Sorry about yesterday's problem with my blog. I had intended to share new arrivals, so I'll share them today.
I'm kicking the list off with the latest in a favorite series. Lethal Treasure is Jane K. Cleland's new Josie Prescott Antiques mystery. Josie heads off to a storage unit auction. The owner of a local interior design store asks her to appraise his unit, but he never returns home that night. When he's found dead, Josie's knowledge of antiques may lead to a killer.
Carole Nelson Douglas' Midnight Louie books follow the feline private eye as he sniffs out the truth (and maybe some tuna) on the Vegas Strip. Cat in an Alien X-Ray takes the Las Vegas gang on a science fiction roller coaster ride, as Midnight Louise and company encounter UFO enthusiasts attracted by the Area 51 attraction on the Strip. And, someone else is attracted to the site of the new attraction, a killer who dumped a body there. Midnight Louie's roommate, Temple Barr, PR expert, puts her amateur detective skills to use to protect a client.
Then there's the new Harlan Donnally novel by Steven Gore, A Criminal Defense. Ex-SFPD detective Harlan Donnally is running a small cafe north of San Francisco. But when Mark Hamlin, a sleazy criminal defense lawyer is found murdered under the Golden Gate Bridge, Donnally is drawn back into a twisted and corrupt world he thought he'd left behind.
April 13 is release date for a debut mystery, Murder, She Rode by Holly Menino.
Chelsea Quinn Yarbro's Saint-Germain cycle is the longest-running series about a vampire in modern literature. The latest addition isNight Pilgrims. Saint-Germain is living in a monastery in Egypt when he is hired to guide a group of pilgrims to underground churches in southern Egypt. The pilgrims fall prey to the trails of travel in the Holy Lands, and a visit to the Chapel of the Holy Grail brings quarrels to a head. Saint-Germain must use all is diplomacy and some of his strength to keep the pilgrims from slaughtering each other.
It's a terrific selection, isn't it? Anything here that you're anticipating?
