Fall is definitely in the air! And October is not letting September steal all the new fiction goodness! This month we see more wonderful new releases from some of our favorite authors and their recurring characters!
Michael Connelly is back with Nine Dragons. LAPD detective Harry Bosch is on the case again and looking to clean up some Chinese street gangs and perhaps solve a mysterious murder in the bargain. But while Bosch is working on this a family member is kidnapped in Hong Kong and things really begin to heat up. This is Connelly at his best and frankly we are very excited over this one!
The Scarpetta Factor is the seventeenth offering from Patricia Cornwell in the Kay Scarpetta series. Yes, Kay is back and because of the weak economy she is offering her services pro bono to the Chief Medical Examiner in Manhattan while continuing her gig as a the senior forensic reporter for CNN. Because of her high visibility she becomes embroiled in some pretty shady cases. All the familiar characters are back along with Cornwell’s brisk pacing.
Vince Flynn brings us a wonderful political thriller in the Pursuit of Honor. When a series of explosions wreak havoc on Washington DC counterterrorism op Mitch Rapp and his partner, Mike Nash are on the trail to find the three al Qaeda terrorists responsible. Will the pressure of their assignment prove to be too much? Or is it truly a pursuit of honor?
And lastly we have the wonderful new one from David Baldacci, True Blue. Mace Perry was a hot young cop until she was framed for a crime and lost her badge. More than anything she wants that life back. In order for that to happen she decides she must solve a crime on her own but of course there are roadblocks in her way in the person of a US Attorney who wants more than anything to see her back behind bars. We could not be more pleased and proud that David Baldacci will be our guest here on November 5th. Please mark your calendars; this is going to be a wonderful event.
With this selection of thrillers to get your heart pounding and pulse racing the shorter days and cooler nights may just be something to be looking forward to.
