      Moving Day Coming Soon   01/11/2021

      As many of you know, we've been looking at changing hosts for a while now. This will allow us to access the tech support we need for the site and should speed up the forum as well as ironing out a few issues we've been having recently.    We are now signed up to the new hosting plan and can go ahead with the move as soon as the new hosts have everything they need (which is currently being sorted!). The forum should not be offline for more than a day during the switch and hopefully it won't even take that long. I don't have an exact time or day for the move yet but this is an early warning to expect some downtime soon.   When we are offline, no matter how briefly, you can follow the forum twitter page (@bookclubforum) for updates.

Hi Adam, welcome to the forum! 

 

I thought Written in Bone by Simon Beckett was a good one and I have one on my shelf that someone else on this forum recommended, The Distant Echo by Val McDermid.

Off the top of my head I can recommend Jeffrey Deaver, Lisa Gardner, Nicci French, Simon Fitzek and Karin Slaughter. And I can second Hayley's suggestion of Val McDermid too. 

 

An interesting online tool you could try is Literature Map . You pop in the name of an author you have enjoyed, and it will 'float' names of similar authors around the original name. Can be a good way of finding new-to-you authors. :)

I absolutely love the Wallander books by Henning Mankell and would recommend them highly.

The Artemis File by Adam Loxley is one of the best thrillers I have read in ages. It's British and is a real page-turner with lots of pace, a cracking plot and really strong characterisation. Loxley's anti-hero 'Craven' makes Jack Reacher look like Cinderella!

The best crime thriller I have read for a long time is G.B.H. by Ted Lewis. Ted Lewis wrote the book Get Carter was based on. G.B.H. is better than that.
