From a Buick 8 by Stephen King.
Sue Grafton’s alphabet mystery series. First one is called A is for Alibi. She recently passed away and didn’t get to Z but she only had one more to go, so the last book in the series is Y for Yesterday
I absolutely loved the series I love the character. She’s a former cop that didn’t like the rules of being a cop and decided to be private investigator.
Karin slaughter’s will trent series
Just read Two Girls Down by Louisa Luna—it was pretty good! Currently reading Jane Harper’s second book about an Aussie investigator!
Anything from James Patterson

In Death Series by J.D. Robb
Yes yes yes!!! Love Eve and Roarke!
YES!! I finished survivor in death not too long ago! So good!!
@Christine Roarke is the best ?
I reread this series usually once a year. ALL of the books lol.
@Taylor hell yeah!!! I’d love him even without all that money but its so cute how Eve deals with it!
Girl Waits With Gun, Gods of Gotham
Have you read, The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo series?
Stop everything and go get Naked in Death by JD Robb. Trust the Robb-ers, you are doing yourself wrong if you don’t try this series.
Do the books in the series have to be read in a particular order?
@Gwenn, they don’t “have” to be, but minor details change as you get further in. It’s about cops, so some charcters don’t come in until later, some get promoted, etc. Each novel stands alone, though. So if you want you can jump around, but to get the full experience, read in order.
@Katherine thank you ? I’ve been looking forward to trying these
Omg, they’re SO GOOD. Book #47 just came out, and I collect the paperbacks. I’m now up to 30/46! (#47 is hardcover so it doesn’t count, lol.) There’s a full list of the books, plus the novellas and the Nora Roberts/JD Robb crossover, available online.
I just went to Book Series in Order and screen shotted the first several titles!
I have the In Death series in my TBR list.
Shelley Coriell’s the Apostles series.
In Defense of Innocence https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/38527442-in-defense-of-innocence?ac=1&from_search=true
The Mitch Rapp Saga by Vince Flynn
Louise Penny’s books
The Chris Carter Books
Rachel Howzell Hall’s Elouise Norton series.
Mr. Mercedes (Bill Hodges trilogy) by Stephen King
Peter James’s Roy Grace series based in Brighton United Kingdom
“Lock In” by John Scalzi is the perfect blend of detective and sci-fi.
Any books by Peter James, Simon Kernick , Peter Robinson, Agatha Christie, Ian Rankin , Jeffrey Deaver (Lincoln Rhyme series), Michael Connelly, Andrew Gross would be good in my opinion
John Sandford books, the Lukas Davenport Prey series.
Hanshi of Central Park.
Sense of Evil by Kay Hooper… No regrets,,, ??
Actually Try Kay Hooper’s Novel.. ?
Well if you asked me in the beginning of December I could have recommended you one…
But I’m writing it as we speak,
The Funicular….as mine is not ready I would recommend
Louise Ross has many set in the north of the uk….DCI Ryan series
Harry Bosch series by Michael Connelly starts with The Black @Echo
Ha! I should have read your comment before I posted and said the same thing!
Michael Connelly. His Harry Bosch series ?
Have you read Tana French?
No I haven’t.
@Amanda I like Tana French too, especially her first two. “Into the Wood” and “The Likeness”.
@Brandy I’ll have to check her out.
Harry Dresden. Its a cop/detective series with a strong supernatural theme.
Elizabeth Haynes books, especially Human Remains. It’s on the dark side tho, fyi.
The Detective’s Daughter series by Leslie Thomson.
David Rosenfelt’s mysteries are good and also funny. He is a dog lover and there are dogs in all of his stories. Julia Spencer-Flemings series about a female Episcopalian priest and a small town sheriff are also great-our book club loved them. Louise Penny’s are also good.Any of the Robert B. Parker series about Spenser.
In the Woods by Tana French and Cormoran Strike series by Robert Galbraith. Galbraith’s series is a PI series but reads very close to a gritty detective noir.
Try Alison Gaylin novels
Grace Gabbiano Mysteries and Andi Comstock Supernatural Mysteries, both series by me. Also, mysteries by PJ Parrish, PJ Tracy, Karin Slaughter, Matt Hilton, Dean Koontz.
