The March genre for the book club I am in is mystery/thriller. Any recommendations would be wonderful. Thanks!

What kind of mystery are you looking for cozy, suspense, thriller, single book or part of a series???

I have just read Meg Gardiner's Evan Delaney series and it very good.

Nancy Pickard  - Jenny Cain series I am just starting and am really enjoying the book so far.

Unknown Means by Elizabeth Becka is good also.

I think more on the suspense or thriller side of things. I don't mind it being part of a series, as long as it's the first one.

  1. James Patterson's Cross series is really good, it begins with Along Came a Spider.
  2. The Romanov Prophecy by Steve Berry
  3. The FBI Series by Catherine Coulter starts with The Cove

I just read one called Kiss by Ted Dekker and Erin Healy which was really really good.  It is labeled as Christian Fiction but I don't see why, very few references to God, the bible, etc.  nothing that someone else might have put in a book.

I recommend "The Guards" by Ken Bruen. I was blown away by the writing in this book. It is very poetic and spare but the books moves. This is probably my favorite 'find' of 2008. I love anything about Ireland, though.

Immoral by Brian Freeman. It is the first in his series about Lt. Jonathan Stride.
