I just finished reading "Catch Me" by Lisa Gardner. I loved the many points of view, and the seemingly unrelated plots and how they all pulled together, including the eerily contemporary internet predator story line. Highly recommended.

Just finished Gone Girl and liked it, but think these are even better --

A Place of Execution -- Val McDermid
What the Dead Know -- Laura Lippman
