A list of the top 15 mystery hardcover bestsellers for the week ending May 14, 2010 has been posted on the Hidden Staircase Mystery Books website.
Moving solidly into the top spot this week is the 10th mystery in the Sookie Stackhouse Southern Vampire series, Dead in the Family by Charlaine Harris. And a new legal thriller, which debuted last week just off the list, moves up sharply this week.

Moving up to 7th position is Innocent, a sequel to Scott Turow's blockbuster first novel, Presumed Innocent (though his 8th novel set in fictional Kindle County, Illinois).
More than twenty years after Rusty Sabich and Tommy Molto went head-to-head in the shattering murder trial that was part of the shocking conclusion of Presumed Innocent, the men are pitted against each other once again in a riveting psychological match. When Sabich, now over sixty years old and the chief judge of an appellate court, finds his wife, Barbara, dead under mysterious circumstances, Molto accuses him of murder for the second time, setting into motion a trial that is vintage Turow—the courtroom at its most taut and explosive.
