I've been interested to get suggestions and recommendations for authors, series and novels relating to crime (true or fictional), forensic investigation and gripping detective type stories. Perhaps in the areas of police work rather than horror or the supernatural.
I've always been fascinated with TV programs and films with the investigation type element, especially using forensic science or deduction to solve crimes. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and the fictional character Sherlock Holmes is an obvious example but I was looking for something more modern and intense. As I said, fictional or true doesn't really matter. I understand this is hardly pleasant subject matter, so apologies for that.
Do any of you read such material or have an interest in this type of subject matter? Thanks.
