The Phantom of Venice (Nancy Drew, #78) by Carolyn KeeneFans of the game be warned: you will probably NOT adore this shade of crimson. Its nothing like the game. However, you might enjoy the brief mysteries of whether Tara Egan is related to Dexter Egan, if Nicholas Falcone has any connection to the Palazzo Falcone, or Falcone Glassworks, and if the phantoms skull face was omitted from the game because it was already used in Crystal Skull...
On a side note, I am not into Nancy referring to her father as Daddy every two seconds, non-Ned romance or all these teens talking about who does/doesnt turn them on. Whaaaat?

Political satire, of course, has existed almost as long as politics. When people with power act in ways that seem to run counter to good sense or commonly held ethical principles, what are people with less power supposed to do? They can revolt.
The actions of the Aviary, and the enigmatic presence a figure known only as Birdcrash, take on immense and terrifying dimensions as Rachel ventures further into the ruins of the internet. Mark Doten, a satirist of unparalleled vision, brilliantly details how the internet has infiltrated every aspect of our lives, laying the groundwork for the tumult of our current political moment, and, in the kaleidoscopic, queer, all-consuming, parallactic swirl of Trump Sky Alpha, for the future headed our way. This is speculative fiction as burning ring of fire. The book acts both as a novel and as a searching, tortured position paper on the use of media, message and, especially, satire in our time. This is bracingly good satire, so attentive to the subtleties of its object of caricature that it feels almost documentary
