Daylight by David Baldacci.
FBI Agent Atlee Pine's search for her sister Mercy clashes with military investigator John Puller's high-stakes case, leading them both deep into a global conspiracy -- from which neither of them will escape unscathed. For many long years, Atlee Pine was tormented by uncertainty after her twin sister, Mercy, was abducted at the age of six and never seen again. Now, just as Atlee is pressured to end her investigation into Mercy's disappearance, she finally gets her most promising breakthrough yet: the identity of her sister's kidnapper, Ito Vincenzo. With time running out, Atlee and her assistant Carol Blum race to Vincenzo's last known location in Trenton, New Jersey -- and unknowingly stumble straight into John Puller's case, blowing his arrest during a drug ring investigation involving a military installation. Stunningly, Pine and Puller's joint investigation uncovers a connection between Vincenzo's family and a breathtaking scheme that strikes at the very heart of global democracy. Peeling back the layers of deceit, lies and cover-ups, Atlee finally discovers the truth about what happened to Mercy. And that truth will shock Pine to her very core.

Reconsidering Reagan by Daniel S. Lucks.
"This book documents Reagan's childhood, political career, and presidency, arguing that Reagan compiled the worst civil rights record of any President since the 1920s; it explores his blithe indifference to the legacy of slavery, assaults on Affirmative Action and Voting Rights, a war on Drugs that ensnared the poor and people of color leading to the carceral state, and his hostility to the black freedom struggle."-- Provided by publisher
