Harlan Coben alternatives?

I was wondering, what would you recommend I read, when I really, really like the style of Harlan Coben? His books are mainly thrillers, but they're also rather funny, with witty conversations and other nonsense that makes you laugh out loud at times, and other times he really freaks you out.

I seem to be reading in circles lately, so I'm looking for new authors.

Other stuff I read is F.P.Wilson, Koontz, Lee Child and Vince Flynn ... you might say there's a certain pattern

G.M Ford He has two detective series. The first one is the Leo Waterman series. These are hilarious romps that involve Leo using his own home turf gang of drunken street bums. The first of the series is named "Who in Hell Is Wanda Fuca?", which I guess is a bit of an inside joke for Pacific Northwesters. The rest of the series is just as good, but the last one "The Deader The Better" is a bit darker.

Then Ford has his second series involving free lance author Frank Corso. This series has its share of humor, but is much darker in tone.

I would say I enjoyed the Leo Waterman series a bit more, but the Frank Corso series is much more in line with what I have read of Harlan Coben. Excellent stuff.
