The Rhythm Section
If you haven’t heard of Mark Burnell, you’re about to: The first book in his Stephanie Patrick thriller series has been made into a movie starring Blake Lively as Patrick. (Jude Law and Sterling K. Brown co-star.) Recruited by an intelligence agency, our heroine begins a thrilling quest to bring down the terrorists who planted an airplane bomb that killed her entire family. If the film does well, expect to see more of them: There are three books remaining in Burnell’s series.
