I am currently in the home stretch of my favorite author Robert Olen Butler's The Hot Country. It is his first thriller as well as the first in his new Christopher Marlowe Cobb series, and it is set in pre-WWI Mexico, during its revolution. It's very intriguing, and Kitt Cobb is a complex journalist who reveals a big story that could also change the history of the United States!
I am also beta reading an interesting vampire fiction. I like when people have different takes on the vampire mythos (I've been using this word a lot. Am I using it right?), and this writer does a very good job of painting a picture of this supernatural world a poor supposed-to-be-in-college kid is sucked (no pun intended) into.
