Detroit: an American autopsy by Charlie LeDuff — Back in his broken hometown, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Charlie LeDuff searches through the ruins for clues to its fate, his family's, and his own.
The Talented Mr. Ripley by Patricia Highsmith — Like a hero in a latter-day Henry James novel, Tom Ripley is sent to Italy with a commission to coax a prodigal young American back to his wealthy father. But Ripley finds himself so fond of Dickie Greenleaf that he wants to be like him--exactly like him. Suave, agreeable, and utterly amoral, Ripley stops at nothing--certainly not only one murder--to accomplish his goal. Turning the mystery form inside out, Highsmith shows the terrifying abilities afforded to a man unhindered by the concept of evil.
