A blog reader from Bookish.com emailed me with an update on the latest lineup of mystery and thrillers for Fall 2013.
Here's what she had to say:
"Stephen King and John Grisham both return to early classics; Lee Child, Sue Grafton
and Michael Connelly all introduce new installments in iconic thriller series; legal thriller pro Scott Turow has a new stand-alone novel and two new books could be the next film vehicles for Matthew McConaughey."
It's easy to order these new debut thrillers. Click on the cover and you'll be directed to Amazon....or click on the Amazon Search Box in the Sidebar.

AND ANOTHER THRILLER.......
THE OCTOBER LIST by Jeffery Deaver
"Perhaps the cleverest of all Deaver's exceptionally clever thrillers. If you've ever
wished you could take the film Memento to the beach, here's your chance.
Remember Merrily We Roll Along, the Sondheim musical out of Kaufman and Hart that began with its climactic scene and worked backward to the beginning? Deaver's borrowed the same concept and juiced it with assorted felonies, nonstop suspense and his trademark braininess."

AND ONE MORE THRILLER......
SOLO BY WILLIAM BOYD
"It's 1969, and, having just celebrated his forty-fifth birthday, James Bond—British special agent 007—is summoned to headquarters to receive an unusual assignment. Zanzarim, a troubled West African nation, is being ravaged by a bitter civil war, and directs Bond to quash the rebels threatening the established regime.
Bond's arrival in Africa marks the start of a feverish mission to discover the forces behind this brutal war—and he soon realizes the situation is far from straightforward. Piece by piece, Bond uncovers the real cause of the violence in Zanzarim, revealing a twisting conspiracy that extends further than he ever imagined.
Moving from rebel battlefields in West Africa to the closed doors of intelligence offices in London and Washington, this novel is at once a gripping thriller, a tensely plotted story full of memorable characters and breathtaking twists, and a masterful study of power and how it is wielded—a brilliant addition to the James Bond canon."

AND NOT SO THRILLING....
Here's another so-callled mystery which has been the sleeper of the summer...Reviewers have labeled it a "better and more exciting version of Gone Girl"...
I'm reading THE SILENT WIFE by A.S.A. Harrison, the recipient of these rave reviews. It's been labeled a "captivating cerebral psychological thriller" by some readers...
I don't get it!! I hate the characters and the plotline is bizarre...things are left unresolved..so many loose ends!
I recently broke my ankle...I'm kind of incapaciated, maybe its affected my point of view!
However, I think not....
If you want a mindless, simple, pointless read, THE SILENT WIFE
fits that description....
Not much of a thrill...not much of a mystery...not much......
