The Rationing, by Charles Wheelan.
It is the near future . Earth has been hit by a global, baffling superflu that makes some a little sick and kills others.
There is a drug that can cure it, but a series of events sees the USA dangerously short of dosages.
People have to decide who gets the drug. Should there be an age cutoff? Can felons and ex-felons get it? Should people be excluded on the basis of education?
The president and his staff grapple with these questions.
This is a great political thriller/satire. I enjoyed it enormously.

My best to MrsSW,

A.J. Finn 'The Woman in the Window' I highly recommend this.

Samantha Hayes 'Date Night'

K.L. Slater 'Liar'

Clare Mackintosh 'Let Me Lie'

Shari Lapena, 'Someone We Know'

Someone We Know Shari Lapena

This is a suspense novel involving a group of neighbors who had previously been friendly with each other, but maintained a distance.

This is a quiet area where everyone knows everyone. Recently there has been a string of break-ins. A neighborhood teenager has been sneaking into houses and hacking into personal computers. Secrets are uncovered. Then a neighbour is found dead. The secrets begin to come to the surface.
