Try Scottish CRime, Quintin Jardine's DEtective SKinner is brilliant, or BArbara NAdel's Inspector IScander ( set in IStanbul)

If you haven't yet read Lee Child, run, don't walk to your computer and start reading his Jack Reacher series. His "can't put down" thrillers are breathless and leave you itching to see what trouble Reacher finds himself in next.

You might want to look at Andy McDermott or Steven James. McDermott's books are archeology based, and James main character is an FBI inspector.

Patricia A Gray wrote several interesting psychological thrillers with a flavor similar to the tv series Dexter. Try starting with Ridder of Vermin.

Yes, Lee Child is a great choice. Jack Reacher series. I think that's the only character he's ever written about. Also, I just mentioned Gary Ponzo's Nick Bracco series on another thread. Well worth it. Also, has anyone mentioned Elmore Leonard? I know he's not a pure thriller writer, but they're like crime thrillers. Very good stuff. He's written maybe 50 books. Literally.

Please don't recommend your own book. It's against amazon policy and tends to anger posters.

Lee child's is on my short list of next authors to read thru.. U suggested starting at the beginning ... Offhand do u know the title of where I should start and is it a series of recurring character(s)?

Thanks for any assistance u can offer.

For a great, thrilling series try Robert McCammons Matthew Corbett books. The first is "Speaks the Nightbird" and he just published #4 "The Providence Rider" fantastic stuff written by a true blue storyteller.

Here are a few writers I like along with a few from above:

Alex Kava (series character FBI)
Brad Taylor (similar to Brad Thor -starting a series)
Directive 51 was an intersting sci-fi - and I found it engaging - not necessarily a thriller....but more mystery.
JT Ellison
Karin Slaughter

@M.Perque: The first Reacher book was The Killing Floor. Unless you really want to, Reacher is one series that does not necessarily need to be read in order, with one exception. You need to read 61 before you read Worth Dying For. While Child fills in Reacher's back story from time to time in the novels, that's all information that doesn't necessarily need to be in order. The Affair is a prequel, and the last one published so far, although there will be a new Reacher novel this fall.

I think starting with Killing Floor (Jack Reacher, No. 1) is a good idea. Yes there are many between this one and 61 hours that can be read in any order as mentioned above....but Killing Floor is an important start in my opinion.

Tanya French one of my favorite authors

Hi T.
Are you still in need of some suggestions??? Well, have you tried John Locke (there's a forum here with avid OOUs) beginning with *Lethal People* and there's Gary Ponzo's *A Touch of Deceit*. These two are indie authors entertaining fast paced mysteries at reasonable prices (under $3.00) for their work. Hope this helps~!~.

d leonard freeston's The Sixth Extinction is a great read.

I've got completely hooked on Jo Nesbo. Start from The Redbreast. I guarantee you won't be able to put them down!

@C Bradley = I loved Swan Song by McCammon.

Are the books you are referring to historical thrillers?

@ Cindy - I agree Nesbo is extremely good

Try Sabrina Simon's latest, "In The Stars", it's fast paced and very different than anything I've read lately. Let me know...
