Robert Ludlum has some decent ones. the Bourne series, Prometheus deception, Matarese Countdown. Robin Cook for medical thrillers. Coma is my all time favorite. Try getting your hands on Dennis Lehane's Shutter Island if possible. you'll love it specially if you haven't seen the movie.

if you like fantasy/mythology - then Game of Thrones.

Read all the Bourne series. Dont like Robin Cook, tried couple of novels, too much medicine. I have read most of Sydney Sheldon's books as well...

@Manu I saw the movie Shutter Island, was too gud. I guess reading book now is futile :( Did not know it was based on a book

Anyone heard of Erle Stanley Gardner, he is the author of "Perry Mason" series. Do read those novels. On average 200 pages per novel, very entertaining.

Seems "fredrick forsyth" is a good author. His books will be the next.

Will look into foundation series as well.

Any other books?

Thanks guys for the suggestions.

this may sound idiotic but have you read Sir Arthur conan doyle's Sherlock holmes short stories? I've found the entire 56 short stories(an old book) at local library ... was too good!

Agatha Christie , Erle Stanley Gardener , Doyle books are good. I have liked John Grisham books as well.

Agatha Christie seems like an old lady infront of sherlock (i have her novel -a caribbean mystery- in front of me as we speak ..err type)

John Grishams books are also nice but he talks a lot abt law

And Robin cook has too much medical stuff in his novels

But all the above authors are good
