I'll join you with this one or whichever ones work.
Right the book with the most action that I am reading is Kris Longknife Mutineer which is a little annoying for how many statements are repeated to make sure we get the drift - similar to "It was loud, and I do mean it was loud" but the story is picking up and the spaceship is interesting because it changes shape to suit situations and nobody can find their belongings.
I am also reading The D-Day Kit Bag which is nonfiction but filled with action and great pictures of actual plans, maps, materiel and letters.
I see that you like mysteries as well as SciFi... I wonder if you could recommend any SciFi mysteries that are decent reads.
I have read a few such as The Naked Sun by Asimov which was ok... I actually think it would make a great movie. Another I liked was The Automatic Detective by A. Lee Martinez (I should find more of his books as this was a great book.)
Are there any you really liked?
John Stith is another author I like, Manhattan Transfer is an old favorite of mine, but he wrote some sci-fi/mysteries as well. Deep Quarry is the only one I've read, but it was enjoyable.
Leviathan Wakes by James S. A. Corey is another good sci-fi/mystery (and current tv series, The Expanse on SyFy). I haven't kept up with the rest of the series, but the writing is quite good. I definitely intend to read the rest of the books.
In addition to the novel there is a well written Introduction done by Bernard Cornwell of Dick Sharpe fame. this is the 5th book of the Hornblower series but in fact is the first one that Forrester actually wrote. There are a lot of tid bits on Forrester's life that make excellent reading as well.
I just finished The Cold Between and it turned out to be a really interesting science fiction mystery. Sort of military sci-fi, but light on the battles. Really more of a mystery set in space, with decent action and tension, a little romance and very character driven. This one comes out in a couple months.
Now it's back to Overwatch by Matthew Betley which is really a pedal to the metal action book.
