Mystery Month: A Look At Some Of The Most-Anticipated Upcoming Mysteries!

All during July we celebrated Mystery Month with extra coverage of the authors, books and series we just can't get enough of. You heard from guest bloggers, got an inside look at the Thrillerfest conference and went behind the scenes in our author interviews. While all good things come to an end, we won't leave you completely empty-handed. Today we list the upcoming releases we are most looking forward to. From action-packed thrillers and suspenses, to the screwball sleuths and the hardboiled cops, if you love reading whodunits then you will definitely want to pre-order the gems highlighted below.



New York to Dallas
By J.D. Robb
Release Date: September 2011

The latest in Robb’s mystery series received a Gold rating from RT’s Senior Reviewer Jill Smith. This novel is sure to please long-time fans but those new to the series will also enjoy this story that focuses on new developments in the case that brought Eve and Roarke together!



Ghost Hero
By S.J. Rozan
Release Month: October

The author continues her Lydia Chin/Bill Smith series with a bang! We can’t wait to see what’s ahead for this interesting pair of sleuths. If you missed their last adventure, 2010’s On The Line, take a moment to pick it up — the novel scored a nomination for an RT Booklovers Award.  



Explosive Eighteen
By Janet Evanovich
Release Date: November 2011

Stephanie Plum and her wacky friends and family are always a delight! Evanovich's books deliver a diverting mystery — and hilarious romantic high jinks. (We are particularly excited that in 2010 we get not one, but two “By the Numbers” Stephanie Plum books!)



The Drop
By Michael Connelly
Release Date: December 2011

This may be LAPD detective Harry Bosch's 17th outing, but we will never tire of his sleuthing skills. We are anxiously anticipating more news about the convoluted case this brilliant detective will be unraveling, and we promise to pass along the details as soon as we get them!



Believing the Lie
By Elizabeth George
Release Date: January 2012

Elizabeth George continues her series after controversially killing off Thomas Lynley’s wife two novels ago. In 2010’s This Body of Death we saw Lynley still grieving, and spending much of his time lost in work. Our fingers are crossed that in this next novel the Scotland Yard Inspector will not only get the bad guy (or gal) and will also meet someone who can help him feel alive again!



No Return
By Brett Battles
Release Date: February 2012

Battles takes a break from his popular Jonathan Quinn series for this upcoming tale of conspiracy and buried secrets. When TV cameraman Wes Stewart attempts to save a Navy fighter pilot from a deadly crash, Wes is unable to rescue him but discovers that what he heard in his few moments with the dying man may just cost Wes his life.



Hush Now, Don't You Cry
By Rhys Bowen
Release Date: March 2012

Head back to turn-of-the-century New York City with Molly Murphy’s eleventh mystery. Molly is sure to win over readers’ hearts and minds with her spunk and fearless heart. (And because this title won’t be out until March, readers new to the series have enough time to go back and start at the beginning, 2001’s Murphy’s Law.)
