Not really into the military whatnot, but I think "Odd Thomas" by Dean Koontz is one of the best books I've ever read. Very well written and entertaining. Koontz paints pictures with words.
thank book is great i have it along with the sequel Forever Odd is also a great read. Dean Koontz 'The Face' was really good.
I also read James Patterson's Alex Cross novels and really enjoy them....Along with Iris Johansen and her Eve Duncan forensic sculpting novels. The Jason Bourne books from Robert Lundlum are excellent. And I like a lot of novels from John Grisham.
I agree. I liked Odd Thomas a lot. I didnt know there was a sequel though...might have to check that out.
Koontz, Patterson, Grisham, Baldacci, Crichton, Brown, and Deaver are some of my fiction staples right now.
If you like Grisham then let me recommend some courtroom novels that are amazing.
Steve Martini has written a series of books about a lawyer Paul Madriani and each book is really good. You can start with compelling evidence which is the first. Here is a list of the rest in order: Prime witness, Undue Influence, The judge, The Attorney, The Jury. There are 2 more that I havent read yet that come after these. Check out the first one and if you like it then continue.
Scott Turow has also written some great courtroom novels. you may have seen Presumed Innocent (Harrison Ford) but if not then get the book. Its great. He wrote some sequels (same town, some same characters) to it: Burden of proof, Pleading guilty, Laws of our fathers, Personal injuries, and reversible errors. All are really good but I liked the last the best.
These are courtroom novels. If you want other types I can recommend more. I read a hell of a lot.
