Best crime author?
Robert #questionnaire #crime
Ian Rankin is my very first
To me Patterson
Agatha Christie ?
Stuart McBride hands down
My favourite is Kerry Wilkinson!
For entertainment value: RobertCrais (Elvis Cole); For detailed investigation: JerryDeaver (Lincoln Ryme)
Too many to mention , depends on the style of writing and the crimes they write, and how I am feeling at the time.
It’s either got to be Chris Carter, Tania Carver or Karin Slaughter for me ?
Peter james. James Lee Burke.
Jo Nesbo !
Ian rankin or peter James. Or maybe it’s Val mcdermid or peter Robinson. I give in, I don’t know.
Yes depends how I feel. But James Oswald is a fav, and Paul Johnston.
Best? There isn’t one. 🙂
Michael Connelly, Chris Carter, Linda Fairstein, Kerry Wilkinson, Jeffrey Deaver, James Patterson, Kathy Reichs. All excellent writers and very different styles.
Can’t pick just one… my top three (as per now) James Lee Burke John Connolly Mo Hayder
Chris Carter my fave
Karin slaughter Robert bryndza Angela marson M.j Aldridge
Helen Fields, Mo Hayder, Martina Cole….
Peter James, Denzil Meyrick
Peter James,James Patterson,Val McDermid,Ian Rankin,Martina Cole.
Three favourites are Karin Slaughter, Chris Carter and Angela Marsons
For consistently enjoyable my top three are Lawrence Block, Elmore Leonard, and James Ellroy. Of the three I think Block is the best writer because of his ability to write books that are very different from each other.
Too many to list
To day for me Jo Spain.
Agatha Christie. Ian Rankin.
Dare I say James Hadley Chase ? I also like Walter Mosley.
Way too many good ones, but I do recommend TJ Lebbon’s “The Hunt” and “The Family Man” thrill-rides! Damned good books!
No such thing. It’s all subjective and very much down to personal taste. Besides who can read them all?!! ?
Agree. But I do have favorites.
As do I. But it’s an impossible question to answer. All anyone can do is list their favourite books, authors, etc. And there are a gazillion tastes out there. The beauty is in choices. ?
Stuart McBride. Mo Hayder. Jeffrey Deaver. Not necessarily in that order though
A difficult choice. Agatha Christie, Dorothy L Sayers and Ngaio Marsh from the 1930s to 1980s, more recently Michael Connelly, Karen Slaughter, Tess Geritsen, James Carol and Richard Montana Montinari from modern times.
John connolly Michael connelly James Lee Burke don winslow these 4 raise the bar for me.
@AC is excellent.
Mark Billington, Stuart Macbride, Sarah Paretsky. Ed McBain. Sue Grafton.
Always … James herbert xxx rip …. never read any better since xxx
Peter Robinson. Or if you like historical novels Paul Doherty
Mark Billington, Ian Rankin (Rebus) Karen Slaughter!
Arthur Conan @Doyle
Thomas H Cook is a legend.
Karin Slaughter, Tess Gerritsen, Chevy Stevens, Angela Marsons, Rachel Abbott, Robert Bryndza and so many more that will pop into my pea brain the moment I’ve posted this!!
