Think of a Number (Dave Gurney, # 1) - John Verdon Note: received this a while ago from a goodreads giveaway. Thanks!

A departure from my usual genre, but I was in the mood for a thriller crime mystery and this book definitely fits that description. I usually go into these kinds of books all mentally prepared and alert to spot the clues to predict the outcome and whodunit, but this book always seemed to manage to stay one step ahead of me. It's an impressive debut and a good choice for those who like the genre, admittedly not that heavy on the character development but makes up for it by being very plot-driven and suited for readers who enjoy fast-paced action.
