November's Hot Titles

There are some BIG books due out in November, so I'll jump right in and start listing them. Let me know what you want to read in November.

In David Baldacci's Forgotten, soldier/sleuth John Fuller gets called out on a case that turns out to be personal. His aunt was found dead in the pool at her Florida home. The police ruled it an accident, but Fuller has reason to believe otherwise.

Max Allan Collins' private investigator, Nathan Heller, takes on JFK in Target Lancer. Heller knows of the plan to take down Kennedy, and he may be the only one who can save the president's life.

LAPD Detective Harry Bosch gets to investigate one of his old cases in Michael Connelly's Black Box. He connects a bullet from a recent crime to a case he worked on in 1992 that was handed off to the Riot Crimes Task Force. Now he has the chance to close the case.

Clive Cussler joins forces with his son, Dirk, for Poseidon's Arrow. The blueprints for an attack submarine goes missing, and if Dirk Pitt can't track down the thief, the world as we know it may be over.

There's no real information about the plot of Janet Evanovich's Notorious Nineteen, but does it really matter? I'm guessing it involves Stephanie Plum, Morelli, Ranger, Lulu, and an exploding car or two, along with dinner at Stephanie's parents' house.

Vince Flynn's latest Mitch Rapp novel is Last Man. Rapp and his crew had been hired to protect Joe Rickman, head of the CIA's clandestine operations in Afghanistan, but he's nowhere to be found. He could have been kidnapped, but Rapp's knowledge indicates otherwise. Now, he has to find Rickman at all costs.

Barbara Kingsolver, who now lives in Tennessee, sets her latest novel there. Flight Behavior features a woman who walks into something she can't explain or understand, a forested valley glowing with silent red fire that appears to be a miracle. Her discovery generates mixed reactions from the public, and greatly impacts her life.

Judge Deborah Knott and Sheriff's Deputy Dwight Bryant are back in Calhoun County in Margaret Maron's Buzzard Table. At a dinner, they meet a newcomer, an ornithologist in town doing research, but one guest is sure there's something familiar about him. When a killer strikes, Deborah and Dwight work together to solve the crime.

Looking for Yesterday is Marcia Muller's latest Sharon McCone mystery. Caro Warrick was acquitted of the murder of her best friend three years earlier, but some still doubt her innocence. Sharon McCone is convinced she can find evidence proving she's innocent. When Caro is brutally beaten, Sharon knows someone doesn't want to be caught.

Nora Roberts finishes her Boonsboro trilogy series with Perfect Hope. The Montgomery brothers are bringing new lie to the town of Boonsboro, Maryland, as they restore its historic hotel. While they restore the hotel, they find their own lives revamped by love. This is Ryder's story.

Baldacci, Evanovich, Roberts. I told you this is a month for big book releases. Which books are you waiting to read?

He's a good storyteller, Beth. But, I'm waiting for the new Beth Hoffman, due out sometime in 2013.

I'd love to read all of these books, but the one I'm really waiting for is The Perfect Hope by Nora Roberts.

I always look forward to a new Michael Connelly book. Plus I'll enjoy Janet's #19, too.
