Mystery Bestsellers for May 18, 2007

Mystery BestsellersA list of the top ten for the week ending May 18, 2007 has been posted on the Hidden Staircase Mystery Books website.

Invisible Prey by John SandfordNew this week: Invisible Prey, the 17th entry in the Lucas Davenport mystery series by John Sandford. In the richest neighborhood of Minneapolis, two elderly women lie murdered in their home, killed with a pipe, the rooms tossed, only small items stolen. It is clearly the random work of someone looking for money to buy drugs. But as Davenport looks more closely, he begins to wonder whether the items are actually so small and the victims so random-if there might not be some invisible agenda at work here. Gradually, a pattern begins to emerge, and it leads him to . . . certainly nothing he ever expected. Which is too bad, because the killers-and, yes, there is more than one of them-the killers are expecting him. Publishers Weekly calls Invisible Prey "an intriguing puzzle."

Bad Luck and Trouble by Lee ChildAlso new at the top of the charts this week: Bad Luck and Trouble, the 11th Jack Reacher thriller by Lee Child. From , a woman from his old military unit finds Reacher using a signal only the eight members of their elite team of army investigators would know. She tells him a terrifying story—about the brutal death of a man they both served with. Soon Reacher is reuniting with the survivors of his old team, scrambling to raise the living, bury the dead, and connect the dots in a mystery that is growing darker by the day. The deeper they dig, the more they don’t know: about two other comrades who have suddenly gone missing—and a trail that leads into the neon of and the darkness of international terrorism. Kirkus Reviews predicts that no one "... will turn in a tighter-plotted, richer-peopled, faster-paced page-turner this year."
