Recommend me a page-turner! I’m looking for a story of any length that you couldn’t put down. Doesn’t have to be a book. I’ll take this story in whatever medium.

A heat wave is coming, US East Coast friends, and I crave a page turner. Not a “great” story or a classic or an artistic monument. A page-turner. Something I’ll chain-smoke.

It’s gonna top 100 F heat index in DC. What might happen to my mind under those conditions? I might eat the book. Forgive me, I beg you, if I eat the book. Or the laserdisc. Recommend me a page-turner.
