If you like suspense and thrillers

Thanks for e-mailing the Central Rappahannock Regional Library for a Book Match. You did not specify a book, but you did mention that you were looking for suspense/thrillers. Since there are bunches and bunches of different kinds of suspense/thriller books, if you could give us a specific title to match, or let us know what elements you like, we can give you a better selection! As is, since your request is general, I can give you some general recommendations:

Take a look at our Mystery and Thriller booklists at our Reading Read booklists website -

Here are a few suggestions for authors of suspense and/or thrillers:

Humorous, Fast-paced - David Baldacci, Stephen J. Cannell, Stuart Woods

Legal - John Grisham, Steve Martini, Lisa Scottolini

Medical/Scientific - Michael Crichton, Tess Gerritsen, Robin Cook, Richard Preston

I hope this helps!
