My Reading List: Coming Soon ...

I still have a few titles released this summer to catch up with: James Lee Burke, The Glass Rainbow (a Dave Robicheaux novel); Tana French, Faithful Place; Jeffrey Deaver, The Burning Wire (a Lincoln Rhyme sequel); and John Verdun, Think of a Number. Today is also the release date for the Overlook Press reprint of David Carkeet's The Full Catastrophe, putting this sequel to Double Negative back into print at last, in softcover.

Next week, Nevada Barr's new Anna Pigeon crime novel comes out: Burn. And later in August I'm looking forward to Peter Robinson, Bad Boy; Charles Todd, An Impartial Witness; and Donna Leon, Willful Behavior. Notice how a good series can keep a reader hooked for years?

September brings two books I'm very eager to have and hold: the new Billy Boyle World War II novel from James Benn, Rag and Bone; and Louise Penny's formidable Bury Your Dead.

And in October, there will be Robert B. Parker (posthumously) with Painted Ladies; Lee Child, Worth Dying For; and Archer Mayor's new Joe Gunther offering, Red Herring. Tomorrow I'll write about Red Herring and how it fits into this long-running Vermont series.
