The current "Thomas Harris" alikes .....

Well the first couple of Patterson Alex Cross novels where ok but now the old dear defies medical science with her age and he churns the books out quicker than I can read the cover blurb

I like val mcdermid and prefer British based novels

Anyone any suggestions on what else to try

Stuart Macbride...especially Flesh House.

Chris Carter isnt doing a bad job if you get can past his 'and you wont believe what happened then' style of writing.

The first two Mo Hayder books, Birdman and the Treatment are pretty amazing. But nothing after that for some reason.

Cheers
I know I read the first Mo Hayder and can't quite remember what I disliked but never bothered with the second

Chris Carter will seek out
Stuart McBride have certainly enjoyed in past

Also add Jo Nesbo to the list.

Very good series of books if a little on the grim side.
