Thanks for all of the great summer reading recommendations! Feel free to send more. Here are the books I’ve read this summer (so far anyway) and what’s on deck for the rest of the summer.
Use of Force, by Brad Thor
Part of the Scot Halvarth series. Halvarth is a former navy seal, transformed into a spy. Action packed, interesting insights into the biz of espionage and all the things we think are happening behind the scenes, but don’t want to ask. 4 stars.
Code Name Camelot, by David Archer
Part of the Noah Wolf series. Noah is a tough dude, with no emotions. This special characteristic allows him to act violently with no remorse. But it’s a two edged sword. 3 stars.

Camino Island, by John Grisham
