Mystery Bestsellers for November 13, 2009

Mystery Bestsellers

A list of the top 15 for the week ending November 13, 2009 has been posted on the Hidden Staircase Mystery Books website.

After a quiet week last week, two new books enter the top 15.

Kindred in Death by J. D. Robb

Though debuting at 23 last week, Kindred in Death, the 35th futuristic thriller featuring NYPSD Lieutenant Eve Dallas by J. D. Robb, moves up sharply this week into the 6th spot.

When the newly promoted captain of the department and his wife return a day early from their vacation, they were looking forward to spending time with their bright and vivacious sixteen-year-old daughter who had stayed behind. Not even their worst nightmares could have prepared them for the crime scene that awaited them instead. Brutally murdered in her bedroom, Deena's body showed signs of trauma that horrified even the toughest of cops; including Dallas, who was specifically requested by the captain to investigate. When the evidence starts to pile up, Dallas and her team think they are about to arrest their perpetrator; little do they know yet that someone has gone to great lengths to tease and taunt them by using a variety of identities. Overconfidence can lead to careless mistakes. But for Dallas, one mistake might be all she needs to bring justice.

Grave Secret by Charlaine Harris

Coming in at number 12 is the 4th mystery in the Harper Connelly series, Grave Secret by Charlaine Harris.

Lightning-struck sleuth Harper and her stepbrother Tolliver take a break from looking for the dead to visit the two little girls they both think of as sisters. But, as always happens when they travel to Texas, memories of their horrible childhood resurface. To make matters worse, Tolliver learns from his older brother that their father is out of jail and trying to reestablish contact with other family members. Tolliver wants no part of the man- but he may not have a choice in the matter. Soon, family secrets ensnare them both, as Harper finally discovers what happened to her missing sister, Cameron, so many years before. And what she finds out will change her world forever.
