Mike French Paul Levine books should be on this list!

Rachel Paul Levine is not an author I've, um, investigated yet. If you'd be interested in adding any of your favorites to the list, it would be much appreciated!


message 3: by Jenny (new)

Jenny Dietzel John D. MacDonald should be added to the list.


message 4: by Rachel (new)

Rachel Excellent. Another author I haven't read. If you've got some good MacDonald books to add, go for it!
