Waiting on Wednesday for July 24th

Good morning.  I'm participating in Waiting on Wednesday, a weekly event hosted at Breaking the Spine where we talk about books we're currently waiting to get published.

Of course, a couple that would be on my list for the next few weeks I've read thanks to ARCs I've gotten.

Anyway, this week, I'm waiting for Tell No Lies by Gregg Hurwitz.

The description at Amazon reads:

A series of anonymous threats intended for others puts a man—and everyone he loves—in the path of a relentless killer

Daniel Brasher has always been something of a disappointment to his old-money aristocratic San Francisco mother. Daniel left his high-paying job as a money manager to marry his community organizer wife and work at a job he loves, leading group counseling sessions with recently paroled ex-cons. Now he’s ready to move on and start a private practice.

But before he leaves, he finds an envelope in his department mailbox—one intended for someone else that was placed in his slot by accident. Inside it is an unsigned piece of paper, a note that says only “admit what you’ve done or you will bleed for it. you have 'til november 15 at midnite.” The deadline has already passed and the person to whom the envelope was addressed was brutally murdered. But this first warning is only the beginning.

Soon, Daniel finds more warnings in his office mail, to people that the police cannot track down, and to victims that cannot be saved. Daniel's efforts, however, have alerted the killer to his involvement and next he gets a threat of his own. Now, with the clock ticking, Daniel—with no clue what he’s supposed to have done or to what action he must confess—must somehow appease, or outwit, a seemingly unstoppable killer.

I'm not normally a thriller guy, but I do enjoy Gregg's books quite a bit.  Of course, I still haven't read his last one.  I like to read them when I know I'll have lots of time since I never want to put the book down.  That hasn't happened quite yet.

I also find it interesting that this book is set in San Francisco since most of his books are set in Los Angeles.

The book comes out August 20th.
