Douglas Preston claims he has no trouble sleeping at night. That isn’t always the case for readers of the novels he writes with creative co-conspirator Lincoln Child. The pair’s thrillers mix intricately logical plots, carefully sculpted prose, and gruesomely vivid occurrences into disturbing wholes. After a good dose of Preston and Child, going to sleep with the light on and the covers over your head seems like quite a reasonable decision.

Santa Fean Preston reads from and signs copies of his and Child’s latest collaboration, White Fire, on Thursday, Dec. 5, at Collected Works Bookstore. The book was produced the same way their other common projects have been: with old-fashioned hard work, creative insight, shared respect, and plenty of argument.
