I just finished They're Watching and LOVED IT!  It was one of the best mysteries I've read in a long time.  I don't know why I had never heard of/read this author before.  I just ordered a few of his other books.  Has anybody else read him and recommend another good book of his to read?

I love all of his books for one reason or another:

The Tim and Dray Rackley series is off the chart good for me. Now admittedly that first book is really hard to get through, not because it's not well written, its because the subject matter is so painful. But if you can still with it because the series gets better from there. You do have to suspense some beliefs with this book, but The KIll Clause is the first, then Troubleshooter, The Program and then Last Shot.

The Tower contains his character Jade Marlow, never read a character that I wanted to slap and hug all at the same time. I emailed GH after we finished it and asked if he was going to write anymore books with Marlow, he just emailed back and said he never says never.

Do No Harm was a medical thriller of a sort. I liked the character, but some panned it. I thought it was an awesome read. But out of all of his the Rackley remain my favs.

Hope you enjoy!

I've read several of his books, and the one that sticks in my head is The Troubleshooter. Definitely an exciting writer.
