The GLOBAL THRILLERS Book Awards recognizes emerging new talent and outstanding works in the genre of  Lab Lit and Global Thrillers. The GLOBAL  THRILLERS Book Awards is a division of Chanticleer International Novel Book Awards and Writing Competitions.

Chanticleer Book Reviews is looking for the best books featuring suspense, thrilling stories that put the balance of world power or that will end the world as we know it. We include with Global Thrillers the Lab Lit genre. Lab Lit is when Fiction Meets Real Science and Research or stories that are based on real science and research up to a certain “what if” point.

2017 is the first year that we offered the Global Thriller Book Awards and we are honored to announce the very first authors whose works have made the 2017 GLOBAL THRILLERS Book Awards!  

Examples from

Enigma by Robert Harris; A brilliant mathematician struggles to crack German codes in the second world war. Historical Fiction
The Highest Tide by Jim Lynch; A budding marine biologist has an unforgettable summer.
Arrowsmith by Sinclair Lewis; A scientist/medic leans the hard way that pure research is nobler – and cures plague in the process.

GLOBAL Thriller examples:

Best examples of these are James Bond books, X-Men, Tom Clancy novels, and Star Wars/Star Trek where humankind is at stake or the planet is doomed.
