The Best Suspense Books
I’m calling this category “Suspense,” but it’s sort of a catch all to mystery, thriller, etc.
Any well-written book based in DC has my vote. The Street Lawyer is a realistic depiction of transitioning from corporate to grassroots. It's the first John Grisham book I picked up, and over 90% of his books I've read since are equally phenomenal.
Excellent. It's a small-town scrutiny of the highly charged issue of racism. I think Grisham tries to shoot for the same lesson in other books, but this one hits the mark dead center without pounding your head with it.
The movie is good. Mario Puzzo's book is ten times better. If you can get your hands on the multivoice audio recording, it's great! It's A Game of Thrones, Italian mob style.
What would happen if the president, his cabinet, Congress, and the Supreme Court were all killed in an act of terror? Tom Clancy takes on the challenge. It's Clancy at his best, and while the book is long as usual, I promise every page is worth consuming.
Perception management is a scheme to drive public opinion. We expect it of marketing brands, but what happens when the controls are in the hands of government? It's by far the best book I've read of David Baldacci's and every book I've read by Baldacci has been excellent.
