Here's a sampling of some of our favorite Mysteries and Thrillers of January, or you can go to the Best Books of the Month to see our picks in all categories.

 

X

  • Orphan X by Gregg Hurwitz - In the words of Senior Editor Adrian Liang, "Orphan X performs a deft high-wire act between the current-day deeds of former black-ops assassin Evan Smoak and fascinating flashbacks to the training Evan received as a young teen in the government's secret Orphan Program. Although Evan dove off the government's radar years ago, he still practices the tradecraft that made him a top graduate of the Orphan Program--maintaining multiple safe houses, rerouting his electronic signals around the globe, avoiding emotional entanglements, and living his life by the Commandments his mentor/trainer Jack instilled in him to keep him alive. Evan also still practices his wetwork skills during rare vigilante acts to help those who are mercilessly preyed upon. When Evan is contacted by a woman in trouble with the Vegas mob, his attempts to help her literally put him in the line of fire. But are the bad guys after her--or is Evan the true target?"

 

B

  • Dictator by Robert Harris - Here is Robert Harris's final installment in the Ancient Rome Trilogy, which started with Imperium and Conspirata. The great orator Cicero has been exiled from Rome... but by promising to support his political enemy Caesar, he is granted return. In rebuilding his power, he is confronted with eternal questions concerning the intersection of power and ambition. But don't be fooled into thinking is simply an historical tome; Dictator reads like a thriller. Cicero, a brilliant and flawed character, provides lessons that could enlighten today's politicians.

 

C

  • Terms of Use by Scott Allan Morrison - Circles is the most popular social network in the world: vast, ubiquitous, and constantly evolving. Days before expanding into China, Circles suffers a devastating cyberattack—and a key executive is brutally murdered. As he fights to save the company he helped build, top engineer Sergio Mansour uncovers evidence of a massive conspiracy that turns the power of Circles against its users. But as Sergio investigates, someone is watching his every move—someone ruthless enough to brand him a criminal and set a vicious hit man on his trail. Desperate to clear his name, Sergio turns to Malina Olson, a beautiful and headstrong doctor who has an agenda of her own. Now, he and Malina must survive long enough to expose the truth in a world without hiding places, where a single keystroke can shift the global balance of power.
