Who is your favourite crime author??
Jodie #questionnaire #crime
Mark Billingham (UK) & Linwood Barclay (USA)!
At the moment it’s a toss up between Mark Billingham and Simon Kernick. I also really like Peter James.
@Todd do you just write crime?
No. I have a crime series of three books, THE MCCONNEL CRIME SAGA. VISITATION RITES is a farcical comedy set in the American Southwest desert. I’m going through edits of a near-future “pre-apocalypse” novel. Thanks for asking!
Too hard a question! LJ Ross, Kelly Clayton, Rachel Abbott
US: Linda Fairstein, Karen Rose and James Patterson
Reading Tana French at the minute. Wow.
@Kevin brilliant author. Love her
Elly Griffiths Angela Marsden
Elly Griffiths, @Mark
Elly Griffiths and Jaqueline Winspear
Angela Marsons and L J Ross
No favourite as I like a lot
There’s so many !! But probably James Patterson x
Tess Gerritsen and Elly Griffiths
I like many but, for me, top of the list would have to be Angela Marsons closely followed by Helen Fields.
@Louise Helen fields I have heard of. Can you give me a title I may be familiar with?
@Jodie….Helen writes the ‘Perfect’ series, Perfect Remains is Bk 1.
Chris Carter 🙂
@Julie any I will have heard of?
She has a long series about Dr Ruth Galloway, a forensic archaeologist. A a stand alone called The Stranger Diaries. All are brilliant but best to start at the beginning of the series with The Crossing Places,
James Patterson, Helen Durrant
@Yvonne great writers. I am soon to read a James Patterson
@Jodie once you start you can’t stop. They are moreish
@Yvonne I know. I love your passion for reading… it’s so what I’m like
I’ve got about 5 & keep adding as we’ve got some great authors on this site alone !
@David any though that you really recommend
Jodie Dip @Mark,Elly Griffiths, .@Mike, @Graham, @Chris, @Frances aka Brody, @Lin, @Nick @Theresa, @Andy @Libby aka Patterson. @David @Luca to name but a few.
Tough call- I’d be lucky if I could get it down to 5. Karin Slaughter, Stuart McBride, Ann Cleeves, Mark Billingham, Ngaio Marsh, Kathy Reichs and not forgetting Agatha Christie who got me interested in crime fiction so many years ago. They would be in the mix but it could well change
Too many to mention
My top one would be Peter James, but its such a tough choice
James Lee burke
I don’t have a favourite, too many good ones out there.
@David wow thanks
Chris Carter and Angela Marsons

Far too many to mention, it’s like asking me to chose my favourite child! I love Louise Penny, Chris Carter and Peter James but there’s so so many more xx
