Coming Soon! New Mystery Releases
This month is another exciting month for mystery suspense readers. Long popular series, a revival of a series most of us thought had ended, and a new series for a popular author are just a few among the list.
It seems every month this summer has offered so many favorites. At least for me. You too? That is certainly one of the benefits of a series. Knowing that each year (or almost) another book will be written and released. When you get attached to a character, you appreciate every new opportunity to read more about them.
You can see the list of September’s releases right here, but there are a few that we will highlight today in order of release.
The Girl in the Spider’s Web
A Lisbeth Salander novel, continuing Stieg Larsson’s Millennium series, author David Lagercrantz.
The first that must be mentioned is The Girl in the Spider’s Web. Have you read any of Stieg Larsson’s Millennium series? The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo became a huge bestseller as well as an award winner with its release in 2005 in Sweden and in 2008 in the United Kingdom.
Did you realize that each of the successful series were released after the author’s death? He had written the manuscripts for his own pleasure. Upon his death they were discovered and published. Apparently on his computer were some additional partially completed drafts, along with summaries and ideas for up to ten novels in the series.
In 2013, the Swedish published contracted with David Lagercrantz to write a fourth book in the series. It’s exciting for fans to know there may be more yet. His novel will be reelased on September 1, 2015. A very anticipated start to a new month.
Kill and Run, Lauren Carr’s New Series
On the 4th of Sepember a new series begins written by bestselling author Lauren Carr. I’ve grown very attached to Ms. Carr’s series characters. That may be why I am so excited about the release of the first in her new series.
The son and daughter of Mac Faraday (of the Mac Faraday series) and Joshua Thornton (Lovers in Crime series) have fallen in love. Now married and living in Washington DC, it will be the beginning of a more intense series with politics and the government included.
The dynamic setting and the youth of main characters, Murphy Thornton and Jessica Faraday, will bring an edge to the series that we haven’t seen in her other series.
In the first book, five women are found brutally murdered. When no connection is found between the women, Lieutenant Murphy Thornton, with the USN is called in as part of the investigation. As he tries to determine what the women had in common, his own step mother, homicide detective Cameron Gates, becomes involved.
With the help of his new wife, Jessica, they must sift through the lies, past and present, to stop a killer.
Make Me, by Lee Child
Lee Child’s loved character, Jack Reacher, is back for another stop, scheduled for release on September 8th. This time, Jack gets off the bus in the town of Mother’s Rest, wondering how it got its name. A very small town in the middle of acres of wheat fields holds lethal secrets.
When a woman mistakes him for her partner in an investigation, Jack is drawn into a cross country race that includes assassins and hidden internet connections. The summary says, “he must confront the worst nightmare he could imagine…” If you’ve read Jack Reacher’s stories, you will know he’s been up against some pretty bad stuff. So what could be considered his worst nightmare?
Always irresistible, the 20th book in Lee Child’s successful series is already in my preorder list. Once you get to know Jack, you can’t get enough of him.
There is, as usual, something for everyone. Recurring series characters, thrillers, romantic suspense, and cozies can all be found on the the list at Mystery Suspense Reviews. If you have any to add, please let me know. If you read a favorite, let us know that too.
