If you like historical fiction with a time travel twist factored into the storyline, you would probably really enjoy reading Diana Gabaldon's "Outlander" series - there are 8 books in it now ( I think that's what is already in print - another is due sometime in the next few months I believe). I've them all multiple times - love her books.

Iris Johansen is another favourite author of mine. She writes more of the mystery / serial killer / thriller types, and has also written several really good books with her son - Roy Johansen. Her earlier books were mostly romantic historical fiction and I've enjoyed them too. I have most of her books I think now, and read them all once or twice a year.

If you get Inferno, let me know what you think of it.

I was re- reading Dan Brown's new book "Inferno". I enjoyed it even more this time than when I first read it.
