"The Thank You Economy" by Gary Vaynerchuk.

Through the process, she must reconnect with her family and reach out to her long term mentally ill mother. Eventually, Bartok and her mother open a long locked truck which floods them both with memories that had been lost to both of them.
"The Sixth Man" by David Baldacci. The man defending an alleged serial killer is found murdered before the trial begins. Investigators Sean King and Michelle Maxwell begin asking questions that put them on a collision course with the highest levels of government and the darkest corners of power.
