most thrillers. Can you comment on that? It seems to speed along at a faster clipRB: Another experiment. I thought it would be interesting to write the literary equivalent of a season of "24" - a series of short, punchy scenes with huge impact ingrained in each. I started the first 50 pages like that & liked the effect, so finished the book that way.Q: Some of the scenes are so graphic as to make one wince. Have you gotten flack for that?RB: I had a few readers say they were cringing, reading between their fingers as they hid their eyes. That tells me I did my job. I think good fiction should take you out of reality, & be so evocative as to put you in the story. I wanted something gritty & visceral & shocking. The scenes are paced for specific effect, & I like how they wound up working.It's a fine line, because what makes one reader uncomfortable will be too tame for the next. But I will warn readers that if they're hoping for some sanitized, anodyne story, they're better served looking elsewhere. This ain't your grandma's thriller...
