Mystery Bestsellers for the Week Ending January 20, 2012

Bestselling Hardcover Mystery Books

A list of the top 15 mystery hardcover bestsellers for the week ending January 20th, 2012 has been posted by the Hidden Staircase Mystery Books.

We're not sure we've ever seen this happen before, but after spending much of 2010 at number one and then finally dropping out of the top 10, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest by Stieg Larsson has retained the top spot on our list this week. It's by only the barest of margins, but still … wow!

One new title debuts.

The Rope by Nevada Barr

Entering the list at number 12 is the 17th mystery to feature national park ranger Anna Pigeon, The Rope by Nevada Barr, a prequel to the series.

In 1995 and 35 years old, fresh off the bus from New York City and nursing a broken heart, Anna Pigeon takes a decidedly unglamorous job as a seasonal employee of the Glen Canyon National Recreational Area. On her day off, Anna goes hiking into the park never to return. Her co-workers think she’s simply moved on — her cabin is cleaned out and her things gone. But Anna herself wakes up, trapped at the bottom of a dry natural well, naked, without supplies and no clear memory of how she found herself in this situation.

As she slowly pieces together her memory, it soon becomes clear that someone has trapped her there, in an inescapable prison, and no one knows that she is even missing. Plunged into a landscape and a plot she is unfit and untrained to handle, Anna Pigeon must muster the courage, determination and will to live that she didn’t even know she still possessed to survive, outwit and triumph.
