Alexander Soderberg! Alexander Soderberg (2013)
The Andalucian Friend: A Novel. Crown
Promoted as best crime novel of 2013, the Andalucian Friend is an offbeat thriller about rival drug gangs. The book is not bad - but for my taste, the plot is too convoluted, the action is implausible, the police is too corrupt and the characters are stereotypes. Not as good as the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo! More...
J. Robert Kennedy! J. Robert Kennedy (2011)
The Protocol (A James Acton Thriller, Book #1) CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform
In this conspiracy thriller archeologist Professor James Act(i)on gets away from a Seal Team that is chasing him. A bit thin on logic - but plenty of furious, fast-paced action, scores of victims and buckets of gore mixed with some humor and a little romance. A good read. More...
Cormac McCarthy! Cormac McCarthy (2005)
No Country for Old Men. Knopf
Mixture of action thriller, Western and psychological drama. Starting with an antelope hunt near the Rio Grande the story proceeds into a man-on-the-run thriller, populated by a psychopatic killer and an elderly Sheriff, who is smarter than most, because he knows his limitations. Made into movie by the Coen brothers! More...

Dean Koontz! Dean Koontz (2003)
Watchers. Berkley
Genetic manipulation has created two extraordinary animals: one is a dog, named Einstein, the other is a murderous hybrid called "The Outsider." They are hunted down by the government and a professional killer. The plot developments occasionally seem a bit forced. More...
William Goldman! William Goldman (2001)
Marathon Man. Ballantine Books
An epic, fast-paced thriller with just enough humor to prevent you from getting overwhelmed by the violence, evil and sadism. Made into a movie with Dustin Hoffman. More...

First published in 1915, the Thirty-Nine Steps is the story of an ordinary fellow who gets caught up in a dramatic and dangerous plot. The book was made into a popular thriller by Alfred Hitchcock.
