Marine One by James Huston.
The President departs the White House in a torrential thunderstorm for a secret meeting at Camp David. Enroute Marine One crashes, and the President is killed. Is it an accident or sabotage? Mike Nolan, lawyer and Marine Corps reserve helicopter pilot, is given the task of investigating. The more he looks, the more questions arise. Soon, there are more deaths. It's a mix of political intrigue, international controversy, and courtroom drama. Nonstop suspense at its best.
Mistress of the Art of Death by Ariana Franklin.
CSI meets The Canterbury Tales. This criminal investigation drama set in 12th century England introduces Adelia Aguilar, a “doctor to the dead”. Four children are murdered in Cambridge. Henry II appeals to the King of Sicily for a doctor to the dead (forensic pathologist) to help him catch the murderer. Adelia and her assistants are sent, but they find that Adelia must conceal her identity or risk denunciation as a witch. More murders follow, but the villain is ultimately unmasked.
