I read the first 2 Dark Tower books and The Stand as a teenager. I liked The Stand but not Dark Tower. Haven't tried any of his other books.
Not sure if this falls into the style of book you're seeking, but check out "Fear Nothing" and "Seize the Night" by Dean Koontz. Personally, I love the audio versions with Keith Szarabajka reading. I really want Koontz to finish the third book he's reportedly been writing for almost the past decade.
