Bedbugs - Ben H. Winters ...well, that was an amazingly fast read.

Pros: while I figured that Andrea had done something awful, I was not expecting it to be that; I was loosely imagining her murdering her husband, honestly. And Susan's slow determined breakdown is beautifully written--I understand she's right, but the portrayal of how she reacts to the increasing stress is amazingly well done.

Cons: wish that there had been something I could look back at and say "oh yes, that does support the idea" when it came to Susan being right all along. Inherently difficult, I know, given the nature of badbugs, but they clearly do and can take on physical form, so... And I felt Kaufmann was sort of given short shrift by having a puppy named after her.
