    coy about showing their hands from the beginning Will the shark come back for a second bite Will Scarlett ever marry Ashley What will success do to Mitch and Abby McDeere Will Anne Welles and her two girl pals find love and happiness in the big city Will that faithless priest be able to save the little girl from the clutches of Satan Good questions sure Most readers interest would be piqued But are these questions sufficient to attract and compel large numbers of readers No More is required One way our twelve bestsellers stand apart is that each of them enhanced these dramatic questions by using unique and creative mash ups of traditional genres For instance at its heart The Hunt for Red October is a detective story and its dramatic question is straightforward Will the detective Jack Ryan locate the rogue Russian sub commander and thwart his mission But if that were all this story was about it s doubtful it would have risen above the other popular novels of its time Its grip on so many readers springs in part from Clancy s mingling the dramatic structure of the detective story with the familiar tropes of the novel of international intrigue then combining that with elements of the sea adventure and finally tossing in one inventive new ingredient a feature that has become a staple of the techno thriller the use of cutting edge hardware and technology which plays a role as central as the characters themselves not unlike science fiction So in The Hunt for Red October the potency of the standard dramatic question that fuels the detective story is increased exponentially when these additional elements begin to slosh together An average reader may not observe any of this consciously but even the most jaded among us can t help but be intrigued when we confront a never seen before species that somehow echoes other stories we ve read and loved We love the familiar and are excited by the new A combination of both is irresistible While it may not seem as fresh and original to us now in its day The Hunt for Red October was almost experimental in its novelty A large part of its success as both fiction and film was due to this crafty mixing and matching of genres and its use of a movie friendly principle called high concept that helps seize our attention from the very first pages THE SECOND ACT AND BEYOND Once the reader has been snagged by a novel s high concept premise on one level we are drawn forward by the momentum of the unfolding story as one complication after another challenges the central character and the original dramatic question mutates into another question and another How will Scarlett ever manage to marry Ashley Wilkes now that he s engaged to Melanie And how will she achieve her dream when she impulsively marries Frank Then there s the big annoying complication of the Civil War
