The Twelve by Stuart Neville; Bad Catholics by James Green; anything by Stuart MacBride; The Coroner by MR Hall; The Cleaner by Brett Battles. If female, try Kate Mosse, Tess Gerritsen & SJ Bolton

Try Sam Millar's pre-Kane books (The Redemption Factory, et al).

I also read Stieg Larsson trilogy. If you manage to find a book as good as! please share.

I loved the Steig Larsson books too.
From a tension point of view, you might enjoy some of Val McDermid's earlier books. I loved 'The Mermaid's Singing'

If your fed up reading the same old thing try this:-
Fighting for the French Foreign Legion: Memoirs of a Scottish Legionnaire

Try reading some kids stuff for a change. It's got far more action and doesn't mess about gettign in to the story in the way a lot of adult stuff does. I enjoyed the Larrsson books too. Try the Young Bond books, Robert Muchamore's series and Lari Don's First Aid. They make a refreshing change.

Why the change from Teacher Smith - as if we didn't know.
For information: Teacher Smith and B Pova are the same person, most probably Diane Griffith - the "author" of the 2 books plugged in this discussion!

This forum can be fun. Someone asks for some reason in biography for Scandinavian crime books; in reply come recommendations for children's books, lots of advertising, a restatement of original question, and an exposee.

Jo Nesbo, and Yrsa Sigurdardottir are both authors of cold climate police procedurals.

Imo, worth reading.

also try Mo Hayder: her books are based in the UK West Country, and they are very good.

Hello, I have just put my book on Kindle, I am an unknown as you put it but I don't know about a Joe Blogs. I have written about my, I feel exciting time in the Infantry (Cheshire Regiment), all post 1970. It included my time in Northern Ireland, Rhodesia and Bosnia etc. I have received good feedback from everyone but it would be nice to get some from someone who doesn't know me. Thanks for your time anyway, regards Roy.Banwell, "The Long Journey".

Try this short novel Live by the Knife (S.P.Y Files); the first in an epic series of thrilling and entertaining novels about a young spy, fighting for her country, while keeping her identity a secret from everyone around her. It had a little of everything in it, Romance, Action, teenage journeys, and a fun narrative by the attitude-fueled spy.

Primarily a young adult novel, but apparently many adults are also finding it enjoyable as well!! :) Enjoy
