Civilization as we now know it is sustained by an ocean of electrons. Electricity is at the root of nearly everything we do. So what would happen if that ocean evaporated, if that root was severed? This is the crux of Marc Elsberg's Blackout. In it, unknown hackers suddenly take out Europe's power grid, leaving millions in the dark. Authorities race to find the culprits and fix the problem before it’s too late. This is an excellent, fast-paced thriller that will leave you wondering, next time you go to flip a light switch, whether or not it will turn back on.

Keigo Higashino's Malice is a spiraling masterpiece of mystery. Devised as an inverted detective story, with the apropos early capture, Malice is quickly flipped from a "whodunit" to a "whytheydunit," fueling its suspense with an absence of motive. In turn, Higashino drives this novel via the dueling unreliable narratives of Detective and Prime Suspect. These narrative threads unravel, respectively, in their own chapters, yet collectively twist together to form Malice, simultaneously spinning both sides of the story and sending the reader into a tizzy towards truth.
