Have just started The Crime Trade by Simon Kernick, not sure about it yet. It's about drug crime lords and the sting that's gone wrong in London. Not really my favourite subject material but highly recommended so thought I would give it a go.


Yes, I missed her too, eccentric and very interesting, endearing character, looks like a film is coming with Reece Weatherperson...
I loved Eleanor Oliphant and was sad when I finished it.

If anyone likes mystery/psycological/detective stuff, try Harlan Coben. I share my Kindle Library with a friend and she had one of his books called " The Woods". I read it when I had run out of my own stuff (she loves vampire, zombie stuff and I don't so I had pre judged it) - I have now bought every book he has written :gigglesnshit: So good!

Also "We need to talk about Kevin" is an amazing book.


The Woods was really good, I've read a fair few Coben and he hasn't disappointed.

I saw you were going to look up Jo Nesbo, his latest The Thirst I thought was his best.

Belinda Bauer is a brilliant author of thrillers too. Rubbernecker is a good place to start. I'm currently reading her Darkside. Her characterisations are very believable


Thanks for the recomendations :thumbsup:

Have you read Nicci French "Frieda Klein" series? They're really good. Great cast of characters. I have the final one on pre order.


Sorry, I missed this. I love the Nicci French duo and have read a couple out of sequence. I should grab them all and try in the right order.

@Malumute, is that Karin Slaughter a stand alone? I enjoyed one of hers I read but it was a mid serial so I was a little lost with some of the relationships.

I believe the Karin Slaughter IS a stand alone. It was on the bestsellers stand in Tesco. £4.
