You just can't resist books by guys named Chris. I guess Joe just got lucky—or is his middle name Christopher? Wikipedia isn't saying.

If you enjoy Christopher Brookmyre you may well like Colin Bateman. Quite similar style, only with an Irish flavour rather than a Scottish one. Both are two of my "must read" authors.

I could add, without a specific name in mind, that controversial authors can be a must read from time to time.

Oh yep, love Bateman too. Especially the Mystery Man series. "So's your face!"

James Patterson used to be my go-to author, but his books started to lose my interest. I especially disliked when he co-wrote with other folks.

But! Stephen King to the rescue, along with Dean Koontz, Sophie Kinsella, John Grisham, Harlan Coben and Jodi Picoult. I've also began dipping my toes into books by indie authors, and Chris Reher and DC Bourone are swiftly rising on my go-to authors list.

GRMM of course, write like the wind, my desperation grows
I am also rediscovering a love for Stephen King. Not a great writer but a great story teller. All my once must reads are no more. I just lost interst in them and struggle to read them now, even Anne Rice was like hurry up get to the point woman, pure frustration now.
