Origin, by Dan Brown is another fun thriller in “The Da Vinci Code” theme. I always enjoy the symbolism tidbits. I wouldn’t call this book and escape exactly, but it certainly was a page turner.
I loved Slough Horses by Michael Herron. I am a huge fan of spy novels. (But I really don’t like true crime… go figure.) This was a take on the classic “band of misfits” does good story. The book took some time to get started, but once it did, it roared to life.
