In some cases this has led to reading more works by one of the authors.
Recently ran across this list of "books everyone should read". I've saved a copy of the google spreadsheet linked there and plan to use this to find things next:

I've not read that yet, actually (whew, dodged that one, good thing you didn't ask about Ulysses or Becket's trilogy, Molloy, Malone Dies, The Unnamable).

I read many of the same authors as you...Crais, Connelly, Burke (love all three) and some others....have you tried the other Connelly (John...his books are really dark, but well worth the effort). One of my favorites is Lawrence Block.

John Connolly is an excellent novelist, but it gets really really dark. I swear that every time one of his books was finished, my declaration was "never again" only to pickup another one later. He is very good.
Have you tried John Sandford? Greg Isles? Lee Child? All are excellent.
