If you'd like to try a UK based 'Scenes of Crime' (i.e CSI) novel with a strong female lead character, perhaps my book Can of Worms might work for you?

If you are an avid reader like me, I like to start with the first boof written by an author and make my way through by date of publication. The earliest Jo Nesbo books have not been translated but those that have been are a good read. The first two are a little slow but then the pace really takes off. I agree about Cornwell but Reichs has also gone off at a tagent so like you have been looking around. Jo fits my bill

Jo Nesbo 'The Snowman'. Norwegian crime write. I have enjoyed a few of his books, but particularly this one. I also enjoy the Wallander series. Happy reading!

Hi Scully
I have recently started reading crime/medical thrillers and am absolutely addicted to Karen Rose.
Although each of her stories has a different protagonist, leading characters from her previous books keep popping up so you keep up with what they've all been up to.

Her books are fast paced and keep you on the edge of your seat but also has an underlying love story in each of them. I found them unputdownable and cant wait to read what she brings out next

Hi Scully, as previous posters have recommended, the Jo Nesbo books are fantastic. I have also really enjoyed Jeff Abbotts books, his earlier stuff is ok but his 4 stand alone novels, Panic, Run, Fear and Trust Me are excellent as are his two recent books Adrenaline and The Last Minute.

Not to promote a place, but have you considered Kindle Nation Daily? I'm finding more books to read there than I know what to do with?

If you like crime you might like Henning Mankel. I've just started reading one of his first books, and it's really good.

Great reviews - great book - WHo is Sarah Lawson by K.J.Rabane

Hi Scully!
Just a suggestion... we write crime fiction from the heart and the head of people with 47yrs of police experience. Bob took charge of murder enquiries and serious crime as well as being a hostage negotiator. We don't write about actual cases but he has seen it all more times than he would care to recall and he will never forget the scenes... The main characters are loosely based on us - you get correct police procedural but also the feelings of the man in charge and his partner. 'Deadly Focus' is the first in the series with many 5* reviews http://www.amazon.com/Deadly-Focus-Jack-Dylan-ebook/dp/B004Z1FP2S. 'Consequences' is to be released offically on the 19th March but is live now on Amazon http://www.amazon.com/Consequences-R-C-Bridgestock/dp/1907565167/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1330169387&sr=1-1

It's already received a 5* review and they are both on Amazon.co.uk too. Deadly Focus is 77p on Kindle.
If you want to know anymore about us you can read more @ www.rcbridgestock.com .
Kind regards,
Carol :)

Please don't self promote outside the dedicated "Meet Our Authors" forum; it's not permitted and Amazon may send guilty writers to the naughty step.
