I'm running out of books to read!!

I love forensics thrillers like Kathy Reichs ... I also love Stephen King, Dean Koontz, John Saul, etc ...  I've also read all of the Jonathan Kellerman books ... I do have some of Kevin O'Brien to start reading ...

I also love Preston/Douglas books, too ... I've read all of them ...

Stephen King is my favorite! I also Like Preston/Childs. If you are looking for horror maybe you'd like Bently Little(The Association is my favorite of his) but I also treally  liked The Resort).

You have the same tastes as me.  Some authors I like are Jeffrey Deaver, Tami Hoag (not her romance books!), Lisa Gardner, Stephen White, Karin Slaughter, Alex Kava.

Hi KDL You might try John Sanford (Prey series) or John Lutz. I tried a new author a couple years ago and loved his creepiness! Cody McFayden,. I believe Shadowman was his first. Give em a try.

Have you read Patricia Cornwell?

Give Tess Gerritsen a try, she was an internist so she does forensic stuff like Reichs.  I work at a library and Richard Laymon has become quite popular there, King has written some blurbs on his books too.

I would say Patricia Cornwell is ok for the first 4 or 5 books and then she gets a bit tedious. IMHO.
