New Michael Harvey Book!

I don't often write about a book I've yet to read, but I'm so looking forward to this one that I can't contain my excitment. Since reading The Third Rail by Michael Harvey last month, I've been anxiously awaiting the next book We All Fall Down, which went on sale last week, July 12, 2011. Harvey left a few things unanswered in the last one and I'm just dying to find out what happens.

Here's the synopsis from the publisher:

Chicago cop turned private investigator Michael Kelly is racing to save his city from a deadly new foe: a biological weapon unleashed underground.

When a lightbulb falls in a subway tunnel, it releases a pathogen that could kill millions. While the mayor postures, people begin to die, especially on the city’s grim West Side. Hospitals become morgues. L trains are converted into rolling hearses. Finally, the government acts, sealing off entire sections of the city—but are they keeping people out or in? Meanwhile, Michael Kelly’s hunt for the people who poisoned his city takes him into the tangled underworld of Chicago’s West Side gangs and the even more frightening world of black biology—an elite discipline emerging from the nation’s premier labs, where scientists play God and will stop at nothing to preserve their secrecy.

It’s a brave new world . . . and the most audacious page-turner yet from an emerging modern master.
From Knopf Publishers.

Doesn't that sound fantastic?

I going to have to bump this one to the top of the to-be-read pile.

Thanks so much for your comment. I really appreciate it. Unfortunately, I've been getting lots of spam comments, so I'm turning on word verification to help keep spammers away. I know it's a pain; I don't like it either. Hopefully, in time I'll be able to turn it off again. Thank you!
