Hi it’s Dean Hill.
I’m a bit of a reader. Actually a lot of a reader . A habit I learned from Dear old Dad many years ago. I will read anything, often 2 or three times. When my favorite authors have a new release announced I am on it like ink on paper.
If these names are new to you look them up! Buy their books. You will not be disappointed!
Here are the 5 authors I turn off the phone for:
I have read everything he has written, most of them more than once. Harry Bosch the LA cop/ detective with a heart of gold is my favourite but Connelly has created several other vivid characters who often get their own books and often bump into Bosch. The Bosch tv series is quite good too. Connelly has a new book coming in November
Key characters are detectives/ badasses Elvis Cole and supreme badass/ good guy Joe Pike but Crais has written other books with other fully realized characters. Plots are excellent. I have read them all. New Crais in November
His early novels are signs of great writer just warming up. He really has come into greatness with books featuring bad ass/ smart mouth John Corey. Solving crimes, catching terrorists and cracking wise throughout. Once again, I’m up late with De Mille. There is usually a substantial wait between books.
Creator of Jack Reacher. This guy paints action and plot incredibly well. I am a giant fan and so is Tom Cruise who has optioned all of the Reacher novels. A new one is due soon.
The great mind behind Bob Lee Swagger aka Bob the Nailer. Bob is possibly the world’s best shooter and as it turns out a damn smart detective and deadly force. If you are interested but know nothing about guns Hunter will educate you on many aspects while you are being greatly entertained. His plots are always excellent. This is great stuff!
