Thanks for checking out the list. I hope you decide to check some of them out.

The coolest thing is that 8 of the 11 authors on the book list have responded to the list either on Twitter or Facebook.

I really liked that Tokyo Motor Fist album. Hope it's not a one-off project like so many supergroups are. The Pride of Lions was also pretty good.

As far as melodic rock/AOR goes, I would also like to nominate "One Desire" and "Lionville." Imho, those beat out anything else from the genre in 2017. Check out these songs:

YC, I became a big fan of the mystery/thriller genre about 10 years ago -- I mean more so than my occasional readings before then -- and I have a lot of catching up to do. I appreciate your lists and reviews.

I had no idea the Mitch Rapp series was continuing. I recall reading one during a UConn-Notre Dame game in Gampel Pavilion, I was so engrossed. Do you really think the current author captures Vince Flynn?

Thanks for your list. I love thrillers but haven't read any of these, so always good to discover new possibilities.

I've read about Lionville in a couple of British rock magazines but never checked them out. Thanks for the links. I will look at those soon!

Glenn,

The Mitch Rapp series has done three books with Kyle Mills as the mainly sole writer. (The first book had about a page and a half of material that was all Vince Flynn had done before passing away).

There's a contract for three more books by Mills.

This is a good thing because his work on the series has been outstanding. You really don't feel like there is an author change going on at all.

I get into new authors from blog posts, interviews, reviews by others and other assorted ways so I'm glad that my list can possibly introduce you to new authors to read.

By the way, it isn't due out until February I believe, but the Dennis Palumbo novel "Head Wounds" is outstanding!
