Dear Mr. M by Herman Koch
In the spirit of Girl in a Train, Gone Girl and other recent thrillers comes Dear Mr M by Herman Koch. Mr. M is a Dutch author named Herman (please note the actually author of the book's name etc) He lives on the 4th floor. On he 3rd floor is another Herman, who largely goes unnoticed by Mr. M. This neighbor Herman is writing a letter to Mr. M. He doesn't seem to be a fan. And he is stalking the author and his wife. And he believes that the subject of Mr M's best novel is well, him. That book focuses on a teacher who went missing, presumably killed by a school boy and girl who were his students. It seems Herman was the shook boy, whose teacher went missing. HIghly entertaining, I whole-heartedly recommend.
