Any suggestions for a good crime novel?

I really liked Defending Jacob by William Landay. It’s not a genre I typically read, but that book stayed with me.
The Harry Bosch/Mickey Haller series by Michael Connelly.
Connelly writes well. An excellent recommendation.
I second this. He is awesome and also Greg Iles Penn Cage series.
Jo Nesbo is brilliant
Might suggest one of my own titles as some people have really liked it. A Hawaiian cop story. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Mano-Liam-Robert-Mullen-ebook/dp/B072J2M2ML/

Depends on what you like. Men At Arms by Terry Pratchett is a murder mystery in a fantasy setting with a comedic bent. Silence of the Lambs is a psychological thriller that boils down to cops pursuing a killer.
And then you have my books. I write lighthearted murder mysteries. http://jaymims.com/
Alex Kava’s Maggie O’Dell series….Melinda Leigh….
Patricia Cornwell or Val McDermid do an amazing series.
Have you read the classics as Dashiell Hammett’s The Maltese Falcon and Red Harvest; Raymond Chandler’s The Big Sleep, The Long Goodby, and Farewell My Love?
All, except the first one. All very good books
The Maltese Falcon is the best of all those classics, it was so successful that it has 3 movie versions, 1931, 1936, 1941. The last one is one of the classics of the film noir, directed by John Huston and with Humphrey Bogart, Peter Lorre and Sydney Greenstreet, the most amazing trio in movie history.
Red Dragon. Very good
thanks, i read that years ago, great read
Thank you all
Into the Woods by Tana French
Lawrence Block’s Matt Scudder series. It’s excellent.
What about the Eve Duncan series by Iris Johansen
Love Eve Duncan!
@Brenda I have only read the first few books so far but I enjoyed them also
Lisa Jackson’s books keep you on the edge of your seat. Her DEEP FREEZE is especially good.
