Since there are no new series starting up this week, I thought I might as well up a few covers I found while updating the author pages. Let’s start with the upcoming In Death book from J.D. Robb, Apprentice in Death, which has a release date of September 6th.
The shots came quickly, silently, and with deadly accuracy. Within seconds, three people were dead at Central Park’s ice skating rink. The victims: a talented young skater, a doctor, and a teacher. As random as random can be.
Eve Dallas has seen a lot of killers during her time with the NYPSD, but never one like this. After reviewing security videos, it becomes clear that the victims were killed by a sniper firing a tactical laser rifle, who could have been miles away when the trigger was pulled. And though the locations where the shooter could have set up seem endless, the list of people with that particular skill set is finite: police, military, professional killer.
Eve’s husband, Roarke, has unlimited resources—and genius—at his disposal. And when his computer program leads Eve to the location of the sniper, she learns a shocking fact: There were two—one older, one younger. Someone is being trained by an expert in the science of killing, and they have an agenda. Central Park was just a warm-up. And as another sniper attack shakes the city to its core, Eve realizes that though we’re all shaped by the people around us, there are those who are just born evil…
This next one is another novella collection from Kelley Armstrong‘s Women of the Otherworld series. Otherworld Chills will be released on October 4th.
And this final one is from Kim Harrison. The Operator is the second book of her Peri Reed Chronicles, and it will be out on November 22nd.
