Mystery Bestsellers

A list of the top 15 mystery hardcover bestsellers for the week ending December 31st, 2010 has been posted on the Hidden Staircase Mystery Books website.

Though there is no change in the top 12, with The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest by Stieg Larsson continuing its dominance on the chart, a new title enters the list this week.

Secrets to the Grave by Tami Hoag
More information about the book

In 13th position is the second thriller to feature Sheriff's Detective Tony Mendez and teacher-turned-child advocate Anne Leone, Secrets to the Grave by Tami Hoag.

Marissa Fordham had a past full of secrets, a present full of lies. Everyone knew of her, but no one knew her.

When Marissa is found brutally murdered, with her young daughter, Haley, resting her head on her mother's bloody breast, she sends the idyllic California town of Oak Knoll into a tailspin. Already on edge with the upcoming trial of the See-No-Evil killer, residents are shocked by reports of the crime scene, which might not have been discovered for days had it not been for a chilling 911 call: a small child's voice saying, "My daddy hurt my mommy."

Tony Mendez faces a puzzle with nothing but pieces that won't fit. To assist with his witness, Haley, he calls Anne Leone. Anne's life is hectic enough -- she's a newlywed and a part-time student in child psychology, and she's the star witness in the See-No-Evil trial. But one look at Haley, alone and terrified, and Anne's heart is stolen.

As Tony and Anne begin to peel back the layers of Marissa Fordham's life, they find a clue fragment here, another there. And just when it seems Marissa has taken her secrets to the grave, they uncover a fact that puts Anne and Haley directly in the sights of a killer: Marissa Fordham never existed.
