Mystery BestsellersA list of the top ten for the week ending April 06, 2007 has been posted on the Hidden Staircase Mystery Books website.

White Night by Jim ButcherNew this week: White Night, the 9th hard-boiled mystery by featuring professional wizard Harry Dresden, debuts on the Barnes& mystery hardcover bestseller list. Dresden is investigating a series of deaths in . Someone is killing practitioners of magic, those incapable of becoming full-fledged wizards. Shockingly, all the evidence points to Harry's half-brother, Thomas, as the murderer. Determined to clear his sibling's name, Harry uncovers a conspiracy within the White Council of Wizards that threatens not only him, but his nearest and dearest, too. Publishers Weekly calls White Night "superlative". [Mystery Books News Editor's note: The Dresden Files is now a series on the SciFi Channel. Visit the series homepage on here.]

The Naming of the Dead by Ian RankinAlso new on both lists this week: The Naming of the Dead by Ian Rankin. The leaders of the free world descend on Scotland for an international conference, and every cop in the country is needed for front-line duty...except one. John Rebus's reputation precedes him, and his bosses don't want him anywhere near Presidents Bush and Putin, which explains why he's manning an abandoned police station when a call comes in. During a preconference dinner at Edinburgh Castle, a delegate has fallen to his death. Accident, suicide, or something altogether more sinister? And is it linked to a grisly find close to the site of the gathering? Are the world's most powerful men at risk from a killer? While the government and secret services attempt to hush the whole thing up, Rebus knows he has only seventy-two hours to find the answers.
