My Lovely Wife by Samantha Downing - The tagline says it all: Dexter meets Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Let that sink in for a moment. Here's a debut with lovely, terrible premise.

The River by Peter Heller - I loved this exciting, thoughtful, and well-paced thriller about two friends paddling into trouble in northern Canada. A distant wildfire is the first portent of danger. When the friends hear a man and woman arguing on the foggy riverbank, they decide to warn them about the fire—but their search for the pair turns up nothing. The next day a man appears solo on the river. Was he one of the people they heard the day before?

The Terminal List: A Thriller by Jack Carr - A Navy SEAL has nothing left to live for and everything to kill for after he discovers that the American government is behind the deaths of his team in this ripped-from-the-headlines political thriller. That's from the copy, and if the storyline sounds at all interesting to you, pick up this book, because it is really, really good.
