Mystery Bestsellers for March 16, 2007

Mystery BestsellersA list of the top ten for the week ending March 16, 2007 has been posted on the Hidden Staircase Mystery Books website.

Daddys Girl by Lisa ScottolineNew this week: Daddy's Girl by which debuts at the top of the Barnes&Noble.com list and at number 5 at Amazon.com.

Natalie Greco loves being a law professor. But when a colleague talks Nat into teaching a class at a local prison, her comfortably imperfect world turns upside down. A violent prison riot breaks out, and in the chaos, Nat rushes to help a grievously injured guard. Before he dies, he asks her to deliver a cryptic message: "Tell my wife it's under the floor." The dying declaration plunges Nat into a nightmare. Suddenly, the girl who has always followed the letter of the law finds herself suspected of a brutal murder. Forced into hiding to stay alive, she sets out to save herself by deciphering the puzzle behind the dead guard's last words . . . and learns the secret behind the greatest puzzle of all—herself.

What the Dead Know by Laura LippmanAlso new on the lists this week: What the Dead Know by . Thirty years ago two sisters disappeared from a shopping mall. Their bodies were never found and those familiar with the case have always been tortured by these questions: How do you kidnap two girls? Who—or what—could have lured the two sisters away from a busy mall on a Saturday afternoon without leaving behind a single clue or witness? Now a clearly disoriented woman involved in a rush-hour hit-and-run claims to be the younger of the long-gone Bethany sisters. But her involuntary admission and subsequent attempt to stonewall investigators only deepens the mystery. Where has she been? Why has she waited so long to come forward? Could her abductor truly be a beloved Baltimore cop? There isn't a shred of evidence to support her story, and every lead she gives the police seems to be another dead end. There is only one person who dares to be skeptical of a woman who wants to claim the identity of one Bethany sister without revealing the fate of the other. Will he be able to discover the truth? Publishers Weekly calls What the Dead Know "a superb effort".
