174. I've read the first 5 battles books.
The second one, "The Deceived," was my favorite, but the third one, "Shadow of Betrayal," was only so-so. I gave the other three 4 stars out of 5.

136. Unusual book
Flavia is an 11-year old chemist who uses science to solve mysteries and torture her sisters. Funny and scary with some very human characters.

The book is written in the first person by Alan Bradley narrating as Flavia. Really good, and I almost always hate books written by men as fist-person females. This is the exception.

Link:

http://www.stopyourekillingme.com/B_Authors/Bradley_Ala...

and I hope he seen writes more books about Flavia!

143. Burke description
Mostly set in New Iberia, Louisiana, although some of the later ones made it up to Montana.

Dave is an on-again/off-again police detective/private citizen who has plenty of his own demons to confront.


Looks like there are 18 books in the Robicheaux series so far:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Lee_Burke

In my opinion, Burke is one of the best at making you feel the atmosphere. You're not just along for the ride in his books, you share the mood and smell the bayou.

145. Connelly description
My favorite series since Spencer or Travis McGee. Harry Bosch is an LAPD homicide detective, so most of the stories are mysteries brought on in his line of work. Connelly has several other books with other series characters, but they occasionally intertwine in each others' story lines. Bosch has also made a cameo appearance in a Robert Crais book, meeting Elvis Cole on the front steps of LAPD HQ as they leave the building.

List of books and other appearances:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harry_Bosch

(The rest of the Connelly books are just as good, IMO.)

146. Crais description

More Los Angeles books; Cole and Pike are former LAPD officers turned private investigators. Cole is the straight-up, normal citizen-type guy, while Pike was a USMC scout-sniper who remains silent and very deadly throughout the series. Cole is the primary protagonist in most of the books, but Pike takes the lead in several of the later ones, probably because fans liked him more than Cole. (This fan does, anyway.) :)

147. Cussler description
Very formulaic writing; Pitt works for the National Underwater Marine Administration (NUMA) exploring and saving the world's oceans (and usually the world). Invariably, he discovers some madman's plot to melt the artic, reverse the gulf stream, dry up the oceans, or rid the world of the human problem. Invariably, Pitt's life ends up in imminent danger with no possible hope of salvation, and invariably he somehow saves the day AND gets the girl.

In spite of that, every one of them is a fun read. Not to be missed.

144. Coben, Harlan (Myron Bolitar) - NYC
Mostly adventure/detective novels, Coben does a good job of adding a twist that you don't see coming.

Myron Bolitar is a self-effacing former college basketball star whose career was derailed by a knee injury before his first pro game. He turned into a sports agent who, together with his rather odd (and deadly) friend Win, manages to find his way into and out of some interesting situations.

183. Cannell, Stephen J. (Shane Scully Series) LAPD
Edited on Tue Jun-21-11 08:40 AM by Little Star
From Wikipedia:

Background:
Shane Scully is a fictional Detective III in the LAPD. Similar to Cannell's style when he was working as a television writer, Scully's background is very much a part of how he acts and why he acts the way he does. He grew up in an orphanage. In his early years on the force, he had few friends and tried to operate as sort of a loner type. As the novels have progressed, he has opened himself up to others. In Cold Hit, Scully mentions that he might now be opened up too much.

Since his first appearance, Scully has slowly gained a family. He fell in love with Alexa, who is the chief of detectives for the LAPD. The 2 characters have been married since the 3rd novel in the series. Alexa and Scully live with Chooch Scully, who is Shane Scully's son from a one time fling with a prostitute. Starting with Vertical Coffin, Chooch's girlfriend Delfina also lives with the Scully Family. Finally there is the Scully's cat Franco, who Shane Scully got from a prostitute whose murder he solved in Hollywood Tough.

Personality:
Shane Scully is a tough, hard nosed cop who often bends the rules in order to get things done. He has an extremely open mind that allows him to "think outside the box" when needed. Examples include Hollywood Tough, where he convinced the LAPD to finance a major motion picture in order to solve the murder of a prostitute. In Cold Hit, he convinced the LAPD to challenge the authority of the Department of Homeland Security in order to solve a series of unsolved serial murders.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shane_Scully


Shane Scully Series in order:
1.The Tin Collectors
2.The Viking Funeral
3.Hollywood Tough
4.Vertical Coffin
5.Cold Hit
6.White Sister
7.Three Shirt Deal
8.On the Grind
9.The Pallbearers
10.The Prostitutes' Ball

148. Deaver description
As seen in the movie, "The Bone Collector," Rhyme is a paralyzed former NYPD forensic specialist who has some rather amazing powers of deduction and evidence analysis.

Working almost exclusively from his townhouse in NYC (with his NYPD partner Amelia Sachs in the field), Rhyme manages to solve some complex and baffling cases that leave everyone else either stumped or going off in the wrong direction.

149. Eisler description
One of the few series I've found with a bad guy as the protagonist. John Rain is an assassin, working mostly in Japan and southeast Asia (in the books I've read so far). Formerly in the US Army in Vietnam, he had some experience working with the CIA there and expanded it into a full-time career when he got out.

Each of these books kept me up late at night until I finished; I couldn't wait to see what came next.

This is also a series I'd recommend reading in order, more so than some of the others I've listed.

Eisler himself is a former CIA agent and Cornell grad, and he writes for Huffpo, MichaelMoore.com and others.

150. Flynn, Vince (Mitch Rapp - counterterrism operative)
I don't know if Mitch Rapp changed or if I did, but I really enjoyed the first few books in this series. The last ones? Not quite as much.

Mitch Rapp is a counter-terrorism operative for the US who takes the fight to the terrorists. The books are all action-packed and adventure-filled, and I devoured the first several. The last ones have taken such a political slant that I have a hard time enjoying the action in between.

264. Fowler, Christopher (Bryant & May Mysteries - London)

Wonderful characters - both in their eighties who head the Peculiar Crimes Unit in London. They don't depend entirely on science - sometimes they call witches and other characters to help solve the crimes.

Lots of chuckles here..

151. Haig description
A famously irreverent character who reminds me of several Nelson DeMille protagonists, Drummond is a JAG lawyer in the Army who specializes in secret cases; those that can't be publicly tried due to the sensitive jobs of the participants.

He seems to muddle though each one, pissing off his temporary partners, his boss, the commanding officers of the bases he visits, and the judge and opposition. In spite of all of this, he gets to the bottom of the case and exposes the true corruption (as opposed to the guilt of those who appeared to have committed the crime).

I really like Drummond's character, and frequently find myself laughing out loud while reading these books. I'll bet most of us wish we could get away with talking to our bosses the way he does. :)

137. Thumbs up! I absolutely enjoyed this series......
These mysteries are set in the Mississippi Delta (Deep South). They are light, fun reading!

Sara Booth Delaney is trying to save her old family plantation. The ghost of her great-great-grandmother's nanny, Jitty and Sara Booth's hound dog are her only companions in Dahlia House. Sara Booth is the only one who can see or hear Jitty. Jitty, who is very funny, is determined to save Sarah Booth from spinsterhood. Sara Booth and her friend Tinkie open a detective agency and the troubles begin. Sara Booth's love life will tug at your heart strings and life in Zinnia will entertain you.

As the author states: Meet Sarah Booth Delaney... an unconventional southern belle whose knack for uncovering the truth is about to make her the hottest detective in Zinnia, Mississippi... if it doesn't make her the deadest.

This series remind me of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum Series only much, much better.

You can find a series list in order on this page here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carolyn_Haines

272. Serailler is moody, intraverted police detective who
spends his vacations in Italy, working on his true love, painting. He also has to deal with his messy family of origin, some of whom get involved in the mysteries.

This is a sometimes dark but also intriguing series set in a cathedral town that seems an awful lot like Wells.

152. Hunter description
There may be very few opening books of a series as gripping as "Point of Impact," the first Bob the Nailer book. Set throughout the US and even in Japan and Cuba, the series meanders back and forth as it traces the life of former USMC sniper Bob Lee Swagger, as well as his father Earl, a WWII vet and Arkansas State Trooper. There are a couple I'd rate as "average," but most of them are very good reads, and Point of Impact remains one of my favorite books ever. I've bought it, read it, and given it away at least 3 times. I never get it back because whoever I pass it to devours it and then HAS to share it with someone else they know. :)

153. Hiaasen, Carl (Skink) - Florida
This may not technically be a series, but the themes and locations are so similar that the continuing appearance of one of the lesser characters allows me to include it in this category.

While the protagonists of the novels may change, former Florida governor-turned homeless environmentalist Clinton Tyree (Skink) has recurring roles in several Hiaasen books. (He's in all of the even-numbered books, according to wikipedia.)

From Wikipedia:
Hiaasen's fiction mirrors his concerns as a journalist and Floridian. His novels have been classified as "environmental thrillers" and are usually found on the mystery shelves in bookshops, although they can just as well be read as mainstream reflections of contemporary life.

He said this about Florida: "The Sunshine State is a paradise of scandals teeming with drifters, deadbeats, and misfits drawn here by some dark primordial calling like demented trout. And you'd be surprised how many of them decide to run for public office."

Hiaasen's Florida is a hive of greedy businessmen, corrupt politicians, dumb blondes, apathetic retirees, intellectually challenged tourists, hard-luck redneck cooters, and militant ecoteurs. It is the same Florida of John D. MacDonald and Travis McGee, but aged another 20 years and viewed with a more satiric or sardonic eye.

175. Hamilton, Steve (Alex McKnight Series)
Edited on Mon Jun-13-11 01:09 PM by Little Star
Note about the author (from Wikipedia):
Hamilton's novels have won numerous awards. His very first book, A Cold Day in Paradise, won the Private Eye Writers of America/St. Martin's Press Award for Best First Mystery by an Unpublished Writer. After it was published, the novel went on to win the Mystery Writers of America Edgar Award for Best First Novel and the Private Eye Writers of America Shamus Award for Best First Novel, the only first novel to win both awards.


This series is set in the town of Paradise on the shores of Lake Superior (Michigan's Upper Peninsula). Alex McKnight runs a hunting camp built by his late father but he also has private-detective license. He was a cop in Detroit before his partner was killed and he was shot.

I have only read the first book in this series so far. And so far so good!


1) A Cold Day In Paradise
2) Winter of the Wolf Moon
3) The Hunting Wind
4) North of Nowhere
5) Blood is the Sky
6) Ice Run
7) A Stolen Season
8) Misery Bay

You can peek inside the first book here:

I haven't read any of these lately, but I rated them all very well when I did read them several years ago.

Set in Los Angeles, Alex Delaware is a former child phychologist turned forensic phychologist who - usually through his police consulting work - finds some pretty horrendous cases. Together with his friend Milo Sturgis, who is a gay LAPD detective, they uncover the "unsavory truth."

I love irreverent characters like those in Nelson DeMille's books, or Brian Haig's Sean Drummond.

Wikipedia said it as well as I could:
Solomon vs. Lord series: Levines novels often have a sly, sardonic tone. Publishers Weekly wrote that Solomon vs. Lord had genuine laugh-out-loud moments. Fans of Carl Hiaasen and Dave Barry will enjoy this humorous Florida crime romp. Though novels of crime fiction, they often revolve around the conflict between Victoria Lord, a by-the-book lawyer and her ethically challenged partner, Steve Solomon, who lives by Solomons Laws:

It's too bad there are only four books in this series.

156. MacDonald description
MacDonald is dead these last 25 years, and his books are probably out of print, but the 21 novels in the Travis McGee series remain among my all-time favorites.

McGee was a "salvage consultant," or a problem fixer. He lived the life of a beach bum on a houseboat ("The Busted Flush"), and took his retirement in installments, working when he needed money and retiring when he didn't. Usually through word of mouth, someone would approach him with a mystery, or a missing item, or a person in trouble. He would tenaciously go after the problem until he found a resolution.

I love his views of Florida, too. Again, from Wikipedia:

However, unlike other fictional detectives such as Raymond Chandler's jaded and world-weary Philip Marlowe, McGee clings to what is important to him: his senses of honor, obligation, and outrage. In a classic commentary in Bright Orange for the Shroud, McGee muses,

"Now, of course, having failed in every attempt to subdue the Glades by frontal attack, we are slowly killing it off by tapping the River of Grass. In the questionable name of progress, the state in its vast wisdom lets every two-bit developer divert the flow into drag-lined canals that give him 'waterfront' lots to sell. As far north as Corkscrew Swamp, virgin stands of ancient bald cypress are dying. All the area north of Copeland had been logged out, and will never come back. As the glades dry, the big fires come with increasing frequency. The ecology is changing with egret colonies dwindling, mullet getting scarce, mangrove dying of new diseases born of dryness."

This was in a paperback originally published in 1965 when the general public was still not conversant with the concept of environmentalism.

277. Yes, Wallander has been portrayed by Kenneth Branaugh on British TV, but
Edited on Fri Oct-21-11 12:30 PM by Lydia Leftcoast
the character as portrayed in the Swedish TV version (shown on MhZ Worldview TV and available on DVD) is much closer to the original books.

138. I like Martini better than Grisham.
If you enjoy legal thrillers, San Diego defense attorney Paul Madriani and his partner/sidekick Harry Hinds will fit the bill.

You can find a list of this series in order here:

And I've never read this author. I came here to see if there were any comments. Now I'll have to start at the beginning of the Paul Madriani series.

172. McBain, Ed ( The 87th Precinct )
This police procedural is set in a fictional city. That city is based on the borough of Manhattan in New York City.

This is an older series that I just loved. I re-read it every few years. McBain has a way of making you connect with the characters and the setting.

Here, Wiki has a great write-up and also a list of the books in order:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/87th_Precinct

Now I've gone and made myself all melancholy!

287. James McClure--South African living in England, wrote about apartheid era
The Kramer (an Afrikaner cop) and Zondi (his Zulu driver) mysteries are fortunately historical fiction these days, but McClure left South Africa because of his disgust with the system, and his stories, read in chronological order, take Kramer from annoyance at his "cheeky Kaffir" driver to respect for Zondi's sharp mind and an understanding of his difficult living conditions.

The best of the series is The Steam Pig, but The Song Dog tells how Kramer and Zondi became a team.

157. Parker description
Fitting that Parker should fall right below MacDonald on my list; these are my two favorite series of all time.

Parker may need no introduction - the series was made very famous by the TV series Spenser: For Hire. (One of the few times I thought a TV adaptation did a credible job of portraying the character of a novel.)

Spenser is a Boston private investigator who runs into the usual private eye cases, but solves them with his unusual literary flair.

There are some 40 novels in this series, so it'll last you a long time if you get hooked on them (although they may begin to seem a bit formulaic after the first 10 or 20, the writing is still great).

278. His stand-alone "An Instance of the Fingerpost" is a masterpiece of historical fiction
It's a Rashomon-like novel which tells the same story (In the 17th century, an Oxford don dies suddenly, and his maid is hanged for murdering him) from several points of view.

Each narrator reveals more aspects of the story and previously undisclosed facts about the previous narrators.

This is a must if you are interested in English history, history of science, history of religion, etc.

139. I really enjoyed The Prey Series....
I read 19 Prey Novels in a row when I (late to the game) found Sandford. Couldn't put them down!

The series is set in the MinneapolisSaint Paul(twin Cities)area of Minnesota. It is considered a police procedural series.

You can read about the character (Lucas Davenport) here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lucas_Davenport

You can find a series list in order on this page here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Sandford_ (in order for link to work right you need to choose "novelist")


************************************************************************************************************************************

I also enjoyed his Virgil Flowers Series but there are only 4 novels so far. I must just like the way Sandford writes.

Here is John Sandford's website link:

280. The HBO adaptation of some of the early stories is excellent
and the actors are great. I was surprised to find out that some of the principals are American (including lead actress Jill Scott), and that the sleazy suitor was played by David Oyelowo, i.e. "Danny" on MI-5.

282. Marvelous writing, especially descriptions of Australia's natural wonders, BUT
the 1930s racial attitudes can be cringe-producing, even though Upfield probably qualified as a racial liberal in his day.

158. Woods description
Barrington comes across as slightly pompous to me, but I still get so much enjoyment out of the novels that I keep reading them. A former NYC cop turned lawyer, Barrington is "of counsel" to a major NYC law firm - he takes the criminal cases they don't like to muddy their white shoes with.

With a recurring cast of enjoyable characters and a never-ending parade of women, Barrington seems to always enjoy the good life while getting to the bottom of whatever trouble finds him in each book. There are plenty, and they're all good reads.

135. mvccd1000 recommends this author
Wynne writes thrillers. He has 3 books in his first series and Jhonny Wylde is most likely the first book in another.

Take a look at:

Sounds exciting....

"When Christopher Thomas, a ruthless curator at San Franciscos McFall Art Museum, is murdered and his decaying body is found in an iron maiden in a Berlin museum, his wife, Rosemary, is the primary suspect, and she is tried, convicted and executed. Ten years later, Jon Nunn, the detective who cracked the case, is convinced that the wrong person was put to death. In the years since the case was closed, he's discovered a web of deceit and betrayal surrounding the Thomases that could implicate any number of people in the crime. With the help of the dead woman's friend, he plans to gather everyone who was there the night Christopher died and finally uncover the truth, suspect by suspect. Solving this case may be Nunns last chance for redemption but the shadowy forces behind Christophers death will stop at nothing to silence the past forever."

292. F. Paul Wilson - Repairman Jack
The Tomb
Legacies
Conspiracies
Hosts
The Haunted Air

Not the complete list, I haven't read them all but intend to. Here's how I described Jack in another thread:

Repairman Jack is the hero of a series of novels by F. Paul Wilson, author of The Keep. Jack is available for hire
if you live in the New York City area, and have a problem you can't bring to the police. So you bring it to
Jack, and he "fixes" it for you. He only works for cash, has no social security number, and disdains any interaction
with official society. His adventures are in the category "crime meets weird" since he's always running afoul
of an alien "otherness" from beyond our reality, that wants to come in and take over. The book to start with is The Tomb.
