Watch for Wednesday




Ok here are the books I am watching for this week. I have a few since last time. This month is adult books. So here we go





TITLE : The Strangler
AUTHOR: William Landay
PUB. DATE: June 12 paperback

SUMMARY: Boston, 1963. Meet the charming, brawling Daley brothers. Joe is a cop whose gambling habits have dragged him down into the city’s underworld. Michael is a lawyer, always the smartest man in the room. And Ricky is the youngest son, a prince of thieves whose latest heist may be his last. For the Daleys, crime is the family business—they’re simply on different sides of it. Then a killer, a man who hunts women with brutal efficiency and no sign of stopping, strikes too close to the Daley home. The brothers unite to find the Strangler, a journey that leads to the darkest corners of Boston—and exposes an even deeper mystery that threatens to tear the family apart.

SIDE NOTES: I am a big fan of anything written about my hometown. This looks good at least to me I will get it in June and I am sure I will read it right away.

TITLE: The Stranger You Seek
AUTHOR: Amanda Kyle Williams
PUB. Date May 29 MM Paperback

SUMMARY : In the sweltering heat of an Atlanta summer, a killer is pushing the city to its breaking point, preying on the unsuspecting, writing taunting letters to the media, promising more death. Desperate to stop the Wishbone Killer, A.P.D. lieutenant Aaron Rauser turns to the one person he knows can penetrate a deranged mind: Keye Street, an ex–FBI profiler and former addict who now picks up jobs where she can get them. But the last thing Keye wants is to be pulled into the firestorm of Atlanta’s worst nightmare. And then it suddenly becomes clear that the hunter has become the hunted—and the stranger she seeks is far closer than she ever dared imagine.


SIDE NOTES: I like the description of this book. I also like the cover. Looks just like a book I can really get drawn into.

TITLE: The Nightmare Thief
AUTHOR: Meg Gardiner
PUB. DATE: June 5


SUMMARY: Autumn Reiniger expects something special for her twenty-first birthday. Daddy's already bought her the sports car, the apartment, and admission to the private college where she parties away her weekends. Now she wants excitement, and she's going to get it.

Her father signs up Autumn and five friends for an "ultimate urban reality" game: a simulated drug deal, manhunt, and jailbreak. It's a high-priced version of cops and robbers, played with fake guns and fast cars on the streets of San Francisco. Edge Adventures alerts the SFPD ahead of time that a "crime situation" is underway, so the authorities can ignore the squealing tires and desperate cries for help.

Which is convenient for the gang of real kidnappers zeroing in on their target and a mammoth payday. Because what Daddy doesn't know is that someone has spotted his hedge fund's bulging profits, and the path to those riches runs right through Daddy's Little Girl.

Working on a case nearby is forensic psychiatrist Jo Beckett and her partner Gabe Quintana. When the pair encounters a suspicious group of men carting six sullen college kids to the woods for a supposed wilderness adventure, alarm bells ring. Jo takes a closer look, and winds up with an invite to Autumn Reiniger's twenty-first birthday party-a party they may never leave.


SIDE NOTES: This looks like a great book with a interesting plot. This author is new to me so I will see how it works out when I get it.

TITLE : I'm Watching You
AUTHOR: Mary Burton
PUB.DATE: June 1 MM Paperback


SUMMARY : An obsessed killer is blazing a bloody trail near Richmond, Virginia, toward his ultimate prize - and only one homicide detective can hope to stop the madness...The first kill was easy. The second much easier. No guilt, no remorse, just a rush of adrenaline surging through him as each life drains away, and the pleasure of knowing their deaths help his beloved Lindsay. And there are so many more who deserve to die...The first twisted gift to Lindsay O'Neil arrives hidden in a bouquet of flowers. When her estranged husband, Detective Zack Kier, is assigned to the case, Lindsay's past comes back with a vengeance. Only Zack knows the dark secret she lives with - or so she thinks. Now nothing can prepare her for the nightmare to come - because everything Lindsay's stalker does is for her. And when she spurns his gifts, she and those she loves most become targets of a madman whose rage is growing, who is waiting, watching, closer than she ever feared...


 SIDE NOTES: Okay as you can see I like hard boil mysteries. They really draw me in.

***********************************************************************************

I also like a break from the hard core mysteries and like to take in "Cozy Mysteries" here is some I will pick up.




TITLE: Last Writes
AUTHOR: Laura Levine
PUB DATE: May 1st MM Paperback



SUMMARY: Jaine still hasn't found a good man - or a way to keep all those sugary snacks from going straight to her hips. But - with a little help from her best friend Kandi - she's finally landed a gig as a sitcom writer! True, Muffy 'n Me isn't going to win any Emmys, but for Jaine, being on staff sure beats writing boring brochures and bad resumes. Until the plot thickens - with murder...Jaine figures the trouble all started when Muffy 'n Me's hottest star, gorgeous Quinn Kirkland, seduced the head writer - whose husband also works on the show. But when Quinn's caught in bed with the barely-legal actress who plays his niece, things really heat up - and his many jealous girlfriends start to figure things out...So when the no-good heartthrob drops dead after nibbling a poisoned doughnut, Jaine isn't terribly surprised. But who could have done it? A competitive co-star and a couple of scorned lovers top Jaine's list of suspects, but the police have zeroed in on her man-crazy pal Kandi. Now Jaine has to figure out who finally stopped Quinn's cheatin' heart - before her best friend ends up behind bars...

Okay a couple of things

First this is a rare Friday post. I am almost finished "Darker Than Night " by John Lutz. I do have to change my April Reads.  I will not be reading "An Ice Cold Grave" By  Charlaine Harris. Like most of you I have stacks and stacks of books in my house and I have misplaced my copy of the book. I will add it when I find it. So I added a diffrent book. "Deep Freeze" By Thom Racina.

Second I will have a longer Watch for Wednesday this week because I missed last Wednesday. I ordered some books from Amazon and I noticed I reordered a book so that means we will have another giveaway   YEAHHHHHHHHHH. The last one went well but I will be promoting this one eveywhere I can to gain more members.

Update Monday #12

Well, I have not been reading as much as I should this week and that is because I am working more (my boss is out this week so I am doing his job too) The good thing is I have 2 days off coming up and do plan on catching up on my reading. I also have to do my spring cleaning this week. So I have a full plate this week so I will not be posting on Wednesday but I will make up for it. I also have been getting a ton of free books for my Kindle so I am going to start using that to read. So I will let you know what I am up too later this week. Now where did I put that book?

TITLE : Playing Dead
AUTHOR: Julia Heaberlin


SUMMARY : “Dear Tommie: Have you ever wondered about who you are?”
The letter that turns Tommie McCloud’s world upside down arrives from a stranger only days after her father’s death. The woman who wrote it claims that Tommie is her daughter—and that she was kidnapped as a baby thirty-one years ago.

Tommie wants to believe it’s all a hoax, but suddenly a girl who grew up on a Texas ranch finds herself linked to a horrific past: the slaughter of a family in Chicago, the murder of an Oklahoma beauty queen, and the kidnapping of a little girl named Adriana. Tommie races along a twisting, nightmarish path while an unseen stalker is determined to keep old secrets locked inside the dementia-battered brain of the woman who Tommie always thought was her real mother. With everything she has ever believed in question, and no one she can trust, Tommie must discover the truth about the girl who vanished—and the very real threats that still remain.

AUTHOR: Sara Blaedel


SUMMARY:
A young woman in Copenhagen, Susanne Hansson, becomes the victim of an unusually brutal rape attack in her own home. Detective inspector Louise Rick is summoned to talk to the victim, where she quickly determines that Susanne met the rapist via a dating website, a fact that Susanne shamefully tries to hide, especially from her domineering mother.
The police suspect that the rapist may have been caught on video in the subway, so Louise and a colleague go through the tapes. They’re lucky enough to find him, but unfortunately the image is blurry and shows him only in profile. While the police investigation is making progress, things take a negative turn for Susanne, who tries to commit suicide. The rape is not the only reason.
In the meantime Louise becomes more and more immersed in the online dating world. In her search she comes across the web site “nightwatch.dk,” which allows her to upload images that show people out in the night-time scene and who they’re with. She finds a picture of the man, who is now calling himself “Prinzz.” She contacts him using the name “Princess,” and they agree to meet.

RELEASE DATE : June 12th

SIDE NOTES: This is the second book in a series but the first in english that I have seen from this author. I hoping this will be a good book.
