Nick Harkaway's six favorite holiday books

Nick Harkaway is the author of a nonfiction work about digital culture, The Blind Giant: Being Human in a Digital World, and three novels: The Gone-Away World, Angelmaker, and the newly released Tigerman. Harkaway happens to be the son of John Le Carré.

One of Harkaway's six favorite holiday books, as shared at the Daily Express:
Beat The Reaper by Josh Bazell

This has been one of my favourite thrillers for many years. It's about a guy who used to be a mobster and is now a doctor and his past comes back to haunt him.

It's hilarious and it's fabulous and it's terrifying and there are sharks.

Beat the Reaper also made the Telegraph's list of best crime books of 2009 and is one of Time's top ten fiction books of 2009.
