"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

I find the settings to be wonderful, since they are not much "citified", and I get a feel for the land.
While again, I find the plot to have a few twists, one knows they are just that, and keeps turning pages, (or with a Kindle, clicking the button). This book doesn't stagnate like so many can, and there is no romance and sex (just subtle male mind thoughts) used to fill pages. It is a great read, and I recommend it to those who like to grab a book and a cup of coffee or cocoa on a cold day, and sit and read in front of the fire, but would be equally enjoyable just about anywhere.
I expect I'll get the next in the series, and read it during the holidays, after eating and cleaning the kitchen! If the next in the series is as fun, I might give the series as gifts to some friends!
One of the measures of a great work of fiction is its ability to generate in the reader both affection & admiration for the hero(s) and a deep feeling of detestation for the villian(s)- and to have those feelings linger long after the book is finished. And when a book is part of a series and the same "villian" pops up in successive volumes, that intense dislike only becomes more magnified - perhaps akin to one's feelings about Professor Moriarty (before his ultimate demise) in the Sherlock Holmes mysteries, although sometimes a seemingly innocuous villian can appear even more detestable than the evil Moriarty.
For me, that "villian" is Brian Stoneman. Read the book and see if you agree.
