New Releases: Kellerman and Peters

I first learned of the Alex Delaware series after reading Faye Kellerman's The Ritual Bath and falling in love with her series. I liked her work so much that I thought it would be interesting to see what her husband's novels were like--unaware at the time that he was the far more well-known author of the two. I dropped into the middle of Jonathan Kellerman's Alex Delaware series with The Web. While some of the references to his and Robin's relationship left me confused, it was an intriguing story. Later I would learn that Kellerman's writing was far more compelling in his other works and just as intense and gritty as his wife's novels.

Book #20 in the Alex Delaware series will be released next week on March 28.

Another series which I fell into the middle of and have been addicted to ever since is Elizabeth Peters' Amelia Peabody mysteries. While the early books are far, far superior to the later ones, she's made me care so much about her characters that I'll continue to read because I want to know what becomes of them. Her next installment, Tomb of the Golden Bird, is also due out next week.

Elizabeth Peters is the penname for Barbara Mertz, an Egyptologist.

The week of March 28 will see these new titles available (among hundreds of others):
  • Gone by Jonathan Kellerman
  • Tomb of the Golden Bird by Elizabeth Peters
  • The Great Transformation: Beginnings of our Religious Traditions by Karen Armstrong
  • The Year of Pleasures by Elizabeth Berg
  • Dark Assassin by Anne Perry
  • Engaging the Enemy (Vatta's War, book 3) by Elizabeth Moon
  • Terri: The Truth by Michael Schiavo
  • Six Impossible Things Before Breakfast by Lewis Wolpert
  • Cold Kill by David Lawrence
  • Dude, Where's My Spaceship? by Dan Greenburg
  • In the Company of the Cortesan by Sarah Dunant
  • Demon by John Varley
  • Maze by Catherine Coulter
  • Henri Cartier-Bresson in India by Henri Cartier-Bresson

  • Terri: The Truth probably goes something like this:

    "I hate her father

    -The End-"
