Mysteries, Suspense, Medical Thrillers, Legal Thrillers, and True Crime

You will see that this list of authors is alphabetical with two notable exceptions:  the first two on the list, in my opinion deserve special status.  I have not attempted to list every book by each author.  If you click on an author's name you will be taken to that author's official website or to another article about the author.
