One of the essentials of a good novel is a strong central character, someone the reader can have empathy with, urge on, and on occasions get angry and frustrated with. Someone the reader can get close to and believe in.
I like heroes so I guess my strong central characters have to be that even if they are reluctant heroes sometimes as is Adam Greene in one of my stand alone thrillers, In Cold Daylight.
Heroes have to have flaws too, after all they are human.
