Heart-Shaped Box, written by Stephen King's son Joe Hill, is sort of a mystery/thriller/horror combination.

There's Tanenbaum's Butch Karp series, if you haven't read any of them, or Lee Child's Reacher series. If you are into darker mysteries, Andrew Vacchs [or Vachhs] has quite a few set in the underside of NYC that are rather engrossing - sort of like watching a train wreck about to happen, you know you can't stop it but you can't look away, either. I think the last one was Down in the Zero or something like that.

I like Tess Gerritsen - especially the books with Jane Rizzoli and Maura Isles.

I just read the new Scarpetta, by Patricia Cornwell. It was quite good. also, the new james patterson, "Cross Country" fairly typical. You might check out Steve Berry. He has some good books. I read them in order since they use the same character. the one called the Amber Room was quite interesting. He uses historical facts, weaves in spy stuff, murder and mystery!! Brad Thor is also quite good. I have only read the first book, The Lions of Lucerne. If you enjoy historical fiction, check out anything by John Jakes!

One of the best adventure books written in the last 10 years is non-fiction; "Shadow Divers" about scuba divers finding a German WWII sub sunk off of New Jersey. The sub was supposedly sunk off Gibraltar during the latter part of the war! It's got the best parts of suspense, detective story and adventure yarn.

Along the same lines read; (I think the title is) "Black May", or possibly "May 1943", which is the month that the allies began sinking German subs faster than Germany could build them.

As the forward in "Shadow Divers" states; no modern military force has suffered the high losses that the Kriegsmarine did in the last two years of the war and continued fighting.

The Whole Truth.

Allegedly fictional account of how a 'perception management' organization can twist truth, invent facts, and manipulate nations into going to war with one another so that industrial firms can make and sell ever more weapons. Part James Bond and part current events. Couldn't put it down.

Amazon review: http://www.amazon.com/Whole-Truth-Da...0345820&sr=1-1
