Have you read David Wiltse? Several of his novels feature the FBI.

Check out Cody McFadyen's thrillers. Starting with Shadow Man, Face of Death, Darker Side and Abandoned. They all follow a main character - Smokey Barrett. Shadow Man hooked me!!!

Another author that came to mind, Paul Lindsay, is an ex FBI agent. If I recall his novels, he writes with the same sense of humor and irreverence that Joseph Wambaugh used when writing about the LAPD.

You just spammed nine different threads in this forum in the last few minutes.
That's just pathetic.

Well, I've certainly enjoyed ALEX KAVA. She writes a series with a strong female FBI protagonist. Interestingly, she doesn't write romantic suspense - it's definately thriller genre. Alex Kava Bundle I added a link to a bundle of her books - good pricing. But let us know who you've read so we don't suggest the same ones. And I'm liking all the suggestions. New writer's for me to check out. Thanks.

You could try some of the Quincy/Rainie books by Lisa Gardner. The Perfect Husband (Quincy / Rainie) She also does the DD Warren books, but those are not FBI, they are Boston PD

Thomas Harris's Red Dragon and Silence of the Lambs. Though they're first thought of as "serial killer" novels they are deeply rooted in the culture and methods of the F.B.I. especially the Behavioral Science division. Tons of research into forensics and training procedures. Paved the way for CSI, Criminal Minds, Bones, etc. Jack Crawford's character is based of John Douglass who was the real head of the BS division. He did a commentary for the Silence DVD.
John Grisham's The Firm and The Pelican Brief feature a fictional FBI director but I don't consider him a very good author. James Ellroy's American Tabloid explores the FBI's connections to the Kennedy Assassination in a fictional narrative. It's the first book in a trilogy. Libra by Don Delilo may have the FBI show up as he retells Oswald's life and career.

I recently read "Priceless: How I went Undercover to Rescue the World's Stolen Treasures," which is the true story of the FBI agent who founded the Art Crimes Division. It's a great read; very fast paced and quite informative as well.

The Aloysius Pendergast character in several novels by Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child is "technically" in the FBI, though not exactly conventional.

I would recommend the FBI trilogy by Cynthia Eden.
Deadly Fear
Deadly Heat
Deadly Lies
These books all deal with very creepy "monsters", and the FBI elite, serial services division, who track them down.
Each book focuses on a particular couple of agents, and yes, there is romance involved between them. However, their relationship does NOT over shadow the real gruesome, graphic, and creepy bad guys in each story.
I loved all three.
Don't be put off just because this author writes paranormal romance books also, because these books are awesome!!!

Neither of these are fiction, but "J. Edgar" and "Donnie Brasco" are both great FBI stories (both are also movies, and good movies at that). "J. Edgar" is about the founder of the FBI, a very important and very disturbed man. "Donnie Brasco" is about the FBI agent who fully infiltrated the Bonnano Crime Family and was about to be "made" into the mafia.
