Need help with book recommendations

Are there any decent web sites out there that allow me to put in my fav books / authors and get back in return recommendations of what to read next ?

I like crime novels, but only those that have (a) a grounding in reality (b) UK based and (c) fairly recent (have just finished all the Simon Kernick novels)

Other authors who I am a fan of would be James Herbert, Lee Child and Matthew Reilly

Althought there are various sites like http://bookseer.com/

... they sometimes throw up odd suggestions.

A better option is just to go to Amazon and browse the "Other people also bought ..." suggestions.

i've used the Amazon.co.uk idea before..........

And with customer reviews you can ususally get more of an idea what a book is about rather then just the blurb on the back
