How about David Baldacci's Camel Club Series featuring former CIA assassin Oliver Stone AKA John Carr.

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 4, 2010 8:58:02 AM PST about the Parker series written by Donald Westlake under the pen-name Richard Stark? Or, there is a very good Australian author, also hard-boiled, Garry Disher...his early titles about another character, also called Parker (just a coincidence).

Stephen Hunter's Bob Lee Swagger & Earl Swagger novels. "Point of Impact" & "Pale Horse Coming" are particular favorites, but I enjoyed all of them.

Hidden Empire by Orson Scott Card had lots of butt kicking. :-) There is a hint of sci-fi, only in the fact that the bad guys have a bit of a futuristic fighting machine, but otherwise, it's firmly grounded in reality, although it reads like it could be a few years in the future.

As a newcomer to Lee Childs and the Jack Reacher series I'm wondering whether to read them in the order they were written and so start with Killing Floor or read the prequels first - ie The Enemy, then The Affair?
Having read every book Vince Flynn has written if I was starting the Mitch Rapp series now I'd start with the recently written prequels first....

Wow, this book sounds incredible. It's a dystopian military spy novel in the tradition of Cussler, Child, McDermott, Flynn, DeMille, and Silva with no vulgar language. I'm off to buy it right away!

Seriously, stop spamming this book over multiple threads. It's annoying and won't lead to more sales.

Not a bad strategy but shouldn't make much difference. Avoid the last book in the series, A Wanted Man, which is terribly disappointing.

Plausibility is never a strong point in the Reacher novels but he's such a fascinating character that you'll love him anyway.
