Mailbox Monday

I've been doing the Snoopy Happy Dance all week long! Mailbox Monday is hosted by Marcia of The Printed Page. Check it out, and see what other readers are finding in their mailboxes! What books came into your home last week?

Hell's Gate by Stephen Frey

From "New York Times"-bestselling author Frey comes a riveting new thriller about a world-weary star litigator who goes west to become a firefighter in the nation's greatest woodland--and stumbles across the toughest case of his career. (See more below in my Friday Finds post!)

David Brown of Simon and Schuster gets a big shout out and THANK YOU for sending this book to me! It's next on the teetering tower o'TBR books!

The Siege by Stephen White

Sam Purdy takes center stage in a story that feels ripped from tomorrow’s headlines. From the first page on, readers need to be buckled in for a nonstop ride full of terror and pathos. As a lovely weekend approaches on the Yale campus it appears that a number of students—including the sons of both the Secretary of the Army and newest Supreme Court justice—may have gone missing. Kidnapping? Terrorism? The authorities aren’t sure. But the high-profile disappearances draw the attention of the CIA and the FBI’s vaunted Hostage Rescue Team. Attention quickly focuses on the fortress-like tomb of one of Yale’s secret societies. Suspended Boulder police detective Sam Purdy soon finds himself in New Haven, where he is quickly snared by an unlikely pair of Feds: FBI agent Christopher Poe and CIA analyst Deirdre Drake. Sam, Poe, and Dee join together, desperately trying to solve the riddle of what is going on inside the windowless stone tomb on the edge of campus. The clock is pounding in their ears. The unknown enemy is playing by no known rules . . . is making no demands . . . is refusing to communicate with the hostage negotiator . . . is somehow anticipating every FBI move . . . is completely unconcerned about getting away . . . And . . . is sending students, one by one, out of the building’s front door to die.

Thanks go out to the wonderful Jamie McDonald,a publicist at Dutton, Penguin!

I Can See You by Karen Rose

The victim of a horrendous attack in "Don't Tell," Evie Wilson retreats into the virtual realm to seek refuge from the public's eye. When homicide detective Noah Webster seeks Evie's technological expertise to help solve a murder, they don't realize the killer is closer than they think.

Thanks to Miriam at Hachette Books! I'm looking forward to reading this book. Karen Rose is a new author to me, and it sounds great!!

Dark Time: Mortal Path by Dakota Banks

It's been 300 years since Maliha Crayne sold her soul to a demon and became its assassin. Now she wants her soul back. A haunted killer with the blood of countless victims on her hands, Maliha has finally discovered a way to nullify the demonic pact that chains her.

Thanks go out to TJ Dietderich of Planned Television Arts for this book. I love series and I think this one looks particularly interesting!

Linda Nguyen said...

Hi Kelly,

Thank you for stopping by my blog. I really appreciate it. =)

Don't feel bad about being late about commenting on posts. I'm playing catch up too and it's difficult. Who knew it would be this hard to spread the commenting love? So long as I try my best to get back to other book blogers by commenting on their blog, I think I'm doing okay.

I hope you'll enjoy I Can See You by Karen Rose. I read it last week and really enjoyed it. It's one of the best suspense/thrillers I've read so far, and Karen Rose is a new author to me too.

Enjoy your books! Happy reading!
