Hi everybody! I have a friend who is looking for some good thrillers. Does anyone have some suggestions? I would really appreciate it!

Thank you!

I would suggest anything by Vince Flynn, Brad Thor, David Baldacci, Alex Berenson, Jack Higgins, James W Huston, Tom Clancy for Spy/Military/government type thrillers.

Lee Child's Jack Reacher series is excellent. Gone Tomorrow is one of my 5 star books

For every day man in extraordinary situation type thrillers, I would suggest Linwood Barclay or Harlan Coben. Both are great writers. Coben also has the Myron Bolitar series which is great. In the same category, I just read 15 Seconds by Andrew Gross, very good book.

There are many more, but this should get them started

Here are some my of my favorite thriller authors:

  • James Rollins
  • Clive Cussler
  • Matthew Reilly
  • Ted Bell
  • Daniel Silva
  • Stephen Hunter
  • Steve Berry
  • Douglas Preston
  • Lincoln Child

I suggest reading Preston& Child's Pendergast series. The series should be read in order.
