I am reading book two of the Joe Ledger series called Dragon Factory. The first one, which was excellently done was called Patient Zero. Its your run of the mill zombie / creature terror, without the full-blown apocalypse. Joe Ledger, a former Detective turned federal agent goes beyond normalcy to prevent these scenarios from reaching their full nightmarish pinnacle.
Literary book about two attorney brothers in NYC who return to their small hometown in Maine because their sister's son threw a pig's head through a mosque (lots of Somali refugees) and is being charged with a hate crime.
It's originally from the 50s and is an analysis piece on the role of the military in society and Huntington's theories on civil-military relations. Very interesting read, but dry. It is required reading for me.
