There are two more big names coming with books in October and 3 other popular but not quite as big names. I will cover those big ones first.
Iris Johansen gives us Silencing Eve on October 1. This is the final title in the new trilogy of Eve Duncan, the forensic sculptor. The series starts with Taking Eve; continues with higher stakes in Hunting Eve and ends with this title. Will the secrets of Eve's past overtake her future and will she survive? Those who read this series will be waiting to find out.
Stuart Woods gives us another Stone Barrington title with Doing Hard Time on October 8. Typical Woods fare when Stone makes a business trip to Bel Air and finds himself involved with a case that had seemingly been resolved but has returned in full force—with lethal results.
On October 15, Scott Turow publishes Identical. This is a Kindle County Legal Thriller and is a story loosely based on the myth of Castor and Pollux. Paul and Cass Giannis are identical twins. In 2008, Paul is running for mayor while his twin, Cass is getting out of prison after killing his girlfriend 25 years before. An ex-FBI agent and a former homicide detective are investigating the old case for the victims family. A complex tale like only Turow can tell.
Next, let's talk about Raymond Khoury's latest. He is growing in popularity with each title and this one, Rasputin's Shadow might send him all the way. Khoury is definitely recommended for those who like Dan Brown. His novels have lots of twists and turns and generally have something to do with events that happened in the past. In this particular case, it was a in the early 1900's when miners in the Ural Mountains suddenly started attacking each other and the whole site was blown up to prevent discovery of the incident. If you have read Khoury in the past, FBI Agent Sean Reilly returns to investigate.
Lastly, Val McDermid, British mystery author, returns with Cross and Burn which comes out on October 22. Many who read McDermid, remember her most clearly for Wire in the Blood a dark suspenseful award winner. They also, perhaps thought that she was through with the Tony Hill and Carol Jordan series with her last book Retribution which left the two series characters not speaking with each other. But with this title, murder victims who closely resemble Carol are turning up and suspicion is raised. Tony and Carol have to work together to find the solution and to protect themselves and each other.
If any of these attract your attention, get your name on the lists.
