I need help...I am a Vincy Flynn and Brad Thor addict...my wife has brought home from the library, and like Dale Brown books, I see right through their liberal crap...it is hard to find anything to fill the void while Vince and Brad ginn up the next ones...help me if you will with some authors who can hold my interest.
Silva is ok, but I don't care about stealing a Rembrant painting...I like conspiracy, spy, etc.
Well, have you read any of Joel Rosenberg’s books?
“The Last Jihad” was un-put-downable. And I don’t even really like books like that. You have to put up with some overt Christian advocacy, but it’s only overt and not dreadful.
And every dog kind of gets his day, the characters are fully developed, even the bad ones.
I think he’s very good and you should try him.
I love Michael Connelly’s books. Good plots with good writing. It’s important, and fun, to read them in order.
I’m currently reading Craig Johnson’s Longmire mysteries and enjoying them, again, in order.
Ted Bell.....I read his first one after Clive Cussler raved about it.....he writes really good ones...
Sorry .. at first glance I thought you said boobs.
Take a look at Ben Coes. Definitely our own FReeper Matt Bracken if you haven’t read his trilogy yet. Stephen Coonts.
I like Thor and Flynn as well. Between their books I have been reading James Rollins, Steve Berry, & cussler.
I was asking this same question on the Texas board yesterday!
Try Ben Coes. He has 3 books out with the character Dewey Andreas. I have read the first two and am looking (at the library) for the third. Great reading.
I also love Lee Child’s books, featuring Jack Reacher. A movie has been made of one of the Jack Reacher stories, coming out soon. Jack Reacher is a super tough guy, 6ft.4in. It’s a crying shame they got 5’7” Tom Cruise to play the part.
I also thoroughly enjoyed Barry Eisler’s series of books on the character John Rain.
You can download it for free.
I just read an interesting book called “77 days in September” by Ray Gorham. Its about an EMP type attack on the USA. Not bad for a first novel by an Independent author.
I love the spy/mystery/political thrillers also and maybe my favorite is Nelson DeMille. When one of his new books comes out I’m gone until I’m done with it. Loved Upcountry way more than I thought I would.
Also an extraordinary book - absolutely impossible to put down - was Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand. A true story of an impossible to imagine life - if someone had put Louie Zamperini’s life into fiction no one would believe it. Many interesting real stories on WWII and so beautifully written....mesmerizing. Believe I heard Imus talking about the amazing Zamperini not long ago - he is still alive.
don’t forget Jeff Head, he also wrote a book. He and Bracken are great.
Another vote for Michael Connelly. And add Robert Crais. Just picked up a Lee Child novel - so far so good.
If you have not read any of the Robert B. Parker “Spencer” novels, add that to your list.
Sounds similar to “One Second After” by William R Forstchen
which I am looking at
There's a new Clancy coming out soon. Those continue to be rewarding.
Bookmarking this thread for further suggestions.
Matthew Bracken books (trilogy).
A FReeper, too.
That one was excellent. Loved it!
Dean Koontz. An obvious Conservative. Start with “The Husband.” You won’t put it down. You’ll read ‘til 3:00 a.m. to finish it.
