The British writer Nicolas Freeling was a literary institution during his time, with a wide number of books produced in his back catalog. Largely focusing on mystery thrillers, he was a true master of suspense, building an air of foreboding within his stories, whilst keeping his readers guessing throughout. This all lead to him leaving a legacy, the impact of which is still felt today, as many writers continue to follow in his footsteps, entertaining generations of readers to come.
