In My Mailbox (August 22, 2010)

I guarantee that your TBR pile will grow when you see all the cool books everyone gets. You will discover lots of wonderful blogs and lots of books that you won't be able to live without.

I got one lonely book this week. I am a big fan of Iris Johansen and have been for quite a few years. I have 67 of her books in my personal collection according to LibraryThing. So I was very excited to receive a copy of Shadow Zone this week.

Here is the product description from Amazon:
While mapping the ancient underwater city of Marinth in the Atlantic Ocean, submersible designer Hannah Bryson makes a shocking discovery: she may have finally uncovered the truth about the once-glorious city’s mysterious demise. Long ago it was a thriving metropolis bursting with culture and life—Marinth’s sudden disappearance has plagued scientists for years. But now, with her unexpected new findings, Hannah realizes that the ancient city’s explosive secret could have dire consequences for the modern-day world.

But Hannah isn’t the only one who realizes it. When her key artifact is hijacked en route to a research lab, she is thrust into an adventure in which she must match wits against a terrifying enemy who will kill anyone who stands in his way. And when Hannah becomes his target, she knows that her best hope for survival lies with Kirov, a mysterious and deadly man from her past. Together they will race to unravel Marinth’s last great secret in order to prevent a catastrophe of global proportions. Before the lethal game is over, however, Hannah will realize that no one is above suspicion.
A nice small mailbox will give me a chance to feel like I am catching up a little. What did you get in your mailbox this week? 


  1. Shadow Zone looks quite interesting. Hope you enjoy reading it.

  2. This one looks good! I love Iris Johansen's books as well! I have this one from the library... whether or not I get to it before the due date is debatable, but I can always put it back on hold. I hope you enjoy it! Happy reading. :)

  3. I love Iris Johansen books, particularly her Eve Duncan series. I haven't read any of the books she has written with Roy yet. Looking forward to reading your review.

  4. 67 books? WOW, so many. The writer must be good. Enjoy the book you got.
