Work Done for Hire
Still traumatized by his past as a sniper for the US military, Jack accepts an offer to write a near-future novel about a serial killer, based on a Hollywood script outline. Then a package arrives: sniper rifle, silencer, ammunition, and the first installment of a $100,000 payment to kill a 'bad man'. The people behind the twisted offer have Jack under surveillance. And if he doesn't take the job, they'll kill his girlfriend.

Heinlein, Robert A.  
The Man Who Sold the Moon / Orphans of the Sky
The Man Who Sold the Moon: D. D. Harriman is a billionaire with a dream: the dream of space for all mankind. The method? Anything that works. Maybe, in fact, Harriman goes too far. But he will give us the stars.

Orphans of the Sky: Hugh had been taught that, according to the ancient sacred writings, the Ship was on a voyage to faraway Centaurus. But he also understood that this must be allegory for a voyage to spiritual perfection. After all, the real world was only metal corridors and nothing else, right? And then Hugh begins to suspect the truth.
