Aurora (2022)
David Koepp
"Aurora is everything a great novel, and great thriller, should be. David Koepp's story is frightening, surprising, wildly entertaining, but also full of heart. I don't know of many writers who could keep that many plates spinning as deftly, or as successfully. Somehow Koepp does. Aurora is the work of one of our best storytellers, at the top of his game."
