Mailbox Mondays

Mailbox Monday is still on tour, with March’s spot being at I’m Booking It.

Another good week for me – if only I could stay away from the PBS Box-of-Book feature! Of course, that also means that I’m sending out books (which is a very good thing), but I’m bringing books in quicker than I can read! Oh well. Here’s what came:




The Murder Game by Beverly Barton
     The game is simple – he is the Hunter. They are the Prey. He gives them a chance to escape. To run. To hide. To outsmart him. But eventually, he catches them. And that’s when the game gets really terrifying… Private investigator Griffin Powell and FBI agent Nicole Baxter know a lot about serial killers – they took one down together. But this new killer is as sadistic as they’ve ever seen. He likes his little games, and he especially likes forcing Nic and Griff to play along. Every unsolvable clue, every posed victim, every taunting phone call – it’s all part of his twisted, elaborate plan. And then the Hunter calls, wanting to know if they’re really ready to play… There’s a new game now, and it’s much more deadly than the first. A brutal psychopath needs a worthy adversary. He won’t stop until he can hunt the most precious prey of all – Nicole. And with his partner in a killer’s sights, Griff is playing for the biggest stakes of his life.




Seven Deadly Wonders by Matthew Reilly
     A legend of the ancient world decrees that every 4,500 years, a terrible solar event will wreak worldwide destruction … but whoever sets the Golden Capstone atop the Great Pyramid at Giza will avert disaster and gain the ultimate priza: a millennium of world dominence. Now the Sun is turning once again and nation will battle nation to retrieve the missing Capstone … but a group of small nations, led by super-soldier Jack West Jr., bands together to prevent any one country from attaining this frightening power. Thus the greatest treasure hunt of all time begins – an adrenaline-fueled race on a global battlefield.




Bone Cold by Erica Spindler

     Twenty-three years ago, Anna North survived a living nightmare. A madman kidnapped her, cut off her pinkie, then vanished. Today Anna lives in New Orleans, writing dark thrillers under another name. She finally feels safe. Suddenly Anna’s quiet life takes a frightening turn. Letters start to arrive from a disturbed fan. Anna is followed, her apartment is broken into. Then a close friend disappears. Anna turns to homicide detective Quentin Malone, but Malone’s more concerned with the recent murders of two women in the French Quarter. But after a third victim is found – a redhead like Anna, her pinkie severed – Malone is forced to acknowledge that Anna is his link to the killer … and could be the next target. Now Anna must face the horrifying truth – her past has caught up with her. The nightmare has begun again.

  1. I have almost an entire shelf of Beverly Bartons thrillers and Erica Spindler is an excellent choice for reading, the one you have is one I want to read also… Reilly have not gotten any books by but have heard about his work and people say he is a good read!

  2. Mystica & Mary – thanks for stopping by! I’m really looking forward to these 🙂

    Jackie – I love Barton and Spindler, both! I’ve also heard good things about Reilly’s books so I was excited when I was able to find this one on PBS!
