1. City of Thieves by David Benioff

Two young men meet after being arrested in Leningrad in 1942. They expect to be executed but instead are given a seemingly impossible task by the Colonel. In a city under seige, full of starving people, find a dozen eggs for a wedding cake. The plot's many twists and turns will keep you guessing until the last chapter.
