The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime by Mark Haddon - Christopher John Francis Boone knows all the countries of the world and their capitals and every prime number up to 7,057.

The Devil of Nanking aka Tokyo by Mo Hayder - The solitary Englishwoman Grey comes to Japan looking for a rare piece of footage that is said to document a particularly monstrous episode of the 1937 Nanking Massacre. Her quest will take her to a reclusive scholar and a wheelchair-bound gangster who clings to life with the aid of a mysterious elixir, and to a handsome American whose interest in Grey may be more sinister than romantic. The result is a work of spine-chilling suspense, masterful historical detail, and otherworldly beauty.
