Just wonderin'...most of the thriller writers I've thought of are male. Who are the fab femme thriller writers out there? Inquiring minds wanna know. Well, at least this one does!

Without a doubt, in my mind, Gayle Lynds is one of the best and, I believe, one of the first to get a big thriller out there.
How's about M J Rose? I found the Halo Effect a rollicking read.
Being an Old Guy, I remember Helen MacInnes. Some really fine books. The Venetian Affair, Double Image, Above Suspicion. Check 'em out.
I'm getting up there in age, too, and I agree. As far as I know, I read everything Helen McInnes wrote, or at least did my best to read it all, but quite a while ago. Excellent books they were, indeed.

Val McDermid and Tess Gerritsen are faves, but I also like Deborah LeBlanc even though most people consider her books to be more horror than thriller.
Ooh, LeBlanc sounds interesting. I'm always on the look out for cross-genre stuff (horror/crime, paranormal/crime, whatever-the-hell-they're-calling-it-now/crime). I'll have to check out her work.
I met PJ Parrish, at the Mystery Writers convention in Miami Beach in April. Didn't know them from Adam. I usually start from a writers' first works---if I'm curious.

I started reading 'A Thousand Bones'---the other night. I do believe it's a thriller. They are two sisters who write from different states, Florida & Mississippi. What do I know?
