Thrillers for Dad
Or for anyone. Here are three new, fast-paced, twisty summer reads.
The Black Widow (Harper) by Daniel Silva finds art restorer and spy Gabriel Allon hot on the trail of an ISIS operative who has set off a massive bomb in the Marais district of Paris — and isn't done yet.
The Fourteenth Colony (Minotaur) by Steve Berry features former Justice Department agent Cotton Malone racing to stop a pair of ex-KGB operatives headed for the inauguration of the U.S. president and bent on creating political chaos.
The House of Secrets (Grand Central) by Brad Meltzer is a conspiracy thriller involving a young woman with serious injuries and memory loss — especially about a murdered man with a book that belonged to Benedict Arnold hidden inside his corpse.
