klon, check out the section called "If you liked this book" in the Book lovers links thread above.  There are some websites that use different methods of grouping/tagging authors to help you find ones you'll like based on what you've read.

Have you read any Patricia Cornwell? I think her most recent books are lousy, but the early ones, with the ME detective (blanking on her name) were good.

You might take a look at Aimee and David Thurlo
Wife's tastes seem similar to yours and she enjoys these.
Another option might be Lisa Scottoline.

Boyd Morrison, no question. You can get all three of his books for $4.17 and each one is worth that alone. Sadly, he only has three works out not thirty. His books, especially The Ark and The Palmyra Impact, are as gripping page turners as anything out there. Any publisher that locks him in is going to have the next Patterson/Clancy/Grisham writing for them. Your author search will be running again in just a few days as you'll burn through his three in no time. Enjoy.

The early Cornwall (Kay Scarpetta) forensic mysteries are great (something changed in her writing with Black Notice and I haven't enjoyed them since). Another fairly new forensic mystery series is the Body Farm books by Jefferson Bass. The entire Kathy Reichs (Tempe Brennan) starting with Death Du Jour is my favorite forensic mystery series, even better than Cornwall IMHO.

I second Boyd Morrison. I've read The Ark and Palmyra Impact and they were both excellent. I'm not very far into the third one yet, but am anxious to get on with it. I can't wait for his next offering! ;D

Actually, Deja Dead is the first one, for those like me that are anal about starting with the first book of a series. :D

Kay Scarpetta. The early books are really good, I read them all last year or the year before. Like you said though, the recent ones were lousy & more noticeable when you read them back to back and notice errors & weird personality changes. The very last one, Scarpetta, was okay though and almost back to form. But that gives, what? about a dozen of early ones that are well worth reading.

For action type novels, I recommend- Clive Cussler (especially earlier than 5 years ago). Jack DuBrol; Michael DiMercurio (submarines), Richard Henrick (subs), Bart davis (subs), Patrick Robinson (naval thrillers);  Also, two older classic writers- James Clavell (Tai Pan, Noble House), and Wilbur Smith.

You might try Nevada Barr. The main character is Anna Pigeon, a park ranger, and there is always a muystery to solve. I find them fun and interesting mostly.

go to literature-map.com, when you put in the name of an author you like it brings up lots of authors with similar styles. the closer to your authors name, the more similar that author is supposed to be. some of their choices are interesting, and i'm not always sure that i would put them together, but any source for new authors is good to know. ;D

I find my new authors right here on kb.  There are a lot of good recommendations in the Book Corner.  That's how I found Boyd Morrison's books.

I second Wilbur Smith.  Have you tried Lincoln Preston and Douglas Child?  Cabinet of Curiosities was my favorite. :)

C.L. Vaughn sounds good too, The Man Beneath Lake Union.
