Thriller fiction, sometimes called suspense fiction, is a genre of literature that typically entails fast-paced plots, numerous action scenes, and limited character development. It is sometimes called suspense fiction because of the heightened level of stress or excitement that it induces in the reader. Along with the aforementioned suspense fiction, it has more than a dozen sub-genres, including action-adventure thriller, techno-thriller, conspiracy thriller, medical thriller, serial killer thriller, political thriller, military thriller, romantic thriller, legal thriller, forensic thriller, and spy fiction.
