I really love
Stephen King,
Dean Koontz,
John Saul,
James Patterson, and
J.A. Jance,
but I've pretty much read all their books.
You guys know of any other authors I might like?
Thanks, Suzi

You might like Carol O'Connell
Linda Fairstein
Robert Crais (his Joe Pike or stand alone possibly more than the Elvis Cole ones, but those are good too.)
Lee Childs
David McAfee

Try JA Konrath - horror Origin and he has a mystery series I just love Whiskey Sour very reasonable priced
Douglas Preston/Lincoln Child - start with Relic
I've heard really good things about Joe Hill Heart-Shaped Box (he's Stephen King's son)
John Sandford - Rules of Prey

J Carson Black has been creating quite a stir with her thrillers and has been signed by Amazons new Imprint.

I'm gonna recommend 'Cemetery Girl' by David Bell. It's a kidnapping thriller that reads quick and has a thrilling plot with quite a few twists. Bell's movie trailer can be watched here:

Hi Suzi,

I highly recommend Brandi Lynn Ryder author of "In Malice, Quite Close"

She's amazingly talented -- I don't think you'll be disappointed!

I also really love King and some of the Koontz and Saul. You might try Robert McCammon - perhaps his novel Boy's Life. He wrote quite a few in the 80s and then disappeared for a time. Seems he may be on the radar again.

Try Richard Bard. He has a new thriller out called BRAINRUSH and he's doing a promotion where if you buy his book you get two for free. It was one of the best thrillers I've read in a long time.

Read Matthew Bracken's excellent series, if you really want some action to think about.

Richard Doetsch's new thriller, The Thirteenth Hour is worth checking out. Unique and different plot and snapped up by Universal films quite quickly.

He started following me and on twitter the other day (as did John Locke) , so maybe he'll do me the honour of repaying the favour and recommending my books on here :)

try king's son. also try konrath, crouch and their associates.
read free short stories or novels by dan dillard or tom lichtenberg. both can be hard or easy to read but still freaky.

I recommend Mark D. DiRienzo and his book The Fisherman (Full disclosure, that's me)
Also check out Patrick Lee (The Breech)

I just finished reading COLD AS ICE by Angela Brown. I thought it was a great read. I started with the free sample and was hooked. Bought the kindle version so I could have it immediately and couldn't stop reading until I finished the book. Most engaging book I've read in a long time. Just be warned that the laundry and yardwork will have to wait while you read this thriller. I can't wait for another book by this author. Anyone know if she has any other books in the works?
