Brighton Rock is a classic thriller.

Travels with my Aunt & Our Man in Havana are both v funny.

I also really enjoyed The End of the Affair.

Thank you - I will definitely try him. Any that really stood out for you for me to try first?

The thing I find with William Boyd (I love him), is that there's so much variety in his writing and his style seems to me to change from one novel to the next.

Restless and Waiting for Sunrise were very well written thrillers and (I would say), quite different to A Good Man in Africa which is more literary fiction.

Maybe try some Graham Greene? Like William Boyd, I've haven't read any that I didn't like.

What else will I like?
I very much enjoyed Restless, Waiting for Sunrise and (to a lesser extent) Ordinary Thunderstorms.
Currently enjoying Good Man in Africa.

Any ideas?
