Dead Reckoning by Charlaine Harris remains in the top spot ... and, indeed, there were actually no changes in the top 10 this week, save for some minor shuffling in the order.

Though not a part of the top 15, our usual cut-off for featured new titles, Hell Is Empty, the 7th Walt Longmire mystery by Craig Johnson, is the highest placing new title at number 19.
Well-read and world-weary, Sheriff Walt Longmire has been maintaining order in Wyoming's Absaroka County for more than thirty years, but he is now pushed to his limits.
Raynaud Shade, an adopted Crow Indian, has just confessed to murdering a boy ten years ago and burying him deep within the Big Horn Mountains. After transporting Shade and a group of other convicted murderers through a snowstorm, Walt is informed by the FBI that the body is buried in his jurisdiction-and the victim's name is White Buffalo. Guided only by Indian mysticism and a battered paperback of Dante's Inferno, Walt pursues Shade and his fellow escapees into the icy hell of the Cloud Peak Wilderness Area, cheating death to ensure that justice-both civil and spiritual-is served.
