Lets hear some good authors that belong on this thread!

My favorites are Joseph Finder (high crimes=WOW), Harlan Coben (stand-alones), Robert Crais, Linwood Barclay, Jeffery Deaver, Michael Connelly, and my favorites of all time, PRESTON/CHILD!

This thread is not to promote your new novel, so please stay away, there is a place for that and this is not it!

Thanks!!

Check out Steve Berry's The Alexandria Link. Fast plot, some good twists and a bit of historical-ness to it as well.

James Rollins, Steve Berry, Preston & Child, Cussler, and Andy McDermott are good thriller writers. If you like crime novels Stuart MacBride, Chris Carter, Mark Billingham, are all good.

I would recommend Tess Gerritsen's Rizzol i& Isles series, Zoe Sharp's Charlie Fox and of course, anything from T. Jefferson Parker.
Happy reading

I know of a really good paranormal thriller, it is called "Of Good and Evil" by Gerald G. Griffin. Definitely has a strong plot and really good twists, Of Good and Evil

First Lady Blues
Most recently, I liked "First Lady Blues" by Riley James. I was able to get a free download of the opening chapter at the author's website, which got me hooked on the story. My all time favorite is Michael Connelly, the early Harry Bosch series, probably the best detective novel stories of the genre.

Grant, the funny thing is, I just finished your book called No Cry for Help, I ordered it through amazon, because I couldn't find it at any stores in the U.S. I liked it, it was a great book, I find it crazy that you actually posted on my thread! Loved the book, I will be reading Switch next.

Thanks, Breeze, I really appreciate that. (For some reason my post above has been deleted by Amazon - wonder what I did wrong?) It has definitely been tough getting the books into stores. I have a new one that is making the rounds now, and I'm hoping a new publisher might try and promote it more.
Cheers,
Grant

I like this thread. My favourite novels with superb plot include, THE BIG SLEEP, by Raymond Chandler, SILENCE OF THE LAMBS by Thomas Harris, LINCOLN LAWYER by Michael Connelly, and just today I read a real nice one SPY HUNT IN DIXIE by Max Connelly. The author randomly tweeted me with a free copy.
Keep this post up with really good suggestions, not book spams.
