Scoreboard, Baby by Ken Armstrong & Nick Perry. The inside story on the UW football team in the early 2000s, pretty shocking and awful. I am sure this level of corruption has happened at other programs too.
Red Rising by Pierce Brown. Start of a series set in the far future of our solar system. All the near habitable planets and moons are terraformed, a rigid authoritarian society is in place, and an uprising starts at the lowest levels of Martian society. Fun.
Need To Know by Karen Cleveland. A LOT of fun. A CIA analyst discovers her husband might be a Russian mole, and things get complicated as she tries to protect her life while more and more of the onion gets peeled away.
The Humans by Matt Haig. A scientist makes a mathematical breakthrough which will transform our society, triggering the arrival of aliens who decide that humans aren’t ready for this knowledge.
Broken River by J. Robert Lennon. Crimes and misdeeds swirl around a house in upstate New York. Eventually pretty much everyone is threatened with death or is dead. Fun!
Introducing Go by Caleb Doxsey. Very short intro to golang. A bit thin.
