The girl in the ice!
The Shetland series is very good!
Go for The Bill Hodges Trilogy by Stephen King or I Know a Secret by Tess Gerritsen
I love the J.D. Robb “Death By…” series
I have a few of those that I’ve picked up at flea markets long before I realized there were 50 million of them. Do they have to be read in order or are they stand alone?
It preferable to read them in order. Otherwise there are things you will miss in the character development and story line.
The Prey series, by John Sandford. The Jack Reacher novels, by Lee Child.
I read he first one a few weeks ago killing floor. Good but found myself drifting from time to time. Does it get better after that? Do they have to be read in order
@Monique Ive read all of them, some start slow but always get better. As far as in order, yes and no. Most are good stand alone books, but some do reference previous characters.
@Matt thanks !
Cant remember the author but Girl in Ice is supposed to be a detective thriller series…I read Girl in Ice and its amazing( my husband finished it in a 4 hr flight)
Harlan Coben, Lisa Scottoline, and Johnathan Kellerman.
Love Harlan Coben and Lisa Scottoline. My in person book clubs first book was Cobens Home and second one was Scottolines Every Fifteen Minutes. Such great discussions
They’re two of my favorite authors.
Check out Camilla Lackberg !

@Monique my suggestion is every time you get one, you put the next on hold lol
good idea Amy! I’ve read only two so far. The descriptions never seem that great but hen I start reading and love in. Not even sure why lol. Guess enough action equally disbursed. Easy reading. I like her.
James Lee Burke. All his books are good to read. John Connolly’s Charlie Parker series is worth a try.
I’m collecting James Lee Burke’s novels
@Randy .Happy for you.I am sure you will enjoy his books as much as I do, if not more.
@Vijayan have you heard Will Patton reading his book for audio books? If you haven’t please try one, you will love it.

Cormoran Strike novels by Robert Galbraith
Allison Brennan’s series….Lucy Kincaid….
I have a few of these but not in order so I haven’t read them.
Def need to get my books organized lol
Love them…..u do have to stop every now and then and read something light,….the series tends to very intense….
@Stephanie are there any romantic subplots!? ??
I have a lot of patrons recommend the Longmire series by Craig Johnson. Also Stuart Woods.
This may sound funny but is the longmire series based off the tv show?
Yes it is! The series was so popular that it was developed into the print and paper format. Still flying off the library’s shelf.
@Amanda the tv series is based off the books
@Stephanie Yes, that’s what I meant. Lol. Thank you.
Anything by Mankel, Nesbo, even Nesser all Scandinavian writers- good character development, super interesting crimes and atmospheric. Also JKRowling’s Cormoran Strike series
Terror In Ypsilanti http://www.gregoryafournier.com/
Gaudy Night by Dorothy Sayers
I liked “The Cuckoos Calling” and the other books in that series.
John Dunnings Bookman series, if you like Biblio mysteries.
“The Blue Knight”, by Joseph Wambaugh
The Helen Grace series
In Death series
The Hamish Macbeth series and the Sue Grafton alphabet series
Lucus Davenport, the Prey series by John Sandford. If possible go to the library and get some of the older ones. Night Prey from the 90s was a good one.
Try the Harry Bosch series by Michael @Becca
Elizabeth Haynes books.
Women’s murder club
My favourite cop series have been the Alex Delaware series by Jonathan Kellerman and the Peter Decker series by his wife Faye Kellerman. Disclaimer: I don’t read a huge amount in this genre but I read anything and I liked the first of these enough to keep reading others in the series as much for the characters and character relationships as for the mystery. I’m currently reading a non-Decker Faye Kellerman mystery set in Munich in 1929. It’s a different speed but interesting. Because I love reccing books by authors from the Caribbean (where I live), I’m also going to toss in The Bone Readers by Jacob Ross. I’ve only read an excerpt of this so far but it was a very intriguing excerpt.
@Tammy has a cool Cooper Harrington Mystery series. Based in Nashville. He has a dog as his “partner”.
The Harry Bosch series by Michael Connelly.
The Tracy Crosswhite series by Robert Dugoni
Lies by T.M Logan
Try Linda Castillo’s Kate burkholder series. It’s about an Amish Police chief and I was really hesitant to read them. My insurance agent gave me a copy and I was floored by how captivating it was.
