DISCLAIMERS:

a) These are books which I read during 2015, not books written in 2015

b) I typically do not list books that are part of long series of fiction, not because they are not worthy, but because I really do not know how to recommend one book versus another book from the series of many talented authors that I have enjoyed such as:  Jeffrey Archer, John Grisham, Vince Flynn, Lee Child, David Baldacci, Brad Thor, Dennis Lehane, Daniel Silva, Stuart Woods, Janet Evanovich, James Patterson, Michael Connelly, John Sandford and many others.
