The most anticipated event this month is likely the election, but we do have an exciting line-up of new adult books to look forward to as well. From our curated list, you will find a sequel to Ready Player One by Ernest Cline, the blockbuster speculative fiction book that Spielberg turned into a thrill ride of a film. Ready Player Two is poised to be a new classic as well in the genre.
We lost Clive Cussler in 2020 but his characters live on with his latest book in the Oregon series, Marauder, which features Juan Cabrillo and his derelict-looking ship armed with hidden technology capable of eliminating any bad guys.
We also lost Mary Higgins Clark, the “Queen of Suspense,” in 2020. Her latest book, in collaboration with Alafair Burke, is another mystery-romance, A Piece of My Heart.
It has been seven years since Michael Connelly has written a new “Lincoln Lawyer” novel featuring Mickey Haller who, in The Law of Innocence, is arrested when a body is found in the trunk of his Lincoln.
Mystery lovers will love the new M.C. Beaton book, Hot to Trot, featuring the crafty (and nosey) Agatha Raisin entering the equestrian world to solve a murder.
Scandanavian authors Jo Nesbo and Kjell Eriksson have new books, The Kingdom and The Night of the Fire, respectively. The first is a stand-alone noir-like thriller, and the latter features the Swedish police inspector Ann Lindel in the eighth book in that series.
David Baldacci has another Atlee Pine book (Daylight), Marc Cameron brings Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan back (Tom Clancy Shadow of the Dragon), Janet Evanovich pens her 27th Stephanie Plum mystery (Fortune and Glory), and John Connolly has brought us the 18th book featuring Charlie Parker (The Dirty South).
