BOOK/AUTHOR ideas for 2019

BOOK/AUTHOR ideas, please I love gritty crime, the more gruesome the better. Page turning thrillers. What I loathe are romance or bodice rippers, angst-driven characters and cosy mysteries. Having said that I adore Outlander. My favourite author is Chris Carter. I love some of Candice Fox, but loathe her Harriet Blue series. I enjoy James Patterson and love both Wilbur Smith and Jeffery Deaver. John Sanderford is another good read. I use to read a lot of post-apocalyptics but find good ones hard to find, so would love some fresh ideas. One of my favourite books this year as a stand-alone was Garden of Beasts by Jeffery Deaver, so dystopic is appealing to me especially as my favourite tv show is The Man in the High Castle. I also enjoy sci-fi but are beyond fussy, must be gritty not Star Trek like. I adore Game of Thrones but am yet to meet another fantasy book I even like. As you can see ecliptic to the max and that list probably confused the hell out of most people, but please do not let it put you of making suggestions. I have read 168 books this year, so lots of ideas, oh and I tend to binge entire series or authors.
many thanks.

I would recommend any Mark Greaney’s books. Technically these are thrillers not mysteries but they are riveting. Also, if you haven’t already read it, I highly recommend John Sandford’s Holy Ghost and Twisted Prey

Also, I just read Ian Rankin’s Tooth and Nail. I very much liked this one and apparently they just keep getting better.

I enjoyed all of Ian Rankin's Rebus novels.

I also liked Maurizio de Giovanni's Comissario Ricciardi books.

Thank you, I binged all John Sandford this year and enjoyed them. I am going to try a couple of Mark Greaney's books, I love the movie Hunt for Red October, at the very least I know my husband will binge them

I will be Binging Ian Rankins in 2019 thank you both for that one. Maurizio de Giovanni intrigues me, so will try that in 2019

Thank you for reminding me about these, I have the books but had totally forgotten, so straight into my 2019 reading list.
