Top Ten Tuesday – Police Procedural Favorites

Posted June 4, 2019 by Bonnie in Top Ten Tuesday / 4 Comments

When I was a teenager, I read a lot of police procedural novels. This segued into a love of mysteries in general, but police procedurals were my jam because I harbored dreams of one day being an FBI agent or a forensic scientist… I would have even settled for a private investigator. Basically, just your average badass that puts bad guys away. While my life has not gone as planned, and I don’t read nearly as many mysteries as I used to, I still have a deep love for police procedurals and really oughta incorporate them more into my reading. These are some of my favorites from over the years.

The Coffin Dancer (Lincoln Rhyme #2) by Jeffery Deaver
The Last Policeman (The Last Policeman #1) by Ben H. Winters
The Dry (Aaron Falk #1) by Jane Harper
The Face Of Deception (Eve Duncan #1) by Iris Johansen
Mayhem (Dr. Thomas Bond #1) by Sarah Pinborough

Blindsighted (Grant County #1) by Karin Slaughter
The Child Finder (Naomi Cottle #1) by Rene Denfeld
The Thousand-Dollar Tan Line (Veronica Mars #1) by Rob Thomas, Jennifer Graham
The House of Silk (Sherlock Holmes #1) by Anthony Horowitz
The Power of the Dog (Power of the Dog #1) by Don Winslow

  1. The only one I’ve read here is the Veronica Mars one and it was really good. I have hard great things about Jane Harper and I’ve read other things by Slaughter and found them to be really good. I keep meaning to give Mayhem a try so now you’ve reminded me again that I’ve never gotten around to it.
