We've come across a couple more mysteries we'll overlooked in the August MLB News.
Alex Cross's Trial by James Patterson--this is a sort of "between the numbers" Alex Cross book purporting to be a story, called Trial, written by Cross to tell the story of his great uncle Abraham and his struggle against the Klan in the 1940's. The next regular Cross novel, I, Alex Cross, comes out in November.
Wife of the Gods by Kwei J. Quarty--a fascinating view of modern Africa through the eyes of police inspector Darko Dawson who returns to his childhood home in rural Ghana to investigate a murder
In case you missed them, here are the other titles we left out:
Sand Sharks by Margaret Maron--if you're a fan of the Deborah Knott series you won't want to miss this latest installment
Paths of the Air by Alys Clare--the eleventh in this popular Hawkenlye medieval series featuring Abbess Helewise and Joss D'Acquin
No Law in the Land by Michael Jecks--another great historical mystery series featuring bailiff Simon Puttock and his friend Sir Baldwin Furnshill, this is the 26th.
The August-September issue of the MLB News is available for download. The printed version of the News goes in the mail today but you can download it right now from the website and view it on screen or print it.
Our Fall Coffee & Crime series continues on September 26 with legendary Pittsburgh newspaper columnist Barbara Cloud. During her long career Barbara interviewed just about everyone who was anyone and we expect a fascinating morning of insider info on celebrities during our author talk.
