Hey everyone, I'm about to embark on writing my first novel and have been busy brainstorming ideas. I now have 14 and am having a tough time choosing which one to do first because I believe they'd all make great stories. So please help a brother out and let me know which idea you like the best. No in-depth criticisms necessary - just looking for first impressions - which idea(s) grabbed you straight off the bat and made you think, hmm, yeah, I'd read a book like that ... and why? Here are the ideas: A cash-strapped cop is offered $10 million to hunt down and kill a group of honorable professionals, who have all been offered the same deal. * After winning $41 million, a suicidal driver accidentally locks himself in the back of his ice truck, and must find a way to escape before he freezes to death. * After discovering a valuable treasure ship, a frustrated treasure hunter plots to recover the cargo in secret, when an unscrupulous government official - intent on recovering the gold himself - cancels his salvage permit. * A cryptologist and his team struggle to find France and England's gold reserves (hidden in Greece before the Germans invaded) before a ruthless SS commander does. * In the closing months of WWII, an Allied soldier sneaks into Berlin seeking a lost Nazi treasure train, which is also being sought by a ruthless SS officer. * When the parents of a young kidnapped girl receive parts of her body in the mail, an alcoholic detective is brought in to find the kidnapper before it's too late. * After crash landing on a remote island, a wealthy heiress struggles to rescue her daughter, who was kidnapped by a ruthless drug lord running a heroin operation on the island. * An imprisoned thief is recruited by the US government to sneak into North Korea and steal weapons research from Kim Jong-un. * After waking up with amnesia from a serious car crash, an ex-con struggles to prove his innocence when he's accused of murdering his wife and children. * When a US submarine hits an old naval mine and sinks, a troublesome cook struggles to help the survivors reach the surface alive. * When his wife and daughter are kidnapped in Mexico, a retired thief struggles to steal $10 million in 72 hours to pay the ransom before they're killed. * When he's framed for murder by the company that gave him a new identity, a millionaire struggles to prove his innocence. * When a young delinquent orphan inherits a treasure map, he enlists the help of a museum curator to find the treasure, which is also being sought by a ruthless dictator.
