I like Michael Connelly's books.  He has written more about homicide detective Harry Bosch, but also about Lincoln Lawyer Micky Haller, Bosch's half-brother and a few books with both characters.

Barry Eisler's books remind me a little of the Jack Reacher stories, except that John Lone is some kind of assassin.

How many are in that series? I am looking soon to start up something new.


Bump....
23 Harry Bosch, 5 Micky Haller, 2 Jack McEvoy and a bunch of other stuff.  He's very proific.

Both Michael Connelly and Lee Childs have new books out in the past few months.

My two favorite authors that meld lots of actual facts / history into great stories (similar to Dan Brown):
Steve Berry
James Rollins

Two of my favorites also!
They are so divorced from their own interests that even when their own security and that of their children is finally compromised, they do not seek to avert the danger themselves but cross their arms and wait for the nation as a whole to come to their aid. Yet as utterly as they sacrifice their own free will, they are no fonder of obedience than anyone else. They submit, it is true, to the whims of a clerk, but no sooner is force removed than they are glad to defy the law as a defeated enemy. Thus one finds them ever wavering between servitude and license.
Alexis de Tocqueville
