    I tend to like the amateur detective sub-genre. For that, the Myron Bolitar series (by Harlan Coben) is kind of fun. There are maybe 8-10 books, and there is a YA spin off with 3, I think.

    Myron is a sports agent and gets wrapped up in investigations of situations for his clients. The series is not super serious, but not as light and silly as, say... Janet Evonovich, which I find a bit vapid and definitely redundant.

    Oh, and it's maybe more mystery than crime but it is a bit of both. The Mary Russell series by Laurie R. King is fun and different. Mary partners with an older Sherlock Holmes and they solve mysteries/crime. I can't remember the name of the first book, but it the title had something to do with bees. I think there are 8 books in the series, if not more.

    I know this is SUUUUPer late, but I really enjoyed reading Tess Gerritsen's "The Surgeon" series. Her books spun off the Rizzoli and Isles tv show.

    I do actually have a few books by Laurie R. King. I really liked them. I gotta check out which ones I already have, but they are at my place and I'm at my parents' at the moment.

    Thanks for reminding me of her. I have a lot of her books already but not the newest one so I should get that. I love the books and I actually enjoy the show too

    Thanks for the suggestions. Gave me some stuff to read

    My mom was telling me I needed to start reading this series! She said the books are darker than the show.

    I'm not totally up to date on them, I think I only read like 4 of them because that's all my library had at the time. I really liked what I did get a chance to read, though, they definitely keep you on the edge of your seat.
