Sad to say, you have made an excellent recommendation but downvoting indicates you may be taken for a shill... ;)
Also sad to say Charlie Mortdecai's not available for Kindle, darn it.

Yeah, it's too bad George has the 'down votes'. Nobody stops to think about the logic, mostly lack thereof, of shilling a series that's 11 years old.

I discovered Jo Nesbro several months ago & think his Harry Hole (thanks for pronunciation) series are very good. I have pre-ordered his next book that's how much I like his work.

I think his books, especially those two, are marvelous,too. What other books/authors would you suggest?

Paul Farrar says:
Irene, perhaps old hat, but:
Jack Taylor series by Ken Bruen...Irish alcoholic ex-Gard; pretty dark, but well written.
Rebus series by Ian Rankin...Scottish cop; one of my favorites
Harry Bosch series by Michael Connelly...LA cop; my other fave
Michael Forsythe "Dead" trilogy by Adrian McKinty...too bad there are just the 3

I second all Paul Farrar's suggestions, and also if you're interested in another brooding Scandinavian cop (well, actually Icelandic) would also recommend Detective Erlendur:

Jar City: A Reykjavík Thriller by Arnaldur Indridason is the first in this series.

Thanks to both Paul Farrar and Miss Mitford for the suggestions.

Well I hope the editing/attribution in your book is a lot better than this, Roy. Cause it looks like you're just talking about yourself. In either case, self-promotion is not allowed in this forum.

I've become a Jo Nesbo addict. Just finished The Devil's Star and now ready for the next. The problem is that anything else you read just falls short of his standard!

Paul Farrar says:
Cindy, have you read Ian Rankin's Rebus series? Adrian McKinty's "Dead" trilogy? Ken Bruen's Jack Taylor series? If not, you might give them a try--imo, they're all well written with good plot and characterization.

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 27, 2012 10:40:25 AM PDT
Hi Paul,
I meant to point out the other day - Michael Forsythe also makes an extended 'guest appearance' in McKinty's "Falling Glass," he's not the lead, though, but I liked the book a lot. Looks like that one's not due in the US until October (I know he had US publishing issues); I got my copy from the UK.

Also, in case you haven't already, you should check out his blog - it's very funny/interesting.

Paul Farrar says:
Miss M...will definitely check out both. Thanks.

If you like David Rosenfelt's Andy Carpenter series, you could also try Sheldon Siegel's series - legal thrillers with the team of Mike Daley and Rosie Fernandez. Quick reads, good story lines with a bit of humor thrown in from time to time.

I've just finished "Still Missing". Wow! This book is great. Can you suggest me another thriller like this?

I love Harry Boach...We have all of the books in this series, and am pre-ordering the new one out soon. I am also a huge FAN of Jack Reacher books by Lee Child.

Thomas Perry is my favorite in this genre. The Butcher's Boy and Death Benefits are two that I really recommend.

And Sleeping Dogs is another winner!!

The best thriller I have ever read: stray into darkness by Terence byford. Not normally into thrillers, but I couldn't put it down
