Seven for Seven

We have seven new audiobooks on the shelf for the seventh month of the year (these aren’t the only audiobooks we’re getting this month, but I liked the ‘7 for 7’ theme. I’ll post other new titles later.)

Tomb of the Golden Bird - by Elizabeth Peters. The 18th installment of the award-winning Amelia Peabody mystery series.

Hundred-dollar Baby - by Robert Parker. The 34th novel featuring Boston private investigator Spenser (does the guy have a first name?).

The Fifth Horseman - by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro. Another in the "Women’s Murder Club" series. The Sixth Target is currently on our New Books shelf.

Robert Ludlum’s The Paris Option - by Robert Ludlum and Gayle Lynds. Apparently this author is so popular he begins the titles of his books with his own name. This is a “Covert-One” novel.

Freakonomics: a rogue economist explores the hidden side of everything - by Steven Levitt and Stephen Dubner. Am I the only person on the planet who hasn’t read this book?

Memory in Death and Midnight in Death - by J.D. Robb (a.k.a. Nora Roberts). Her name is mentioned in hushed tones amongst the mass-market paperback set, as the 'Queen of the $8.00 romance novel'. But she also writes gritty detective novels set in New York City in the semi-near future: 2059. (I hope to still be alive then, but maybe not living in the New York of Robb’s vision).
