Finished "License To Lie" by Sidney Powell. Wow! Hard to put the book down! Goes into very detailed stories of corruption at the highest levels of the U.S. Department of Justice and CIA. Power hungry dirty lawyers who to this day have not paid a price for ruining many lives of innocent people.

Finished The Three-Body Problem by Liu Cixin. It was a bit similar to the latest works by Peter Watts, which I liked too.

Just finished "The Most Dangerous Animal of All" by Gary Stewart and Sue Mustafa. Stewart tells his life story of being abandoned by his father and after about 30 years his adoptive parents are contacted by his birth mother. After connecting wit her he decides to try to contact his long lost father. In doing so over about 12 years of research he lays out a pretty compelling case that his father is the Zodiac killer who tormented southern California back in the 60's. For some reason the authorities there do not seem to want to get to the bottom of the case for whatever reason. They are sitting on DNA kits to this day.
