(Berkley)

“Zoe Walker sees her picture in a personal ad for a dating website.  At first she thinks there must be a mistake.  She soon learns that other women whose pictures have appeared in these ads have been subjected to violent crimes. Zoe contacts the police .PC Kelly Smith, a disgraced former detective, works to find the mastermind behind the website and redeem herself. As each day passes Zoe becomes more and more paranoid and suspicious of everyone she meets.Told from three different viewpoints, the tension builds and kept me on the edge of my seat.”

Dry by Jane Harper

The death of his best friend, Luke, and family (deemed murder/suicide) brings Aron Falk back to his hometown to help Luke's father figure out why Luke would do such a thing. Upon returning, Falk finds out the town is still blaming him for a mysterious death of a girl friend that occurred 20 years ago, the reason he and his father left town. Wanting a solution to the past mystery almost derails his investigation into his friend's recent murder.
A very good mystery that takes place in Australia during a drought that makes the small town a tinderbox of tension.

A story of Jewish refugee brothers on their family journey from Hungary to Paris, growing up as curious boys do, trying to figure out life and family secrets in their changing world of the 50's.
A very good quick read.
