Now that school is almost finished, I am looking forward to two glorious months of reading time ahead of me; at least as much time as I can with two wonderful kiddies underfoot. Hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine, this meme takes a look at upcoming releases and those novels which we are eagerly anticipating. Here are a couple of novels I am looking forward to reading this summer.
The Marks of Cain
by Tom Knox
Release Date: July 26, 2011 (Softcover)
2011 Plume Books
When David Martinez receives an ancient map from his dying grandfather, he is led into the heart of the Basque mountains, where a genetic curse lies buried- and a frightening secret about the Western world is hidden. Meanwhile, London journalist Simon Quinn is investigating two violent murders. Both victims had once been interned in a top-secret Nazi camp-and both came from the Basque region.
Very Bad Men
by Harry Dolan
Release Date: July 12, 2011 (Hardcover)
2011 Putnam Adult
David Loogan returns! Loogan is living in Ann Arbor with Detective Elizabeth Waishkey and her daughter, Sarah. He's settled into a quiet routine as editor of the mystery magazine Gray Streets-until one day he finds a manuscript outside his door. It begins: "I killed Henry Kormoran."
Anthony Lark has a list of names-Terry Dawtrey, Sutton Bell, Henry Kormoran. To his eyes, the names glow red on the page. They move. They breathe. The people on the list have little in common except that seventeen years ago they were involved in a notorious robbery. And now Anthony Lark is hunting them down, and he won't stop until every one of them is dead.
