Hi, I am looking for US based crime / thriller recommendations as I have exhausted my usual suspects catalogue. I am an avid reader of Coben, Connelly, Deaver, Cornwell, Patterson, Gross & Barclay. I prefer fast paced reads with twists you don't see coming and less detail on the gore.
Any recommendations are appreciated, thanks.

Its been out for a while but have you read "Serial" by N E castle? I read it a while ago and enjoyed it immensely. Set in and around Worester, MA. Fits most of your other criteria as well.
Serial

K. Gibson says:
James Lee Burke and his Dave Robicheaux books are a reasonable read. Some would say a good read.

With K.Gibson on the James Lee Burke, his Dave Robicheaux books, especially the early ones, are genius. "A Stained White Radiance" and "Black Cherry Blues" are favourites. Robert Crais also good, the Cole and Pike series.

Sounds very good...sadly not on Kindle. But I love a real book so I'm going to give it a go!
Anything else? I feel like I've run out of good books!!!!

Just finished Michael Connelly's The Fifth Witness. Good read in the Lincoln Lawyer series.

Anything by David Baldacci is usually good. If you like Patterson, you'll probably enjoy Baldacci.

You could try A Plague of Dissent, if you like Patterson and Baldacci you will like it

try Previous Time Lucky by Chris Robb, fast moving action thriller set in Boston, then the chase leads to a wilderness area in one of the state parks. I really enjoyed it - half way through the follow up Previous time served. Set in San Francisco and Montana. both 77p at the moment although I paid more!!

Try, "The Mayor of Lexington Avenue" By James Sheehan. A great debut novel which was in my recommendations for a long time, before i actually bought it, and i am so glad that i did. The 2nd book "The Law Of Second Chances" just as good and to top it off a new release coming in Feb '13
Also Mark Giminez, or Brian Haig who seems to be off the mainstream radar but has done some fabulous novels.
