I like to support indie writers but I'm finding it hard to find what I want.

If I tell you my tastes, maybe you could recommend some? I know people on here get bent out of shape about spam so go easy.

I like - Jack Reacher novels, although in some ways once you've read one, you've read them all.

I like Clive Cussler, Chris Ryan and Bernard Cornwell.

The thing with all of those is that they tend to follow a formular and I want something more original. Nothing with religious over-tones or with vampires please! Other than that, I like historial and fantasy settings as well as present day.

I have enjoyed one book recently but for the sake of harmony, I won't mention it again here. If you check out my previous posts on things like "recommend a good military book" etc, you'll see why.

Only indie authors, though, please.

This is a very good indie that both you and your girlfriend might enjoy.

It is a series if you read the first and are interested in the others
Baby Shark

You might also enjoy Alistair MacLean. They might appear a little dated but I certainly re-read them. I don't think all are available on Kindle. I assume if some are available now, others will follow. Desmond Bagley is another one, I just checked and my favorite Flyaway is coming out on Kindle, however it says December 2019 - that must be a typo. If you do like what you see in product description, then keep and eye out for High Citadel . Another author along that line is Greg Iles and I believe all of his books are available on Kindle. Happy reading.

Thanks Angela.

I'd forgetten about MacLean! Read a few some years ago - might see if they're available on Kindle. Not heard of Desmond Bagley but will check him out too

Gary Ponzo's books about an FBI agent are extremely popular - A Touch of Deceit (Nick Bracco Series #1)

And I'd highly recommend this UK-based book: Where the Devil Can't Go

Thanks ladies - have downloaded Where the Devil Can't Go

Another one that someone else suggested was Vengence Wears Black. Just started reading it and enjoying it.

DG - Just took a 'look inside' Vengeance Wears Black, and it does look interesting, so I picked it up.
Thanks.

I've enjoyed Debora Geary's A Modern Witch (A Modern Witch Series: Book 1) series.

THEY DIE ALONE is a noir crime story set in 1934 Chicago, and it is published by a small independent press in the UK, written by a new author. Ross Duncan, the protagonist, is not a detective or policeman; he's a world-weary bank robber with a conscience. He is no saint, but he's trying to right things as he moves between rival mobsters and eludes the early FBI. There's a girl he wants to save, and partners he needs to satisfy. I'll warn you: this is a hardboiled, violent story, but has at its core a theme of redemption built around a Biblical passage that Ross Duncan stumbles upon as his partner lays dying.
