I mentioned the other day that I’ve been binge-watching a lot of TV. It’s all been crime procedurals like NCIS or SVU. I’ve hardly read a thing since last month’s Readathon, literally only finished one book, and that one a reread (In the Woods – Tana French). Again, another crime procedural. Apparently, this is what I’m in the mood for. Unfortunately, I only really know of two procedural series: French’s series, and the Cormoran Strike series by Robert Galbraith aka JK Rowling. I’d like to listen to something new, however, so I’d love some recommendations, if anyone knows any.
Looking specifically for crime/detective novels rather than thrillers, not too gory but also not too cozy-mystery or formulaic, and well-known enough that I can get copies from my library. If there are audio versions, that’s even better. There are a couple authors I’ve heard about but I’m not sure if any of these would fit the criteria – Janet Evanovich, Louise Penny, Michael Connelly, Elizabeth George, JD Robb, Jane Harper, Cara Hunter. Anyone familiar with any of their series? I’m just not terribly familiar with the genre and thought I’d reach out to my book blogging community for suggestions before I go in blind!
