You might be interested in "The Double Game" by, I believe, Dan? Fesperman. Mr. Fesperman has written a number of cold war based spy stories. However, "The Double Game" was written about someone who is using cold war novels, i.e., Greene and LeCarre, etc. to lead the hero across Europe to solve a question of treason. Great book. At least take a look at it.

@Angela - No I haven't read the authors you mention - but I'll have a look.

I bought the Quinnell book because my paperback one is pretty tattered by now.

Thanks for the tips. I look forward to discovering those authors. I recently enjoyed reading The Prophet by Michael Koryta and am now working my way through his Lincoln Perry books.

Don't feel bad; I'm in the same boat. To everyone Thanks for a lot of good authors to check out! I'm a newbie to crime thriller's James Patterson was my first! I'm looking to J. Sandford and J.Newborn next.

Brandon, I also like Joseph Finder and recently finished reading his book "Paranoia." I'm an author and will be publishing a thriller (with plenty of plot twists) in 2013. It's currently in editing but I'm starting pre-publicity to generate reviews. So if you'd like to be one of the first to read it, I can send you more information.

I would love for you to send me a copy

Are you supposed to do this on this site?

Good point Patricia. I'm not trying to sell copies here but would appreciate reader feedback from people who like Thrillers. I plan to publish this through Create Space so in 2013 it would eventually be relevant to this discussion, but you're right there are other message boards for this sort of thing.

Hi Brandon - It's been quite a while since I've posted on the thriller forum but I read, (it was a recommendation)

The 7th Woman (Nico Sirsky, Chief of Police)

@Brandon and JD Anderson - I want to recommend

Injured Reserves

It is powerful and evocative.
I know that you both appreciate a good story - and this is compelling/mesmerising.
Please check out the sample at least.

Cphe: I have put it on my list. Thanks.

Hi JD - glad to hear it - not enough superlatives to describe it.

How have you been?

Just finished Bruce DeSilva's second Mulligan book, Cliff Walk. The first one, Rogue Island, won an Edgar for best first novel. Neither is great, but both are very readable--good enough that I look forward to another one. Yes, they are about Little Rhody, its corruption, characters and quirks.

I just finished Frank Nappi's Nobody Has To Know -- many twists and turns and an explosive, never saw it coming ending...Gone Girl is also well worth it!

I just finished "House of Evidence by Ingolfsson. It takes place in Iceland and is a really exciting story with an ending you don't see coming until the last twenty five pages or so. It is kind of like "The Phantom of the Rue Morgue" in that two men are killed, twenty years apart, by the same gun, but no gun was ever found and there doesn't seem to be any way for the second killer to have gotten into the house or away. Really good.

Cphe: I've been doing well. How about yourself? Getting ready to enjoy your summer?

@Paul Farrar: Thanks for the update on DeSilva. I read and enjoyed Rouge Island and will certainly look for Cliff Walk.

@JD - I have been well lately Thank You.

It has started to heat up over here - very muggy with a few afternoon thunderstorms that don't do anything to cut the heat - just make it more humid and uncomfortable.

@Patricia, Speaking of Scandi thrillers I not long ago finished

The Ice Cage - A Scandinavian Crime Thriller set in the Nordic Winter (The Baltic Trilogy)

Pretty good IMO - I was lucky enough to get it for free at the time - Wonderful description of the ice, cold and Scandinavian lifestyle
