The Capablanca Variation by Douglas Quinn: Charlie's Angels meets James Bond--world-traveling agents steered by a behind the scenes chess-master; death, mayhem and destruction.
The Electric Church by Jeff Somers: dystopian science fiction; dark world; scary technology; and great fun.
Shadows from the Past by Ashley Dawn: Christian suspense with lots of backstory and description. Former friends thrown together in the hunt for a murderer who's got them both in his sights.
And in a more literary vein...
The Reckoning by Howard Owen: A teenager comes of age, tied down by his father's own coming of age during the Vietnam war, and threatened by loss. A surprisingly powerful tale that stays with the reader long after the last page is turned.
Seducing the Spirits by Louise Young: A stunning depiction of tribespeople, jungle, science, humanity and spirituality. Wonderful descriptions. Fascinating characters. And interesting questions of identity and intent.
Tepper isn't going out by Calvin Trillin: Ah, but why isn't he going out? And why is he so determined? And how can sitting in your car almost cause a riot? A really fun book.
