I am so excited! Two of my favorite mystery authors have new audiobooksout this week!
John Sandford and Phillip Margolin are amazing thriller writers and I can’t wait to get my hands on their latest books. Here, let me try to calm down long enough to tell you about them…
Storm Prey by John Sandford
John Sandford’s Storm Prey, read by Richard Ferrone, is the twentieth entry in the Lucas Davenport series.
One of the best things about these books is the evolution of the characters. In this installment, Lucas’s wife, Weather, becomes a witness after she sees some thieves after a botched pharmacy robbery. They will, of course, strive to eliminate her.
Sandford really shines with the police procedural. Every book is different, yet the characters remain familiar. I always enjoy his work, especially the Davenport books… But I do admit to being crazy about Virgil Flowers as well. I wonder when readers will see him again?
Phillip Margolin is another master of the mystery. While the audiobook version isn’t out yet, I have to mention it! This is a sequel to his bestseller, Executive Privilege. At the center of the action are PI Dana Cutler and law clerk Brad Miller. A woman on death row wants to appeal to the Supreme Court, but this hearing could expose some major wrongdoing within the CIA. Margolin’s thrillers are always very fast paced and satisfying to read. I’m sure this will be no exception.
A new Reacher novel
Lee Child is back with a new Reacher novel: 61 Hours, narrated by Dick Hill. Jack Reacher appears for the fourteenth time in this new novel. The ex-military police officer winds up stranded in South Dakota where the cops are sorely ill equipped to handle a drug cartel’s meth lab. I haven’t read Reacher, but I hear that fans will be pleased about some new insights into the character…
Blood Oath: The President’s Vampire by Christopher Farnsworth
Christopher Farnsworth’s Blood Oath: The President’s Vampire (narrator unknown) is really generating buzz. This is the first of a series in which a vampire is sworn to protect the President of the United States. I suppose it had to happen Between the popularity of the ‘mash-ups’ – such as Pride and Prejudice and Zombies – and the current vampire obsession – thanks to Twilight – it was inevitable that vampires would find their way into the White House.
My first reaction was to skip over this book and not even think about including it here. Then I started reading reviews. It seems that critics are enjoying this novel. If you have a hankering for a combination spy/vampire novel, it looks like you’re in luck.
