You left out the fact that thrillers nearly always include a revolving
P.O.V. in them (think Elmore Leonard and Robert Ludlum). Ken Follett's THE

All the Best-
Brian (whose latest piece of work will likely be called a "historical
thriller," since it has a limited revolving P.O.V. between the protagonist
and the antogonist).
