All Sophie Hannah's books are fantastic.
Kay Scarpetta series by Patricia Cornwell.
Tom Thorne series by Mark Billingham.
Anything by Karen Rose and Katia Lief (lots of her books are available for as little as 49p at the moment)
Lisa Gardner and Tess Gerritsen are two to watch as well.

I recently read The Oligarch by G W Eccles. At last a thriller about Russia written by someone who, obviously, has actually been there! Whether in Moscow or Siberia, The Oligarch screams authenticity: a Russian President who stretched the rules to secure a third term of office, the murky world of oligarchs who will stop at nothing to maintain their wealth and influence, and the sinister behind-scenes tactics of the FSB. In weaving his complex plot, the author clearly understands the influences behind Russian political and business life today. In particular, I found the description of the remote and polluted Arctic mining town, where the main action of the thriller takes place, both harrowing and disturbing. An excellent read.The Oligarch: A Thriller

The Mike Walsh novels by J. D. Michael Phelps are exciting reads and police procedurals by a former cop. THE EXECUTION OF JUSTICE ("The Mike Walsh Detective Novels".) and The Jockey's Justice (The Mike Walsh Detective Novels)

In the Blood: A Genealogical Crime Mystery #1 (Jefferson Tayte) and To the Grave: A Genealogical Crime Mystery #2 (Jefferson Tayte) by Steve Robinson are well worth a read.

This is not a self promo like so many postings on this thread. These are books I have bought, read and enjoyed!

Have you tried Little Face? Sophie Hannah wrote it.

And The Missing is similar in that it's fast-paced and exciting and has a similar tone.

I'll soon be reading Hurting Distance and Before I Go to Sleep.

Yes - all of them and they are brilliant. Try Gregg Hurwitz, too.

This is the first time I joined in a forum. I came here looking for my next thriller. I usually go for the best seller ones but my friend recommended The Blake Curse. It's a debut novel by an unknown author and I decided to give it a go. It was good. See my review. I decided to explore first time authors. Any suggestions for some good thrillers?

If you like psycho thrillers/paranormal horror wrapped in a drama with lot's of action and twists and turns, you might like: The Wisdom Of Evil by Scarlet Black.

Hi SomethingBeautiful,

If you are interested in "family Thrillers" you also like to take a look at "Ruled by Fear" (Kerstin McNichol). On first impression it is domestic violence but going deeper into the story it is so much more. - Can't tell more otherwise I would spoil it. The story is full of twist and turns and was fun to read.
Hope you give it a try.

Hi! If you like psychological thriller, you can read "STILL MISSING" by Chevy Stevens. It's a great thriller! I couldn't put it down. I highly recommend to anyone. The story is incredible. Any comments?
