I am currently reading my way through a long list of science fiction and fantasy titles. (http://www.npr.org/2011/08/07/138938145/science-fiction-and-fantasy-finalists if you are interested in the list).
***2018 The Summer of Spies***
Believe it or not, I have never read anything by John Le Carré ever before. He wastes no time, with a body on the very first pages!
Maybe its just the African setting, but its making me think of another recently read book, The Poisonwood Bible. Probably because of the colonial attitudes of the main character.
