Mystery Bestsellers for July 25, 2008

Mystery Bestsellers

A list of the top 15 for the week ending July 25, 2008 has been posted on the Hidden Staircase Mystery Books website.

Just a minor shuffiling of the top 6 this week with 's 14th mystery featuring bounty hunter Stephanie Plum, Fearless Fourteen retaining the number 1 spot for the 5th consecutive week.

Moscow Rules by Daniel Silva

New this week and debuting at number 12 is Moscow Rules, the 8th international thriller by featuring sometime Israeli operative Gabriel Allon. The death of a journalist leads Allon to Russia, where he finds that, in terms of spycraft, even he has something to learn. He's playing by Moscow rules now. This is not the grim, gray Moscow of Soviet times but a new Moscow, awash in oil wealth and choked with bulletproof Bentleys. A Moscow where power resides once more behind the walls of the Kremlin and where critics of the ruling class are ruthlessly silenced. A Moscow where a new generation of Stalinists is plotting to reclaim an empire lost and to challenge the global dominance of its old enemy, the United States. One such man is Ivan Kharkov, a former KGB colonel who built a global investment empire on the rubble of the Soviet Union. Hidden within that empire, however, is a more lucrative and deadly business: Kharkov is an arms dealer—and he is about to deliver Russia's most sophisticated weapons to al-Qaeda. Unless Allon can learn the time and place of the delivery, the world will see the deadliest terror attacks since 9/11—and the clock is ticking fast. Library Journal states, "Some long-running series get tired; Silva's just improves with each new book. Highly recommended." adds, "The fusion of the critical threats of terrorism with the relative normalcy of the personal lives of the agents is remarkably well done and the intricate scheme that Allon conceives to foil the arms sale encourages the reader to keep turning the pages."
