I've read Vanish and Pandora's Clock. Really, really good. I loved Pandora's Clock! One of my favorite books. It combined aviation thriller and medical thriller - 2 of my favorite genres. Enjoy!

I read a lot of thrillers, and I don't think I've done any of the ones on your list. Thanks for the new choices! :)

If you're interested in a good terrorist thriller for the challenge, I can recommend Some Kind of Angel by Melvin Harter. It's a short read, but really fast paced, and keeps you guessing right to the end.
