Try Joe R. Lansdale, he is an unheralded genuis in my opinion.

I'll try them. I'm reading around, trying to find some authors to read when I get finished with Dean Koontz and Stephen King, whivh will inevitably happen very soon.

Read KISS THE GIRLS, which many people consider the best Alex Cross book.

I liked THE QUICKIE and JUDGE & JURY, two of his recent standalone novels.

You wouldn't. You would avoid this hack of a writer altogether. For good thrillers check out Michael Connelly, John D. MacDonald, and Peter Dickonson.
