These top fiction novels are the best of the best and are well worth a read. Many of them appear in the Washington Post bestsellers and New York Times bestsellers lists or on Amazon.

Though my main interest is in paperback books. Most of the above novels are available as audiobooks through Audible or one of the other companies or as eBooks.

Many of us are working or not at home, are taking staycations or some even holidays and we are keen to read more in our downtime.

I have tried to give you a wide selection of thriller writers work from both industry giants and relative newcomers.

Reading fiction is a great way to spend your time and to grow.

Absolute Power by David Baldacci

 

Absolute Power was written by David Baldacci.

The novel opens when a professional burglar named Luther Whitney, breaks into the home of a billionaire in an upmarket Virginia suburb.  While trying to rob the house he sees the United States President and the wife of the billionaire having wild sex. While Whitney is watching their passionate sex becomes violent ending in the woman being killed as the Secret Service burst in on them. Whitney saw the killing through a large two way mirror door that concealed a closet room. In this hidden room the billionaire would sit watching as other men had sex with his wife. Whitney made his escape, but the Secret Service had already found out that someone had been watching. The Secret Service orchestrates a campaign to implicate Whitney in the murder of the billionaire’s wife. The agents try to track down Whitney, who goes on the run – though he wants to make sure the real culprit is exposed.

A very clever, believable plot that is a real page turner. David Baldacci is a master of his craft.

Absolute Power was made into a film starring Clint Eastwood.
