My Top Ten Modern Novels

I’m hearing folks will spending lots of time indoors the next few days (weeks?), so I thought I’d compile a couple of genre reading lists. Here’s the first:

1. The Straw Men, Michael Marshall

2. The Snowman, Joe Nesbø

3. The Charm School, Nelson DeMille

4. The Secret History, Donna Tartt

5. The Leopard, Joe Nesbø

6. Spy Line, Len Deighton

7. Broken Shore, Peter Temple

8. Hannibal, Thomas Harris

9. The Black Ice, Michael Connelly

10. Running Blind, Lee Child

Author: P. Andrew Sandlin

I am founder & president of the Center for Cultural Leadership, core faculty of the H. Evan Runner International Academy for Cultural Leadership and De Yong Distinguished Visiting Professor of Culture and Theology, Edinburg Theological Seminary, and an ordained minister in the Fellowship of Mere Christianity. I am happily married to Sharon Lynn Sandlin (nee Habedank) and have five adult children and four grandchildren.

  1. I missed this when I was recovering from an illness, but I notice a trend. Also, Len Deighton is one of my favorites! He tends not to get as much love in the states.
