I love the above and also Martina Cole and Rachel Caine but could do with a new series to start reading. Have also recently read the beautiful Creatures and Mortal Instruments books and did like them but now I am running out of ideas on where to go next.

Anyone got any suggestions?

I've just finished the first book in a series by Katia Lief which reminded me a little of Karen Rose's style. The name of the first book is "You are Next".

Also, Lisa Gardner, Tess Gerritsen and Richard Montanari might be worth a look.

Just ordered the Katia Lief ones - they look like my sort of read - thanks

Mo Hayder?
Birdman is the first one.

Thanks everyone - I will give them a go. I hate running out of books to read and I'm sure the bloke in Waterstones thinks I am a bit of a weirdo when I go and ask grin

Have you read any Stuart MacBride? His books are crime thrillers, there's a series starting Logan Macrae and a couple of stand alone books.

I love them, mostly because they're set locally to me so I can picture the places in them exactly but they are excellent books.

Vanished was great,as was Chasing the Dead

Lin Anderson's Rhona McLeod series. Think the first one is Driftnet. Her wiki page suggests that these are being made into a TV series too.

If you like Martina Cole, Jessie Keane and some of Kimberly Chambers are similar

Alafair Burke writes about a NYPD female detective, she's very readable.
Chelsea Cains last book didn't get a British publusher,I was well pissed off.

Beverley Barton.

Patricia cornwell are a decent read.

Only early Patricia Cornwall, before she disappeared up her own arse grin.
Some Lynda La Plant are good and Val Mcdermid.

Agree re early Patricia Cornwall.

MR hall - jenny cooper series is good
Kerry wilkinson - Jessica Daniel series is alright too
Lee child - jack reacher series

Floggingmolly Sun 09-Feb-14 22:57:32

Tess Gerritsen?

bookishandblondish Sun 09-Feb-14 23:00:39

Kathryn Fox is good

I like author mark billingham's detective Thorne series, uk based. The first one is sleepyhead, think there are 11 in total, so would keep you going a while.

Definitely Tess Gerritsen - read from 'The Surgeon' onwards. They are great reads.

Also, maybe Lisa Gardner?

FarelyKnuts Sun 09-Feb-14 23:17:28

Tami Hoag is worth a read as well.

tiredandsadmum Sun 09-Feb-14 23:43:33

I like Jeffrey Deaver: Lincoln Rhyme

Also for light relief - JD Robb - Death series with Lt Eve Dallas

Also PJ Tracy
