- Red Herring by Archer Mayor Another in the long-running and generally excellent Joe Gunther series set in Vermont. Crime in Vermont? Yeah, it happens. Who knew? There's even a Vermont Bureau of Investigation.
- Murder on the Ballarat Train by Kerry Greenwood. A Phryne Fisher mystery set in 1920's Australia by an author new to me. I've been reading about this series on some of the blogs so thought I'd take a look.
- The Reversal by Michael Connelly A Harry Bosch/Mickey Haller thriller. I don't read Connelly regularly, but when I do, he mostly delivers. This new one sounds particularly interesting. His books are usually set in L.A. Favorite Connellys? The Poet, Trunk Music, Echo Park and Blood Work.
- Dark Mirror by Barry Maitland A Brock and Kolla police procedural set in England. A series I've just discovered and like very much.
- Shoot to Thrill by P.J. Tracy Been waiting several years for this next Monkeewrench novel (by a mother/daughter writing team), set in Minnesota. I'm hoping it was worth the wait. This is a series well worth searching for. Begin at the beginning with: Monkeewrench
- Worth Dying For by Lee Child Last but not least, the sequel to 61 Hours by the unchallenged master of the thriller-diller. Two books in one year is a rare treat from Lee, so needless to say, I've been waiting with bated breath.

Friday Library Loot
In the spirit of bringing coals to Newcastle, I've just gotten back from the library with an armload of loot. A bonanza of mystery/thrillers. (Lately I seem to be in a mystery/thriller mood. More so than usual, I mean.)
