Eight new novels with a travel theme

At Condé Nast Traveler, Marisa Meltzer tagged eight new reads "that will transport you across the globe," including:
Do Not Become Alarmed by Maile Meloy

Liv and Nora take their husbands and young children on a cruise. The luxury of a floating resort makes everyone happy, so when they all disembark for an adventure in Panama, everything seems like a good idea. Until it isn’t, and the kids vanish. The thriller that ensues is told from the point of view of both the parents and the children. Meloy, whose short stories were the basis of last year’s indie film Certain Women, writes a tense book in her signature sparing prose, and may have the book of the summer on her hands.
