This month on Booked for Breakfast, our online mystery and thriller book club, the intensity grows with each book:
- Julia Navarro's The Bible of Clay: From the internationally bestselling author of The Brotherhood of the Holy Shroud comes this electrifying new suspense thriller about a biblical discovery in the remote Iraqi desert--and a deadly struggle being waged on the eve of war to uncover a truth that's waited 3,000 years to be told. . . .
- Manda Scott's The Crystal Skull: In a spellbinding blend of history, myth, and science, bestselling novelist Manda Scott unleashes a thriller that sweeps from the secrets of the Mayans to the court of a sixteenth-century queen to a shattering end-times prophecy.
- John Ramsey Miller's Smoke & Mirrors: The murder was shocking in its brutality: A thousand-yard high-velocity shot that left an innocent nineteen-year-old babysitter dead on a Mississippi plantation. At first, police called it a hunting accident. But the killer left a calling card--for ex–U.S. marshall Winter Massey. And when Massey investigates, he knows exactly who the shooter is. He just doesn't know why.
