Sure, if I knew what "Preston and Child" is/was about.   Is it a title of a book?  If it is, I've never heard of it.  Who's the author?  Do you know enough about the writing style, and content, to tell us?  What genre is it?  Be more specific, please...maybe we can lead you in the right direction.

Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child collaborate on Thriller/Horror novels.  Their usual main character is an excentric FBI agent from New Orleans who gets involved in unusual murder cases.  These books don't take place in New Orleans though, usually New York.   I have enjoyed them, but have not read too much by other authors in the same genre.  I don't usually like horror stories.

Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child are an impressive team... between them they've written many terrifying books. Their stories combine many different genres: horror, suspense, thriller, science fiction, mystery.

 

They created one of fiction's strangest detective, Aloysius Prendergast... a mysterious FBI agent who self-assigns himself the weirdest cases. 

 

Some titles they've written as a team are:

Cemetery Dance

Relic

Reliquary

Cabinet of Curiosities

Dance of Darkness 

 

Individually, Lincoln Child writes similar high-tech/sci-fi stories in the same vein as Michael Crichton. Some of Lincoln Child's books are: 

Terminal Freeze

Deep Storm

Death Match

Utopia

 

Douglas Preston just came out with a semi-fiction book called "The Monster of Florence."

It's his real-life story of hunting a serial killer in modern-day Italy.  

 

Individually, they tell very gripping stories. Combined as a writing team, they are absolutely riveting. And terrifying.

Re: Preston and Child - similar authors style and content ?

What I would recommend for series is "The Hungar Game" by Suzanne Collins,

"The Night World" By L.J. Smith, she also wrote another series called "The Vampire Diaries"

"The Vampire Academy" by Richelle Mead, and her other series Georgina Kincaid, and Dark Swan
