  • OT: Authors similar to John Grisham, Tom Clancy, Clive Cussler, Stephen Hunter...help

    So I got the urge to start a new novel tonight, and I am wondering what you all suggest. I enjoy the military/mystery/legal thrillers the above authors write...Anyone got any suggestions for me?

    Robert Ludlum



    Larry Bond: These of his I read. He worked with Clancy on Red Storm Rising. Probably pretty dated now, but they were fun reads.



    Red Phoenix, 1990

    Vortex, 1991

    Cauldron, 1993

        Brad Thor. He's one of the most informed, tech savvy, writers out there. I would start by reading his first novel Lions of Lucerne. It isn't his best by any means, but the chronology is important. Trust me, you will love his stuff.

          Jack Higgins Sean Dillion series. Like an Irish Jason Bourne/Bond set in modern time with terrorist sub plots.

                  W. E. B. Griffen



                  He has a cop series, a couple of ww2 series, o.s.s. series, presidential series.

                  All in all, about 40 or so books.



                  Not as technical as clancy. Not as predictable as cussler.



                  Nelson demille. Has really great character development.

                  wrote the book "the general's daughter" which was made into a movie.

                  has about a dozen books.

                    I've never been able to finish a Le Carre book for some reason. Not enough action for me I guess.



                    Don't forget the granddaddy of modern spy novels--Ian Fleming. A big part of the reason that the Bond stories were as successful as they were was that he knew what he was talking about. The guy was pretty high up in British naval intelligence during WWII.

                        Good choices in here guys, exactly what I was looking for!



                        Also, if none of you have heard about Daniel Suarez, check his books out. He's only got 3 right now, but Daemon and Freedom are great books. If you are an IT guy, you will appreciate them. Hell even if you aren't, they are still great. Daemon is about a Video Game developer who writes a Daemon before he dies that ends up controlling a LOT of stuff. Very interesting, and even more crazy is it's all available technology, which means it could actually happen.

                          Check out Jo Nesbo. I started with the Leopard which was fantastic, but was like number 6 in the Harry Hole series. I read the first one and while quite good, it wasn't as good. I think he got better as he went a long. I recommended Leopard to a friend who loved it as well. Start there.

                            For military reads, Dale Brown. Mystery reads, Wilbur Smith, and he is one of the best storytellers alive. Legal reads, David Baldacci.

                              Fuuuuuck...I'll never have time to read all this stuf



                              A while ago I bought some "lots" off ebay. 44 Clancy book, 38 Cussler books, and 25 grisham books...I already had most of Stephen Hunter and Ludlums stuff...



                              I have plenty to read, but just wanted to see if there were some more Authors in these genres I was missing. Looks like there are lots
