Another one of my favorite creepy, open-ended, beautifully written "thrillers." Doesn't easily fit into the genre but it's definitely full of mystery and suspense. It's like that unsetlling realization you've gotten on the wrong bus and won't be able to get off till the end of the line.

Did not expect to fall so deeply into this elegantly observed, melancholic novel about David Hockney, an artist I honestly didn't know anything about before picking this up. Just goes to show you the power of great writing and great storytelling to open up doors and windows where there previously weren't any. A gorgeous gem.

Hands down my favorite contemporary crime series. Wise-cracking, substance-abusing, pop-culture-referencing Catholic cop on a Protestant police force in 1980s Northern Ireland. This series just works, and gets better and better with each book. There's also a great sense of humor and a devotion to devilishly and classically constructed mysteries.
