Ryan Melmoth by Sarah Perry The Familiars by Stacey Halls  The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White   The winner will be chosen via the usual random selection process in one week.

Looking for recommendations...

Recommended Posts

I'm a big fan of whodunit that has police and detectives putting clues together to find the serial killer. I love Michael Connelly, Robert Crais, Jeffery Deaver and one of Jefferson Parker's Blue Hour and looking for something similar to these.

The Anniversary Man by R J Ellory is about the search for a serial killer and I would recommend it, very good. If you like Crais and Connelly you could try John Sandford and James Lee Burke who both write an excellent series around a police detective.

Thank you.

 

I looked John Sandford and the Lucas Davenport sounds good to me. It will be my next read as soon as I finish what I'm reading now.

You could try Nelson DeMille. He's a mystery writer. Several of his books revolve around a police officer or an investigator for the military. I would suggest The General's Daughter or Up country.
