Books read in 2016

At the end of the year, I like to look back at the books I've read in the last 12 months.  This year's list includes a mix of both fiction and non-fiction, thrillers and history, phycology and forensics, science fiction and science fact.

This lists stretches across a broad spectrum and reflects my interest in a wide sweep of subjects. I use this interest to expand the breadth and depth of my thrillers.

History of the Supreme Court
Science Odyssey
The Affair
The Righteous Mind
The Ghost
Trails of Evidence
Forensic's: Bugs, Burns, Prints 
Lincoln's Melancholy
Boys in the Boat

My next novel is a mystery set in Glacier National Park and centers around an arson fire that destroys a genetics lab on the BlackFeet Indian Reservation.  Twenty Seventeen's list of books will likely include titles dealing with arson investigation, BlackFeet Culture, and how to write a mystery.

What did you read this past year? Any recommendations?
