Have you tried Alistair MacLean yet?

I haven't read anything by him, but I paged through "Where Eagles Dare" today. He seems to use a lot of Swifties (can't think of the correct name for it off the top of my head). ("I will kill you now," Joe screamed murderously.) But, as I like the genre, I will probably read his books eventually.

BTW, Follett has a new one coming out set during WWII that looks pretty good. (I still haven't read "Jackdaws" yet.)
