LTRE1839, what's your opinion? Comment below:

Vince Flynn - Term Limits is his best novel imo (though the Rapp series is wholly phenomenal as well), Transfer of Power, and Consent to Kill especially.

Tom Clancy - Without Remorse or Clear and Present Dqnger. Rainbow Six is solid too.

Jack Carr- Terminal List series (going to be an Amazon Prime show starting next month)

Steven Pressfield - different genre somewhat but Gates of Fire is amazing historical fiction. (About Thermopylae)

Mark Greaney- the Gray Man series

Stephen Hunter- Point of Impact (inspired the movie Shooter), Black Light, and Time to Hunt.

Yeah I didn't mean to limit his books to that list. I read Term Limits years ago - I think I've read all his books, it's been awhile.

I am hot and cold when it comes to Tom Clancy, some of his books are waaay to long and seem to be filled with 100s of pages of filler it seems. Red Storm Rising might be one of the best books ever written, it's one of my favorites, and eerily prescient, but then other books like Executive Orders just seem way to long (like 500 pages too long). Without Remorse is also fantastic, and I might read it again this summer. I've thought about digging intoΒ Rainbow Six, is it more action or political?Β Β

Both. It's politically driven action. Rainbow Six is kind of eerily prescient for today too if that's any motivation to give it a read.

Seconding the above post for the Jack Carr Terminal List series.Β 

The Gabriel Allon series by Daniel Silva

Scot Harvath series by Brad Thor

If you're willing to depart from the thriller genre into fantasy, I can't recommend the Stormlight Archive by Brandon Sanderson enough. Plus, at nearly 5,100 pages you'll have enough content for however long you stay at the beach.Β

Also, I have to recommend a fellow Alum's book, "Lords of Discipline" if you haven't read it already. Conroy's writing style is one of a kind.Β

I have a book signed by Pat Conroy - "My Losing Season" - "The Boo" signed it too. And a bunch of basketball players from the team. I went snowboarding in WV and left it at the resort hotel. Someone found it and they contacted my school and found out my current address and sent it there. Crazy how nice some people are. Now Pat Conroy and The Boo are dead, but I still have his signed book.Β
