I started a new thriller last night called Empire of Lies by Andrew Klavan. I've been familiar with Klavan for some years since I used to occasionally read his articles for the City Journal where he was a regular contributor, and also the few pieces he wrote for other publications. I knew he was an author of popular crime fiction thrillers, but wasn't interested in reading much in the genre until recently. Read the first two chapters last night. I'm already hooked.
