For die-hard mystery lovers, this novel has everything you could possibly want. Murder. Cover-ups. Possible police scandal. Each chapter will bring you closer and closer to finding answers, but the plot is completely unpredictable. Mystery novices may get lost in the multiple voice of the various characters and the plethora of acronyms, but this novel is a must-read for anyone who’s obsessed with conspiracy theories.

The murder of a senator shakes the local government in Washington, D.C., and both the CIA and the FBI are on the case. What looks to be the work of a mentally ill man turns into an investigation of a cover-up that goes beyond the nation’s capital. FBI agent Sydney Fitzpatrick finds her name connected to the murder and is racing the clock to connect the dots. Aiding her is CIA operative Zachary Griffin, who is set to take the fall as the bodies continue to pile up. (HARPER, Dec., 400 pp., $5.99)
