    I'm quite an avid reader, and read alot of:

    Richard Laymon
    Dean Koontz
    Jonathan Kellerman
    Linwood Barclay
    Karin Slaughter

    Can you guys suggest any other authors to try?

    clive barker
    val mcdermid
    peter james
    michael crichton
    jeffrey deaver
    michael marshall smith
    james herbert

    love James Herbert too

    i also enjoyed the necroscope series by brian lumley

    tried stephen king? he's quite similar to laymon and koontz.....
    I'm just amazed you've heard of laymon! he's not very big over here and noone i've ever spoken to has had any idea who he is!!

    have all of laymon's books, it's a real shame that he died when he did... I thought his writing was actually getting even better the last few books before his death.

    I was lucky enough to get hold of a signed copy of one of his books, pity I couldn't have met the great man himself!

    I picked up this book and second part in a charity shop years ago and really enjoyed it, I'm normally a stephen king fan so was a nice change

    As someone has already pointed out, Jeffery Deaver.

    I would also recommend:

    Kathy Reichs
    Michael Connolly
    Jo Nesbo
    Stieg Larsson
    CJ Sanson

    Hope you enjoy these.
