Gretchen | 4 comments Hi all...first post...looking for a new author. I love the crime/thriller genre, but I haven;t read alot of authors in the genre. My favorite author is Karin Slaughter. Looking for something along those lines. I like the gritty raw murder mystries/police procedurals.

Authors I have read: Karin Slaughter, Lisa Gardner (D.D. Warren Series), Particia Cornwell(only 1), and John Connelly(only 1) I have a Mo Hayder book but haven't started that one yet. Any suggestions are welcome. (and just in case you are wondering, I don't have weak eyes or stomach when it comes to content.) :) Thanks!!

Jill Hutchinson (Bucs1960) | 8523 comments You might also want to try Ian RankinIan Rankin. His Rebus series is pretty gritty.

Gatorman | 7251 comments I would go with John Connolly and Mo Hayder. Both are excellent in their genre.

I follow the rizzolli and isles tv show. I'm sure the books are just as good. Thanks for the suggestions!

Annie Bellet | 1 comments I recommend trying out Zoe Sharp- Killer Instinct now that her books are finally crossing the pond. That's the first one in her Charlie Fox series.

Matt (MattLynn) | 1 comments Zoe Sharp is very good, and a great person as well. I've done some writer panels as well. You could try my free story on Kindle 'Lethal Force', and if you like try one of the 'Death Force' thrillers.Lethal Force

My sister just bought two books from the Rebus Series by Ian Rankin, and they're making my mouth water. I can't wait to read them.

Diane S. Carol O'Connell, her Mallory series is very good and unique. Also Denise Mina, her first one is GarnetHill and one of my favorites.
