    The Remorseful Day. I have this one on my shelf. Like all of Dexter's Chief Inspector Morse novels, you should find it very enjoyable.

    Another very enjoyable series is Ian Rankin's novels featuring DI John Rebus. I think he's finished off the Rebus books but there is some speculation that he might start a new series featuring Rebus's partner - DS Siobhan Clarke. I'd love it if he did. In any case there are a number of Rebus books available and I can highly recommend them.

    Also try Peter Robinson's Inspector Alan Banks series - well worth a read.

    I also like Rankin novels, but my favorite one was a spy story, not Rebus, but cannot remember name of the book.

    Yes, I am with you on that. Love Rankin's Rebus. The novel you are talking about could be, Bleeding Hearts>

    Lee Child: Jack Reacher
    Harlan Coben: Myron Bolitar
    Jeffrey Deaver: Lincoln Rhyme
    Jonathan Kellerman: Dr. Alex Delaware
    Faye Kellerman: Peter Decker/Rina Lazarus
    James Patterson: Alex Cross
    Kathy Reichs: Temperance Brennan

    Mosely

    I'll toss a series into the mix. Walter Mosely's "Easy Rawlins" mystery series are some of the most interesting, well written out there.
    His story "Devil in a Blue Dress" was made into a gem of a movie a while back.
    They get better with each new story.

    Do you like a hearltyy person who fakes emotions to get away wit things,and cleans himself up,AND is a forensics officer?Did I mention he is a serial killer(himself) who kills other serial killers?

    If you like these things,Darkly Dreaming Dexter by Jeff Lindsay is for you.

    I also second the Harry Bosch series(First book is The Black Echo).I say you should read the Sean Dillion series(First book is Eye of The Storm ),which is a terrorist thriller,good characters,fast paced,and extremely fun.
