Water Dancer is a must-read.  Every page is laced through with dense, gorgeously evocative descriptions of a vanished world and steeped in its own vivid vocabulary.

Nowhere Man is the 2nd installment of the Orphan X series, it's great.

Carved in Bone is a great debut mystery.  If you're a fan of CSI, NCIS, Patricia Cornwell, and Kathy Reichs this book is for you.

The Beautiful Ones is  Prince's brilliant coming-of-age-and-into-superstardom story of one of the greatest artists of all time  It features never-before-seen photos, original scrapbooks and lyric sheets, and the exquisite memoir he began writing before his tragic death.

Ghost Story is the 13th Harry Dresden novel.  Did you know that Harry is the only wizard listed in the Chicago phone book?  Usually, by the 13th in a series, I'm done!  Not with the Dresden stories, I'm hooked and Butcher manages to keep the stories fresh.
