Well I would say to read mine, but if you're outside Australia you can't, so I guess I would start by asking if you've read Wilbur Smith, who (I think) remains the master of the action/adventure genre.

Wilbur Smith is so very good on so many levels. Excellent reads whether you are reading one of his many series or one of the many stand alone novels. Good recommendation.

I believe I've read everyone of Wilbur's Novels and will probably try to read the all again...I say that because I'm 78 yrs old with COPD and not sure how much longer I have...These are MUST read Novels for the adventurer Tho...Not A Dull One In The Bunch.

I started reading Wilbur Smith when I was about 16, and all through my 20s and 30s I'd eagerly await the new book, buy it on the day of release. He has given me an enormous amount of pleasure, and even though I think his new ones aren't quite as good as the earlier ones. A lot of writers are compared to him, but none measure up, to my mind.

I recommend Kay Reno. She is brand new.. first-book is called "STAND-IN" and I have heard there will be two more fairly soon. I myself have read it and loved it... everyone else I know did too, and are anxiously awaiting the next one!

This book has been mentioned a lot lately.

It is very expensive for a kindle book.

Has anyone else read it?

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 28, 2012 4:46:32 PM PST
At $10 for the Kindle edition, from a first time author with no professional reviews, I doubt that I will.

All of his many many posts about that book were deleted by Amazon yesterday. Guess he is rebuilding the list.

Inveterate spammer. I wouldn't read that book if received for free much less pay money for and reward that behavior.

I agree with J. Brandt on some of those. I like Crais' Joe Pike series. Not as keen on the Elvis. Like most of Connelly's stuff. Love John Sandford, though I'm less thrilled with his Virgil Flowers character. Silva's good. Used to like Lee Child, but the last few books have slipped for me. Read a pretty good one by Alexandra Sokoloff last month. Not fantastic, but solid and good. I gave it a four star.

I could have sworn the posts were from someone else

Which is why I asked if anyone else had read it.

I didn't recognise the author's name

I just thought of another author. Thomas Perry. I've read a lot of his stuff over 20 years and he has been hit and miss for me. Some of it I loved, and some I barely finished. His new one, the Informant had flashes of his old brilliance, but he faltered in a few places. I gave it 3 stars, which could have easily been 3.5. And the book of Sokoloff's I mentioned was Huntress Moon. It was another one that had excellent parts and not so good parts. Still worth the read.

I have been hearing good things about Jon Land. Has anyone read any of his McCracken books?

@Roger: I've been reading Jon Land's work, off and on, going back to the late 90's. He seems to be having a resurgence lately. Not bad reads as I recall.

I read a couple of Land's early on. the most recent I read was Strong Enough to Die, I believe. It was a good read, but you have to stretch a little in suspending belief for coincidences. He has some good characters though, especially the antags. Read the sample. If you still like it, I think you'll enjoy the book.
