Ed, I see we share many of the same books on Library Thing -- Follett, Larrson, Kellerman, Smith, Grisham, Coban, Rankin, and anything by Michael Connelly. Since we have similar tastes, try my new mystery/ suspense novel, The Undertaker. It's a great beach/ pool read. It's on Kindle, Sony, Nook, and the other e-book sites, and it has a dozen 5-Star reviews now. You can also follow my writing at http://billbrownwritesnovels.wordpress.com/

Enjoy, Bill Brown
John:

Denise Mina crops up in a fair few libraries on LT. THE LAST BREATH might be a good place to start with her canon. I read Jo Bannister's last year title (by title, I can't recall it) and liked it. Lee Child is alway reliable. Qunintin Jardine's character Bob Skinner rings a bell as another writer by the same name. My P.I. Frank Johnson has been compared to Jack Reacher, if you like new detective books. Frank is out in PELHAM FELL HERE.

Good reading to you,

Ed
George: I agree that Peter Robinson is very good and I will look for Stephen Booth as well. Thanks for the lead! And yes, I can imagine it would have seemed a little strange to see Marie-Lucie as DMT. From all that I hear, people are very happy with her in the Department, which comes as no surprise to those of us who know her.
John. I see we share 13 books in common. I first read Peter Robinson when I found one in my Vancouver hotel shop and I've avidly read all of his I could find ever since! I also read John Grisham's King of Torts in Vancouver, which was interesting as it was during the various Vioxx court cases and heavy TV advertising by contingency fee US lawyers, jumping on the Vioxx bandwagon.

One author we don't share you may wish to try, is Stephen Booth who writes police stories set in Derbyshire, the Peak District, which are very evocative of the area. I can also recommend Ken Follett, especially the Third Twin and Michael Connelly, all of whose books are either set in Los Angeles or nearby and very well written by someone with a deep knowledge of LAPD.

We had a flying visit by Marie-Lucie (DMT), who I first met 20 years ago when she a young TC in London!

Happy reading!
George: I do remember meeting you in Vancouver, and am delighted to make your re-acquaintance through librarything. I think it is a great website, and as you can see, I have been playing on it for just over a year now...ah yes....one of the great advantages of retirement! Delighted to find another Giles Blunt fan! I haven't read his latest yet; I will wait until it comes out in paperback.

Cheers...John
