At first: my english is little bit worse, but I hope you understand it and correct me if it wrong.

Well, my favorite author is Barbara Wood, Stephenie Meyer and Joy Fielding, but they write novels with womens and her self-discovery (or dangerous lover) . I think, are good novels, but for crime is

Sephen King (what else?)
Simon Beckett
Akif Pirincci (when you like cats)
Donne Leon
Michael Crichton

and any more.... better.

Ciao, Mouse

Ruth Rendell is British mystery writer and has a ton of really good books out there. I got hooked on British mysteries starting with Peter Robinson's books.

Thank goodenss for this thread. I need a great mystery right now!
I really think it would make a difference whether your friend likes thrillers or "cozy" type mysteries. I like both.
Since she is sporty she might like the Nevada Barr series. Barr is a park ranger and a mystery author. She has a great style-complex enough without being tedious, character development without too much off the plot detail, real interesting inside stuff like firefighting, diving into Lake Superior and other adventuresome plots along with a good insight into the diversity of the national park system.
Greg Iles writes page turners(puts Grisham to shame).
The Agatha Raisin series by M.C. Beaton is a cozy genre--older but still man-crazy Agatha solves mysteries but the humor and style and the character of this irreverent amateur detective steal the show.

Anything by Robert Crais, particularly the Elvis Cole series. Start with The Monkey's Raincoat and work your way up to LA Requiem.
