I like Martina Cole, Kimberley Chambers and Mandasue Heller style books but have read them all now. Can any one recommend any good books?

Sounds like your book? If this is the case self promo is not allowed in these threads, only in the MOA Forum. In any case it sounds nothing like the kind of book asked for in the OP.

Just of the top of my head - Shantaram by Gregory Davvid Roberts. The Hour I First Believed by Wally Lamb. A Wedding in December by Anita Shreve. The Secret Scripture and The Long Long Way by Sebastian Barry. All the Diana Gabaldon books - 7 in the series, first book is Crosstitch. All books by Noel Barber. Hope this helps.

From the authors given, the OP seems to be after British female crime writers. Martina Cole writes East End gang land underworld type thrillers.

American female crime/thriller writers, try:

Patricia Cornwell
Beverly Barton
Mary Burton
Cathy Reichs
Tess Gerritsen
Lisa Gardener
Erica Spindler
Wendy Corsi Staub
Lisa Jackson
Alex Kava
Karen Rose
Allison Brennan
Jilliane Hoffman

All the above are good authors, I've read books by them all (some are a bit in your face gory).

Tony, the OP is after crime type thrillers. Also, you aren't supposed to promote your own books here.

Considering the fact that this book is pushed in thriller forum by someone as anonymous (no reviews, no wish list) the recommendation looks a bit suspicious, sorry

The Merrily Watkins series of books by Phil Rickman are a really good read, set in the borderlands around Hereford and Ludlow Merrilyis a vicar who also happens to be the Dioscean Exorcist, but these are well thought out and extremely well written books that make you think and are not the usual thing you would expext given the subject matter.

I've just been sent the Kindle 'Green Blood is for France' by John Gaynard (I think it's a special promotion - free on Kindle) - not a female author and Irish, not English, but crime and un-put-down-able so far. Murdered body on an Irish beach and then into a French political scandal, but not at all too detailed or complicated. A sort of less dense and heavy Frederick Forsyth. Good gripping story and no unnecessary nastiness! Worth a try, perhaps?

No self-promo allowed in these threads, try MOA Forum. This point has been made twice already in this (short) discussion.
