I read "Boy's Life" some years ago and it's a terrific book. Terry brooks is good,too. But for a really good read, I'd recommend anything by John Saul or Dean Koontz. Especially, try Mr. Koontz's book "Intensity".

Hi Jenifer,

I recently finished a most unusual thriller--a novella written like a cross between a book and a screenplay--called Cobblestones. In this story, modern day Martha's Vineyard comes off looking more like colonial Salem, when a couple is accused of murder in connection with witchcraft. The story revolves around a hapless deputy district attorney, tasked with prosecuting a case that's light on evidence, but heavily weighed with island politics and prejudice. With lean writing and cinematic style, JT Cummins has created a fast-moving, suspenseful story that makes compulsive reading, right up to its climactic finish.

I wrote a fuller review of the book on my blog, The Book Grrl, at http://thebookgrrl.blogspot.com/2010/03/cobblestones-murder-and-wiccan-rituals.html

I highly recommend this story, if you're looking for a fast-paced, exciting read.

Cheers,
Debbi Mack, author of IDENTITY CRISIS

Another great thriller I've read recently is Breathing Water: A Bangkok Thriller by Timothy Hallinan.

The story is set amid the honky-tonk, flash and squalor of Bangkok. Told from multiple points of view, the main character is an American ex-pat writer named Poke Rafferty, who gets stuck between a rock and a hard place after winning a poker bet. Rafferty has a family consisting of - of course - a drop-dead gorgeous wife, Rose, who used to work as a stripper and an adopted street child named Miaow.

The problem starts when Rafferty wins Pan's permission to write his biography in a poker game, which seems like a major coup, at first.

However, Rafferty starts getting threats from mysterious sources who tell him not to write the book, on pain of death or perhaps worse to himself and his family. At the same time, Rafferty is pressured by other forces to write the book - a negative one - or else. (Or else what? Well, bad things. To himself, his family, etc.) Events spiral out of control as Rafferty is kidnapped, threatened, beaten and struggles to protect himself and his loved ones from both sides.

I've posted a full review here: http://thriller-fiction.suite101.com/article.cfm/review_of_breathing_water

I highly recommend this book.

Best,

Greg Iles is really good. My favorite was "Dead Sleep". His books are thick so you get your moneys worth. Also, I love Christian Thriller and one of the best writers here is Ted Dekker. You need to read "Adam" by him. My 34 year old son is a christian as am I and when he read this book it freaked him out. He couldn't sleep. Anyway, try Greg Iles and Ted Dekker.

This is not fiction, but it is a THRILLER!
It is "Endurance - Ernest Shackleton's Incredible Voyage, by Alfred Lansing. The true story of an anarctic exploration gone wrong in 1915 by a group of men headed by Shackleton. This was a page turner for me, and all I've loaned it to said it was for them. Read the amazing reviews of this book on Amazon.
I read a lot of medical thrillers, but this was more thrilling than they are, mostly because it is true !

Give my crime thriller, Dirty Hands, a look.

Here are what others have to say about it:

"Dirty Hands will give you a ride you'll never forget. I'm still thinking about it, and that is exactly what an author is supposed to make a reader do. This book is not for the faint of heart by any means (which is myself) but I could not put the book down. Each character is finely crafted down to the subtlest nuances. I think this is why the read seems so real and vivid. The ending absolutely defied everything I imagined would happen. Mr. Braxton is truly a genius when it comes to crafting a story. I can't believe he doesn't have a series of these books in publication already. When he does, I'll be the first in line. Bravo, Mr. Braxton!" - M.L. St. Sure, Author of Evensong

"It's a rare book that focuses on the "bad guys," building up sympathy for or, at least, understanding of their actions. Author T. R. Braxton does this well."- Clayton Bye, thedeepening.com

Dirty Hands- paperback
Dirty Hands- kindle (only 1.99)
