I like alot of the mystery writers, John Sanford, Nelson Demille, Robert Parker, but when it comes to suspense and intrique Andrew Klavan is the best. He's also a great narrator.

Andrew Klavan tells a ripping yarn about a smalltime hood who is seemingly given a new face and a new chance to start his life over, but is actually being used by unseen forces for their own deadly ends. Set against the backdrop of an unnamed city deep in urban decay (sort of post-Katrina New Orleans, but not named as such), it manages to merge elements of thriller, mystery, and political intrigue into a mix that's somewhere between The Wire and 3 Days of the Condor, and comes off as one of the freshest novels I've listened to all year.
On the narration: Klavan's voice is spot on (for all but the female parts), and if he weren't such a darned good writer, I'd suggest a career as a book narrator. A real pleasure to listen to.
