'The Blue Nowhere' by Jeffrey Deaver ... it's a good one. He writes the Lincoln Rhymes novels too, character Denzel plays in The Bone Collector. I've read a couple of his books, they are exciting and I'm not much of a book reader.

I'm currently reading Michael Creighton's latest book, "State of Fear". Its' a little bit of a departure from his previous books in that it occurs over time and in different locals. Creighton generally writes his books in real-time, ala "24".

This book is reading a whole better than his last few books. I was a little disappointed in Airframe and Prey.

Creighton's books are also an easy read...I call them "train books", because I can get distracted on the train and pickup right where I left off. For example, I found that trying to read any of the Master and Commander - Aubrey/Maturin series of books is difficult on the train to read.
