Need Book Ideas!?

I'm an avid reader, and enjoy (among others) Stephen King, Dean Koontz, Robin Cook, & Laurien Berenson. I've pretty much read everything these guys (and gal) have written- any ideas on other similar authors? I'm not stuck mostly with mystery, I just seem to always end up there! thanks!


I've read Patricia Cornwell, Michael Crighton, and James Patterson. Will have to check out the others. Thanks!

    I LOVE Jeffrey Deaver. I think he's way better than Dean Koontz or Stephen King, but that's just me. If you saw the movie Bone Collector, he actually wrote the book. The book is better (no surprise there) but I've really enjoyed everything of his that I've read. Just as soon as I think I've figured out whodunit, I find out I was completely wrong. Also try Patricia Cornwell, she's very good also.

    Jeffery Deaver is good, but better than the masters of horror. I doubt it.
