Anne K meint:
Have you tried Ian Rankin? He's just written the last Rebus book, but if you haven't read any of them, there are plenty of books in the series.

RK Hawkins meint:
I love crime fiction. Particular favorites include:
-Elmore Leonard
-Dennis Lehane
-Ed McBain
-Michael Connelly
-Donald E. Westlake/Richard Stark (pen name)
-Stephen Dobyns
-James Lee Burke
-Ross MacDonald
-Raymond Chandler
-Robert Crais
-George Pelecanoes
-Richard Price
-John Connolly
-Dashiell Hammet
-Robert B. Parker
-Mickey Spillane
-James Ellroy

That should hold you for a while. If that still isn't enough, you could try some Dean Koontz books, which technically aren't crime stories but mystery/suspense thrillers, but they should do in a pinch. Something you could also check out is a book called "Messiah", written by Boris something (I forgot the last name). It was the basis for a very popular crime series produced by the BBC.

You could also read one of the greatest crime novels of all time, Crime & Punishment by Dostoevsky. There's also a very good cop memoir written by a guy called Edward Conlon (a Harvard grad and NYPD Detective). It's called Blue Blood. Or read some true crime, Truman Capote's In Cold Blood.

And if you like to watch crime as well as read it, check out the following shows on DVD:
-The Shield
-The Wire

And if you like '50s-style pulp fiction, search for Hard Case Crime, a U.S. publisher that specializes in reprinting lost classics from the pulp era and publishing new authors writing in this vein. Also good is a book called "The Blood-Dimmed Tide", although I don't know the author's name.

Okay, let me know what you decided on! Enjoy your reading.

M. Fischer meint:
Have you ever tried anything of Ann Rule e.g the stranger beside me, or small sacrifices, but beware those are true crime stories.

Well I just about finished Deaver's "The Watchmaker" and liked it very much. I wasn't even aware that he's the author of "the bone collector", which I love as a movie. I recommend him. As for myself, I am going to order some of his other "Rhyme"-novels. Cheers!

S. Pietrek meint:
I did read 3 novels from Ann Rule , but it was not quite the type of book I liked to read :-(

S. Pietrek meint:

R. Schmidt meint:
My "must read" suggestions are as follows:
- Martin Cruz Smith (Arkadi Renko series - starting with Gorki Park - playing in Russia, Cuba, Germany)
- Henning Mankell (Kurt Wallander series)
- Hakan Nesser (Van Veeteren series)
- Daniel Silva (Gabriel Allon series)
- Philip Kerr
- Robert Harris
- Frederick Forsyth (except The Afghan - disappointing!)
- Douglas Kennedy

S. Pietrek meint:
Love Henning Mankell and Hakan Nessers van Veeteren series ( had 2 other ones , BIG dissapointment ) , must look up the other ones , just thought of the author of the Mitchell/Markaby series , it is Ann Granger , not so hot about her Fran Faraday ones though .Donna Leon is also good .

Werner meint:
Try Raymond Chandler, Dashiell Hammet or Chester Himes. Elmore Leonhard's great so is Carl Hiaasen (and funny to).

Antwort auf einen früheren Beitrag vom 12.01.2008 20:08:41 GMT+01:00
3 more good ones are Elisabeth George, Jan Burke and James Patterson!

Irene Lindner meint:
I'm so glad someone mentioned Elizabeth George, she's my fav! But I'd recommend reading her novels in the 'correct' order.

Kate Kirsch meint:
Try Stephen Booth, there a seven books in a series.
And what about Greg Iles? He has written some true thrillers.

Antwort auf einen früheren Beitrag vom 14.01.2008 20:28:00 GMT+01:00
Have you ever tried Janet Evanovich? She's an American writer and her Stefanie Plum novels are quite funny. It's a bit different from all this Mankell and Leon and Elisabeth George stories (which I quite adore) but nevertheless worth a try. But I recommend to start them in the right order and of course in English, the German translation is not as half as good.

tcsilberstein meint:
I love the Janet Evanovich books - they're very funny. As to more serious crime novels I recommend Patricia Cornwells "Kay Scarpetta" books.

Elke Antje meint:
And what about Fred Vargas - no, not a male author as you could suppose but a female French one with a special kind of inventing mysteries. And I also would like to recommend the Scottish author Ian Rankin with his protagonist inspector John Rebus.
And last not least the non-fiction story "In cold blood" written by Truman Capote after a real crime had happened in the fifties, absolutely great! Maybe you watched the film "Capote" which is about his life and this book. And last: do you know Liza Marklund, a Swedish author?

bookmolly meint:
Liza Marklund is good, I agree. Also Tess Gerritsen, Val McDermid, James Patterson and Margaret Murphy.

Martin Zemann meint:
Try Craig Russell: Brother Grimm (Arrow)

S. Ehrnberg meint:
Some of the authors that I like have already been mentioned, and here some other favorites in my bookshelves...
Jonathan Kellerman-- The Alex Delaware-series,
James Patterson- Alex Cross- and The Women's Murder Club-series,
John Sandford-- Lucas Davenport, a.k.a. the Prey-series
Jeff Lindsay-- The Dexter books

And the king of crime, although not new at all:
John D. MacDonald-- the Travis McGee novels. Written between late '50s to mid '70s. Highly entertaining though!

mina s. meint:
One of the very best, in my opinion, ist Michael Dibdin (alas, died last year too young). Not easy to read, but really worth it. His protagonist is Aurelio Zen, the setting is Italy (Dibdin lived in Italy for some time). Read in English only!

Antwort auf einen früheren Beitrag vom 17.01.2008 23:07:13 GMT+01:00
I love reading Nicci French - they really get to me and make me paranoid & on edge till I've finished!
I've just finished one by Sophie Hannah, also quite nail-biting.

B. Davis meint:
If you like historical "who done it's" then I can strongly recommend the works of Paul C Doherty. He has written a number of series covering Egypt, Rome, 11th Century England and various other eras, and there is not one book that has disappointed me. If you're a lover of Kathy Reichs, then I can also recommend Linda Fairstein, who has a similar style of writing.

Kate Kirsch meint:
Well, I have another tipp for historical crime fiction: Caleb Carr has written two books set in the late 19th century in New York. They are connected, so try "The Alienist" first. It kept me reading into the wee hours ...

KiM meint:
How about John Katzenbach? He has written some great thrillers that are very intense, such as "The Analyst" and "The Madman's Tale". I've just checked, he has written many more, but as far as I know only five of them have been translated into German - I prefer the English versions of them.

Ilka meint:
If you like the Brunetti mysteries you will probably also enjoy the Laurenti mysteries by Veit Heinichen based in Trieste. They have been published in German and Italian.
