"Before the Fall" by Noah Hawley

A crackling, sharply written, thoughtful, nonstop thriller. The characters are nicely cast, the red herrings and surprises keep things moving, and the plot is fresh and timely. What more do you want from a thriller? I did occasionally have to struggle with the occasional hyper-realistic dialog that in print comes across as nonsensical at times, but appreciate Hawley's effort to make it life-like. Still, thoroughly enjoyable and ultimately satisfying. Read through is now available.
