I'll look into those that you mention, I'm always open to recommendations for the crime fiction genre
Kathy Reichs would be my favourite, I have read all of the Temperance Brennan books (19 in total) and also her young adult offerings (co-written with her son).
I also really like Tess Gerritsen and have just today moved on to the last book in the Rizzoli & Isles series (12 books in total). I've given JK Rowling's Strike series a go but find it to be a bit hit and miss, I find I get bored quite a bit.
I have books by Patricia Cornwall, John Grisham and Steve Cavanagh (Irish author) on my shelf to give a go once I wrap up the the Rizzoli & Isles series by Gerritsen.
I've also read quite a few books by Mary Higgins Clarke but I would not recommend her. I thought her books were very basic and followed the same set up, so no surprises or twists and turns.
