I really enjoyed The Five on sky and am looking for a new book for my kindle.

Which of his books would be a good starting point? I don't mind if it's a stand alone or the start of a series.

His later books are better, early ones noticeably not as good.

The Myron books are a series and he has a lot of stand alone ones too.
Imo you cant go wrong with any of them.

I would start with Myron

I love the stand alone books, Myron gets annoying, and you should really read them in order. His mate Wyn seriously bugs me.

My favorite writer - read Gone For Good, I love it.

Stand alone books are great, also Myron Bolitar books are decent although I've not been as keen on the latest ones as I was on the ones in the mid-2000s.

I've got most of his books. I've just finished 'Fool me once'. Really good, didn't want to put it down and was gutted when I finished it.

I read The Woods and enjoyed it - I've been reading to read more to see what they're like.

Also just finished Fool Me Once, my first HC & enjoyed it.

<posted too soon> was a bit short/quick though, but that might be a good point for some readers.

Gone for Good was where I started and I loved it. The Myron books are great, think Drop Shot is first but I may be wrong.

No second chance and Just One Look also very good.
