The Innocent by David Baldacci

Can a cold-blooded killer be a sympathetic character?  If he’s the hero in a David Baldacci novel, the answer is yes.  This is so episodic that it could be called “a chapter book for grownups.”  The dust jacket calls Will Robie a “hit man,” but “government operative” is more accurate.  Robie’s moral dilemmas are just as compelling as his adventures, and I couldn’t wait to find out what was going to happen next.  A fast and rewarding read. 

Fun & Games by Duane Swierczynski

Fast, Furious & Funny: be prepared to read this high-octane thriller in one sitting because it's almost impossible to put down. House sitter Charlie Hardie stumbles into an assassination attempt when he arrives at a Hollywood Hills client's home, and spends the rest of the story trying to evade and outsmart the hitmen (and woman) called the Accident People. One critic called the book "insanely entertaining" and I have to agree! Better yet, it's the first in a trilogy.
