I have just read Death List by Paul Johnston and really enjoyed this - although I didn't think I would. But somehow it grabbed me from the start - I would certainly recommend it as an excellent read that doesn't drag itself out.

Anything by Fred Vargas. I'm reading Company of Liars by Karen Maitland at the moment. Although not a thriller an excellent read and very suspensful. Much better written than the current Swedish (tattoo decorated) pot-boilers.

I'm reading The 50/50 Killer by Steve Mosby at the moment. I like it, it gripped me from the start, you need a strong stomach at some parts though!

I recently read 'Velocity' by Dean Koontz. My first Koontz novel and I really enjoyed it and got through it very quickly. Give it a try and if you like his style there are plenty more of his out there.

LEP says:
Try Lee Child's, Jack Reacher books. Harlan Corbin, James Patterson, Alex Kava, Richard North Patterson (better than John Grisham - start with Silent Witness).

Also, click on Customer Communities above left and then on Thrillers. It will come up with a list of "Tagged" books that you can scroll through (an arrow will eventually come up to scroll through the listing).

Anything by Lee Child (Jack Reacher), Mark Billingham (D.I. Tom Thorne), Martin Cruz Smith (the Arkady Renko series), Robert Crais (the Elvis Cole / Joe Pike series or his stand-alone ones). Michael Marshall's 'The Straw Men' (and the sequels) are real page-turners. I would also recommend anything by James Ellroy and James Lee Burke -not thrillers strictly speaking, but they pack a punch. Plus Graham Hurley's Joe Faraday books are more police procedurals but they're really well written and engrossing.

Try Stuart Macbride,the dexter series or Faye Kellerman

Hi M
Try De Marco Empire by J Lou McCartney, its a modern day edge of the seat mafia style thriller. There are lots of twists and turns that will make your head spin - I just couldn't put it down. Oh, and the short chapters were a big plus!

Frik Larssen says:
Try Of Vicars and Tarts, Sonja Bigg. Stunning debut; sad, urban, earthy, gritty, full of intrigue...hilarious. Murder in a contemporary setting. But also intelligent and perceptive about human faults and very philosophical. Read it twice and can't wait for her next one. 5* reviews on Amazon.

Hi. Forgive me for punting my own book. The Spy Who Belonged to Glasgow is a thriller set in Glasgow during the Second World War. It has a few twists and I don't think that the plot is too far-fetched. It is based on the true fact that I discovered a German language copy of Mein Kampf in an old house that my family had moved into in 1964. I began to image that a German spy had been living there so developed what might have been his (or her) story.......Happy reading. Michael

Line of Vision by David Ellis. An obvious murder case turns into a complicated trial while the accused, thankfully out on bail, tries to manipulate the outcome.

Hull Zero Three by Greg Bear. An intelligent and intricately plotted scifi thriller.

The Glass Rainbow by James Lee Burke. Dave Robicheaux investigates the disappearance of a young woman who might be the victim of a serial killer.

For a murder/mystery novel with a quirky sense of humour try "Snap Judgement" by EJ Smith (Kindle). Murdered expat on Greek Island, mad wild-goose chase to New York and London . . . dark secrets uncovered . . . . see what you think . . .
