I have read all novels of Vince Flynn and Daniel Silve, and need recommendations for another author like them.
Thank you.

Robert F Testa...six mystery novels. Great!

Lee Child (Jack Reacher novels)----T Jefferson Parker (Charlie Hood and other novels)----Randy Wayne White (Doc Ford novels)----Robert Crais (Elvis Cole/Joe Pike). Try any/all of the above---great books, all of them.

Thank you so much for these suggestions. I'll try them all.

Try Vince Flynn or James Rollins (Rollins isn't quite the same but real good), Victor O'Reilly (older books not available on Kindle), Ben Coe or Michael Walsh. I know there are others, but I am not near my library at the moment.

Thanks so much. The search had gotten tiring. So many 'almosts' that don't quite make the standard of Daniel Silva. You have given me good leads.

Try the first three of Andrew Britton's Ryan Kealey series. The fourth book was finished after Britton passed away and I didn't find it anywhere near as good. The ghost writer just didn't have the same feel for the Kealey character.

Another author you might look at is James W. Huston. Not as good as Flynn, but political thrillers just the same and they're not bad.

Hi Susan---I have read Vince Flynn, though not Daniel Silva (so thanks for that), and like Lee Child's Reacher and R.Wayne White's Doc Ford even better than Flynn. Another good one is Nelson DeMille, especially his John Corey thrillers---start with Plum Island. Hope you enjoy these suggestions.

You might consider Alex Berenson. He's a great writer, and his books are exciting and suspenseful.

Thanks, Rob. I'll check these out. You are going to love Daniel Silva. He is far and away the best. I like De Mille too.

Try Sharon Geyer's The Samson Option, and the sequel, The Time of Jacob's Trouble.

I recently found a good book free (not sure if it still is) called The Government: Dark Days. The author was Joseph Storm, and it was a really good read in the genre of Flynn.

Some similar authors to try would be Alex Berenson, Kyle Mills, Olen Steinhauer or Andrew Britton.

Alex Berenson and Kyle Mills (Fade) I'd agree. Also Tom Cain's Samuel Carver character, the first couple are excellent. Of course Frederick Forsyth and Robert Ludlum. I've also written a couple of Flynn/Silva style thrillers - Critical Error in particular features a CIA and Mossad agent and is a sort of amalgamation of both! Whether they're up to Flynn/Silva I'll leave to the reader to decide.

Some folks like Steve Berry. James Rollins promotes him. I confess I don't find his composition of the highest standard.

I think Brad Thor's Scot Harvath is up there with Flynn's Mitch Rapp. Highly recommend. A few what I consider the "team" type novels as opposed to Mitch Rapp or Scot Harvath, are the Deep Black series by Stephen Coonts (except when they killed off a main character in the middle of the series), and the Oregon Files by Clive Cussler. Almost forgot! HUNTER: A Thriller (A Dylan Hunter Thriller) by Robert Bidinotto could end up as great as the other two! He is influenced by Thor and Flynn, you won't miss the shout out that's for sure! On top of that it's one of the free books for Prime members!

Thanks for the recommendations. Didn't know about Andrew Britton. Sorry to hear he passed away so young.

I really liked Amsterdam 2012, which had a lot of the same themes and action of a Vince Flynn novel but felt much more real, as if it could really happen.

Brian Haig has a great series. Also, Jack Coughlin has a great sniper series. Suzanne Brockman has a SEAL team series that is good. Jason Elam wrote a series football/thriller. Elam's books are Christian based but really good- you must read in order!!!

I second Alex Berenson & Brad Thor and Brian Haig.
I also like Christopher Reich & Stephen Hunter.
I also enjoyed Gayle Lynds and the two books (so far) written by Ben Coes.
John Birmingham also has written a couple of good books-starting with Without Warning, it is a trilogy and I am waiting for release of the 3rd in that trilogy.

Thanks for your help. I have discovered and like Berenson and Ben Coes. Brad Thor not so much.
Your suggestions save search time.
