I won’t get into politics here, but have you ever wondered why government officials and financial institutions are rarely held accountable for their crimes? Then, The Chickens*** Club by Jesse Eisinger is for you. If you’re offended by the star symbols, I’m sorry. Anyway, it’s a wonderful new book that we have at the library by a Pulitzer Prize winner. He talks about James Comey and a wide cast of characters we’ve all been hearing about in the news. It’s a fascinating read discussing the financial crisis, as well as other large-scale scandals.

On the completely opposite side of the spectrum is Richard Kadrey’s The Kill Society. This book is like a cross between Mad Max and Cormac McCarthy with a lot of noir themes thrown in for good measure. This book is a thrill ride until the very last minute and I had a great time with it. It’s available from your library as an e-book.
