The best novel of all time (IMHO) [Way Better than what I found to be twisted and unrealistic book like Angles and Demons-(felt like reading Harry potter (ugh).] Davichi is good though.

Haven't read them in a while...
I'd say

1. Angels and Demons
2. Digital Fortress
3. The Da Vinci Code
4. Deception Point
5. The Lost Symbol
"Not all who wander are lost"

Good book.
I basically stick to the same few authors..


Nelson Demille-
Jeffery Archer
Michael Connelly
Vince Flynn -every once in a while
Daniel Silva-also here and there
John Grisham (older work is much better)
and David Baldacci whose books I like pretty consistently.

Grisham and Baldacci- I read every book they write.

 I didn't read Deception Point. Though I would put Digital Fortress after The Da Vinci code. The lost symbol would def go last, seems like he's past his prime.

Two of my alltime favs:
Bonfire of the vanities, Tom Wolfe. Or anything by Tom Wolfe.
Beach music by pat conroy.
