Mystery Bestsellers for May 25, 2007

Mystery BestsellersA list of the top ten for the week ending May 25, 2007 has been posted on the Hidden Staircase Mystery Books website.

The Overlook by Michael ConnellyThe top 5 are the same at both and Barnes& this week, including a new mystery at the top of both: , the 13th entry in the Harry Bosch mystery series by which began as a 16-part serialized novel in The New York Times. Harry's first case as a member of the LAPD Homicide Special Unit involves the murder of a doctor with access to radioactive cesium. The investigation moves to red-alert status when it's discovered that a large quantity of the deadly material disappeared shortly before the killing. With the threat of an imminent terrorist attack hovering in his head, Bosch must not only track down the killers but also sidestep homeland security turf wars in the process. Though a slim novel at half the length of Connelly's previous novels, Publishers Weekly states "[Connelly] spares no punches when it comes to complexity and suspense."

Lethally Blond by Kate WhiteAlso new this week: Lethally Blond by Kate White. Whenever a celebrity throws a phone, crashes a car, or kills a spouse, celebrity journalist Bailey Weggins is there to cover it for the gossip magazine Buzz. Now, the new television show Morgue is the talk of the town, and its star, Chris Wickersham, calls Bailey when his fellow actor on the show goes missing and no one seems to be alarmed. When Bailey starts to investigate as a favor for Chris, she soon realizes there is much more to the disappearance than meets the eye, and unless she can unearth the truth, she could become the inspiration for Morgue's next episode. Publishers Weekly states "... this trendy romantic suspense cocktail [is] an addictive read."
