I prefer my mysteries to be a bit dark and creepy, and I am always hoping for a good twist that I didn't expect. And it's always a plus when the characters and detectives are interesting people and have story lines and arcs and actual emotions.

I have an entire bookshelf of mystery novels (when I go to the thrift store, I pretty much grab everything), so I have a bunch of book series that I'm afraid to start because I don't know if they will be good!

I am a fan of series by:

Karin Slaughter
Tess Gerritsen
Tana French
Gillian Flynn
Stieg Larsson

Authors I am curious about:
Patricia Cornwell
Jonathan Kellerman
Kathy Reichs
Lee Child
Harlan Coben
Jeffery Deaver (I enjoyed The Bone Collector, is he worth continuing?)
Linwood Barclay (I've read No No Time for Goodbye, are any of his others good?)

And of course I have a bunch of PD James and Dorothy Sayers, but always end up reaching for something else.

I would love stand alone book recommendations as well, so feel free to mention those too!

Thanks to everyone who chimes in!

For SF and F with queer folk

I'm a Cherryh addict--and Foreigner is part of a 13+ book series now . . .
Cherryh has queer folk in Cyteen and the sequel, Regenesis.
Also in Rimrunners.
Try Nicola Griffith; she also writes mysteries (technically, I think they're thrillers; I'm not really sure of the distinctions).
Elizabeth Bear
Elizabeth Lynn (SF and F both)
Samuel Delany (later stuff is crammed full of critical theory and such, can be overwhelming)
Joanna Russ
Google Lambda Award for more
I think with Lackey, she's really writing for the YA market a lot of the time.

Then why not read a book? I like Scandinavian crime thrillers and I recommend Steig larsson's "the Girl with the Dragon tattoo" and the following books. I also like Henning mankell and his Kirt Wallander series. I also really like Jo Nesbo and his Harry Hole detective series beginning with "The redbreast". Well written, good character development and good, rich plots. Nice work.

Here is a blurb on the first book in Fearless

2004-11-14 21:38:32 by Inigo_Montoya

Fearless introduces us to Gaia Moore, a girl born without the gene for fear. Gaia's mother was murdered, and her father, Tom Moore, a famous covert antiterrorist mastermind, is in hiding. Now 17 years old, Gaia is living in New York City with Tom's CIA friend, George, and his wife, Ella. Gaia is a prime target for terrorists and is in constant danger, but she is trained in all forms of combat so she can defend herself. Like Buffy and Xena, Gaia Moore is a force.
But she is also a high school student, trying to be like everyone else. As her friendships develop, we see that Gaia is in many ways a typical teen -- when she's not busy getting herself into and out of dangerous situations, righting wrongs, avenging hurts, and solving mysteries
