Fans of fast-paced, gritty mysteries may appreciate both the Dave Robicheaux novels and the Virgil Flowers mysteries. The former are a bit more hard-boiled, while the latter offer some humor amid the violence. -- Rebecca Sigmon
Featuring police detectives, these novels are both fast-paced and compelling. The Flowers mysteries tend to be violent (there's humor, too), but both series embrace the sinister qualities of their rural settings in North Carolina (Richter) and Minnesota (Flowers). -- Mike Nilsson
Though the Virgil Flowers mysteries are considerably more violent than the humorous crime novels featuring Andrew Yancy, both offer imaginative writing, quirky characters, plenty of wit, weird crimes, and rule-bending protagonists. -- Shauna Griffin
While Harry Bosch works outside the establishment and Virgil Flowers is part of it, both men solve dark, violent crimes. Their worlds are gritty and seedy, offering similar reads. -- Rebecca Sigmon
These fast-paced suspense novels are plot-driven and compelling, concentrating on the exploits of tough-minded detectives. While both series feature abundant crime, the Virgil Flowers mysteries are grittier, more overtly violent, and quite funny. -- Mike Nilsson
Each set in northern Minnesota, these compelling dark mystery series are populated by quirky characters, malevolent bad guys, and protagonists who like to make their own rules. -- Shauna Griffin

Important differences exist, however: the Minnesota-set Virgil Flowers mysteries are more violent, while the noirish, colorful Billy Chaka adventures share a strong sense of Japanese culture. -- Shauna Griffin
