Have you tried Linwood Barclay? I enjoy those. And there's a series of books by Chelsea Cain about a female serial killer that's really good too...

From the last couple of years the big ones were 'I Am Pilgrim' & 'The Girl On The Train' - both worth a read.

Bit of a guilty pleasure, but I also liked the D I Grace series by M.J. Arlidge.

Cheers for the info so far - I enjoyed Girl on the Train!

john connolly, his earlier books are a good read imo.
#7
John Grisham

I was an avid Lee Child - Reacher reader but got fed up too with the strict formularity of the series. At the minute I'm reading this - it's riveting
Callum Doyle novel by David Jackson
#9
Another vote for John Grisham, also ;

Frederick Forsyth, Jack Higgins, Stephen Leather..
#10
The Talented Mr. Ripley
Ripley Under Ground
Ripley's Game
#11
Agatha Christie
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (Sherlock Holmes)
#12
Karin Slaughter. Start with Blindsighted (Grant County series). The books are a little graphic so be warned if you are easily offended!
#13
Bone Collector. Try some Scandinavian thrillers by Arnaldur Indridason a Detective Erlendur is interesting. Maj Sjöwall and Per Wahlöö are very good. Jonathan Kellerman and Faye Kellerman are also very readable.

I read one of hers on holiday last year and really enjoyed it. think it was "Criminal"
#15
Reacher, Rapp, Rubbish...

Prefer Elvis Cole but Harry Bosch is probably the best...

IMHO of course, choice is the winner in this category

Simon Kernick

Michael Connelly. Absolutely great reads, start with The Poet if possible, but they're all good.
Jeffrey Deaver, wrote the Lincoln Rhyme series, but lots more as well
David Baldacci, my personal favourite, the new Amos Decker set is really good.

Enjoy your hols.

Wish he would write faster, too long between books. :(
