If you want a laugh and off the wall whodunit books, Janet Evanovich is hysterical. When I read her books, I will bust out laughing periodically which garners strange looks from my husband. When I start one of her books, I have to finish the whole thing in one sitting. She is easily one of my top 3 favorites right now.
I just looked up Michael Connelly and his books look like they are right up my alley. Thanks for the list, Tre.
