Right now I’m reading The Unknowables by Robert Brockaway. Now, his stuff on cracked.com bores the crap out of me, but this book caught me pretty quick. I’m a bit less than half way through, so this isn’t a final recommendation, but it’s a nod in the books direction. It’s all about the characters, of course. Mind you, the plot as a whole is drawing me in as well.
So yeah, the unknowables… check it out.
