New Mystery Hardcover Titles for March 2006 (updated)

The Hidden Staircase Mystery Books has performed a mid-month update to the list of new hardcover mystery books for March 2006.

Three notable additions to the list:

Tomb of the Golden Bird is the 18th Amelia Peabody mystery. The incomparable Emerson clan is a hairbreadth away from unearthing the legendary site they've been searching for. But a sinister plot and a dark family secret stand in the way of their ultimate ambition -- and threaten to change things forever. Publishers Weekly states, "Once again Peters delivers an irresistible mix of archeology, action, humor and a mystery that only the redoubtable Amelia can solve."

The 13th Doc Ford mystery, Dark Light, by Randy Wayne White is out this week. From the publisher: "A Category Four hurricane has swept the west coast of Florida, creating havoc, changing lives, and reshaping the ocean bottom. The old woman who visits Doc Ford's lab late one night has a haunting story, of a loved one lost while rendezvousing with a German submarine off the coast of Florida sixty years earlier, of her belief that he was being blackmailed and that the storm has given her a second chance to prove his innocence by uncovering the wreck of his boat-and the truth-if only Ford would look for it."

And the 7th Benjamin Justice mystery, Rhapsody in Blood, by John Morgan Wilson moves Justice out of his usual milieu of West Hollywood to spend a weekend at the Haunted Springs Hotel, site of the rape and murder of a movie star 50 years before, the lynching (the last one ever in California) of the black handyman charged with the crime and the suicide of the movie star's daughter in the same hotel room 25 years later.
