Mystery Hardcover Bestsellers (08/04/2006)

Mystery BestsellersA list of the top ten mystery hardcover bestsellers for the week ending August 04, 2006 has been posted on the Hidden Staircase Mystery Books website.

The writing team of James Patterson and Andrew Gross top the bestseller list this week with Judge & JuryJudge & Jury by James Patterson and Andrew Gross. Senior FBI agent Nick Pellisante is closing in on the notorious mob boss "The Electrician," when the scheduled sting goes spectacularly awry. Two FBI agents are dead, the boss is wounded, and Pellisante vows the Electrician's next move will be from a jail cell. Andie Echeverra, a part-time actress and a single, full-time mom, is assigned her next role as Juror #11 in the landmark trial against Mafia Don Dominic Cavello. Everybody is on edge. No one has ever crossed the man whose orders have made entire families disappear. Though Cavello's influence extends across blue uniforms and black robes, the case should be open-and-shut. But the legal system fails with devastating results, and Nick and Andie are the only ones left to seek justice. To stop the Electrician, they must take matters into their own hands. They are the judge and jury now.

Also debuting in the top ten this week: the haunting story of three cops—one good, one bad, one broken—and the murder that reunited them in a showdown decades in the making is the premise of The Night GardenerThe Night Gardener by George P. Pelecanos by George P. Pelecanos. Reviews have been enthusiastically positive for this book. The New York Times calls it "... beautifully delineated moral tales, filled with gut-wrenching turns of fate and razor-sharp, boisterously vivid characters." Publishers Weekly adds that "Pelecanos ... delivers a dignified, character-driven epic that succeeds as both literary novel and page-turner."
