Ghettoside by Jill Leovy. In depth story about homicides in the poorer parts of LA. The author makes the strong case that the high rate of crime is a consequence of poverty and lack of strong government, not surprising. At times a very sad story.
Rogue Protocol and Exit Strategy by Martha Wells. Last two books of the Murderbot series, I just love this character. An inhuman killing machine with a heart of gold and more humanity than most humans.
The Gone World by Tom Sweterlisch. Very inventive, humans travel to the stars and the near future and back — and something horrible comes back with them.
The Darkest Secret by Alex Marwood. A missing child case turns much darker as her sibling uncovers ugly secrets years later. Fun.
