The Best Crime & Thriller Authors Part 2

This is Part Two of the favourite Authors.

More books that can be picked up and read in one or two sittings. I like good plots with plenty of twists and turns. It’s always good to be kept guessing right until the end. I buy new releases from these authors as soon as they get listed on Amazon.

Mark Billingham, (Amazon Author link here).

The Detective Inspector Tom Thorne series. Set in the UK, Thorne goes about his business catching villains and criminals. His books are always well written with realistic plotlines. A total of 15 books in the series from 2001 onwards.Full list on Wikipedia here.

Michael Connelly, (Amazon Author link here).

Harry Bosch series,┬áLincoln Lawyer series and others. Connelly is a prolific writer and all his books are an excellent read. The full list of 32 is here on Wikipedia. The first Harry Bosch book in 1991 was The Black Echo. We’ve followed him through his career in the LAPD to retirement and back into work. Dark Sacred Night featuring Bosch and the Renee Ballard character is due autumn 2018.

*Amazon Prime Video has released 3 seasons of the Bosch television series with Season 4 due in 2019 – link here. This is well worth watching, Season 1 scores 8.4 on IMDb.

Robert Crais, (Amazon Author link here).

Elvis Cole and Joe Pike series along with 4 stand-alone novels, which makes it 17 in total from 1987 onwards. Cole the private investigator and Pike his partner get on the case in Los Angeles California and you’re always guaranteed a thrilling fast-paced read.

Linwood Barclay, (Amazon Author link here).

There’s no central character that appears in every novel he’s written but he’s a master thriller writer. I did get irked when I came to the end of Broken Promise which turned out to be Part 1 of a trilogy. Because I then had to wait for the conclusion in books 2 and 3 of the Promise Falls trilogy to be published.

Lee Child, (Amazon Author link here).

The Jack Reacher Series, always a quality read about a retired military police officer. As he travels the USA with no baggage, no home and lots of principles. 22 books from 1997 onwards with Past Tense due late 2018
