Thought "Fault Line" was outstanding, everything i've read of Goddard has been exceptional. His next novel is published at the start of july , "Ways of the World".

Linwood Barclay is a new name to me but, based on your comments, I'll give him a try.

Sou'Wester - yes I read this recently too and endorse your comments although I would concur that the ending was perhaps a little tame compared to some of his other offerings. Mind you I've yet to read a Goddard which I didn't enjoy. Sure I've mentioned this before but just in case - although the settings are quite different - Linwood Barclay's plotting is every bit as complex as Goddard. The Accident is a good example. Not sure if this is the right place but my nomination for the most underrated crime writer might be Sally Spencer(aka Alan Rustage). Have read several of the consistently enjoyable Charlie Woodend series and recently tried Blackstone and the Fire Bug (Severn House Large Print) part of an equally entertaining Edwardian/Victorian series...

thanks for a laugh... amazon have a lot to answer for letting this nonsensical rubbish be published!

It's always nice when you like a book by someone with the same surname as yours, but to be fair I did check the look inside.

"...his angry face marbled with a livid red crazing..."?

"...his blancmange body rustling with the cascade of pale blue silk..."?

"...a hooked forefinger quivered over an open page like a hovering kestrel..."?

Thank you, I pass. Maybe someone else will like it... (or will manage to read it for starters)

The Prisoner's Dilemma Try this I just finished it and it was a gripping read! I hope you like it.

Sou'Wester says:
Have just finished Robert Goddard's latest book "Fault Line" which I think shows something of a return to form by this writer. If I'm really picky, the end didn't quite have the "I didn't see that coming" panache of some of Goddard's earlier works, but it was still an engrossing and well written adventure. Although there's some violence and the odd murder or two, it makes a pleasant change to read a thriller that doesn't rely on buckets of gore and sex-mad serial killers as a substitute for decent plotting.

I'd recommend Crimson Zero. Very great spy thriller that takes place pretty much all over the world. It's very well written and it's also the writer's debut novel.

I love Messiah by Boris Starling, and The Calling by Neil Cross. Very gritty!
