Gun Street Girl by Adrian McKinty

McKinty lovers rejoice! Gun Street Girl, his fourth book in the Troubles Trilogy, is out and detective Sean Duffy is on the trail of disappeared missiles, suspicious American agents, and some decent tunes. Duffy has the fascinating perspective of a Catholic cop on an almost entirely Protestant police force in Northern Ireland during the Troubles. If you haven’t already read McKinty, rush in and get a copy of the first Sean Duffy novel, The Cold Cold Ground. My friend Larry blames me for introducing him and says “All I want to do now is sit around and read McKinty.”

Lawrence in Arabia: War, Deceit, Imperial Folly and the Making of the Modern Middle East

T. E. Lawrence was a whirlwind of force in the mind-bendingly complex Middle East during World War I. Scott Anderson does a great job of describing the hallucinogenic jigsaw puzzle of diplomacy and war. Anderson’s Lawrence is a full and quirky human being; an adventurer and scholar from the start. Bonus: Frank Herbert’s classic sci-fi novel Dune is based on the life of Lawrence and this book makes a great companion read.

The Yoga Club by Cooper Lawrence

They seem to be marketing this as fiction, but I'd call it a mystery. And you'll learn a lot more about Greenwich and NYC society than you will about yoga. This book is fun from the first paragraph. For example, here's Coco considering a guest at a Greenwich Halloween party:‘The overly tie-dyed shirt said "costume" but the David Crosby-style goatee and smell of patchouli said "lifestyle."’

Selected Stories by Fritz Leiber

Holy smokes of Lankhmar, Fafhrd! These are stories to die for. If you thought the Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser stories were the only great things Leiber ever wrote then you have another read coming. He pretty much invented urban horror and was ripping the advertising industry a new larynx way before Adbusters. Plus an enlightening intro by Neil Gaiman.
