Mystery Hardcover Bestsellers (07/14/2006)

Mystery BestsellersA list of the top ten mystery hardcover bestsellers for the week ending July 14, 2006 has been posted on the Hidden Staircase Mystery Books website.

12 Sharp by Janet Evanovich received some stiff competition this week from Kathy Reich's 9th mystery featuring forensic anthropologist Tempe Brennan, Break No Bones, which took over the top spot at Barnes & Noble.com.

In Break No BonesBreak No Bones by Kathy Reichs Tempe is summoned to South Carolina to fill in for a negligent colleague, stuck teaching at a lackluster archeology field school in the ruins of a Native American burial ground on the Charleston shore. But when Tempe stumbles upon a fresh skeleton among the ancient bones, her old friend Emma Rousseau, the local coroner, persuades Tempe to stay on and help with the investigation. When Emma reveals a disturbing secret, it becomes more important than ever for Tempe to help her friend close the case. Reichs' mysteries are the inspiration for the hit Fox series Bones.

Another new book to break into the top 10 is Angels Fall by Nora Roberts, where she explores the wilds of the Grand Tetons, and the mysteries of love, murder, and madness, in her engrossing and passionate new novel. Angels Fall by Nora RobertsReece Gilmore knows there's a killer in Angel's Fist, Wyoming, even if gruff loner Brody, despite his seeming impatience and desire to keep her at arm's length, is the only one willing to believe her. When a series of menacing events makes it clear that someone wants her out of the way, Reece must put her trust in Brody-and herself-to find out if there is a killer in Angel's Fist before it's too late. Publishers Weekly states that "Roberts's latest novel of romantic suspense is a cunningly calibrated portrait of a young chef's recovery from violent trauma." And adds, "A slow-burn start combusts in a satisfying denouement; Roberts's legions of fans will be enthralled."
