Can anyone suggest good thrillers without all the swearing and graphic sex? Those always ruin an otherwise good story for me. I'd rather not have my mind drug through the gutter just to get a good story. Thanks!

Apologies for an earlier more appropriate MOA post. The Covenant of Genesis by Andy McDermott was a pretty good read and I would rate it a PG-13. Hope you like it.

Any of Joel Rosenberg's fiction, Oliver North, Colleen Coble, Angela Hunt, Davis Bunn or Jeanette Windle are just a few. I'm always looking for new authors without the swearing or sexual content, but love suspense or military thrillers with romance thrown in. Good luck.

Anything by Ted Dekker. He used to write pretty straight into the Christian thriller market. He's gone more mainstream, but still writes books acceptable to his original market, and retains a thread of Christian morality running through his books, if not frequently outright religious references.

I usually avoid Christian-market novelists like the plague -- pardon the pun. And I'm not much for soft airplane reads, either. But on a trip I bought The Bridge Collector, rather by accident of the blurb, since I'd never heard of Dekker. I couldn't put it down.

I don't use cursing in my life nor do I like to be around it. I don't want to read a book with it, there are plenty of good words to use. In today's world, anything goes sexually in the Edina and as a Christian I prefer to not read sexually explicit books.

In the last 15 years there have been great Christian authors writing good books that I enjoy. I don't read them exclusively, but they are in the majority of the books I choose. I have many favorite authors in suspense to romance and all genres in between.

Try Castle Cape by C.L. Withers, it's a fast paced thriller/mystery and once you start reading it you will find it hard to put down.

Try anything by Betsy Brannon Green. She is cleaver, always clean and there is a bit of humor thrown in at times. Every now and again she gets a bit predictable, but I really like her. Also, have you tried the Alchemist series by Michael Scott LOVE IT He incorporates different mythical gods from different cultures of times - again LOVE IT

I hear you. I'm not a big fan of either of those things, either in what I'm reading or in what I'm writing.

Most of the more recent stuff by Dean Koontz is very light on cursing and explicit sex. You might also try the Empire series by Orson Scott Card (usually he's a sci-fi guy, but he does step into thriller mode from time to time).

Hope this helps. Enjoy!

John Grisham comes to mind if you like legal thrillers. I once heard him say that he tries to write books that people would not be embarrassed to recommend to others. I also prefer to read clean thrillers and as an action-adventure/thriller author, I keep that in mind as I'm writing as well.

Thanks, everyone, for your input. I am a Christian and do enjoy books by Christian authors, but do not wish to limit myself to that alone. Keep the suggestions coming, please!
