Read One - and only one!

Nothing against those who enjoy reading a series, or trilogies, or everything a favorite author has written, but I don't have time to read everything. I prefer to read widely, but I don't want to miss anything. Please recommend a book by your favorite prolific writers, if I am only going to read one. (I omitted YA, nonfiction, and those authors I did read LOTS of their books - Stephen King, Robin Cook, Scott Turow, John Grisham, James Michener, Martin Cruz Smith, Stuart Woods, Joseph Wambaugh, Michael Crichton, and would pick up one of their books any day.)
