‘NEXT DOOR’ IS KNOCKING

The big mystery is where have Sue Grafton, Elizabeth George, and Janet Evanovich all gone? Kathy Reichs, at No. 8, is the only mystery writer not to take the fatal voyage out of the top 10 this week. Meanwhile, Barbara Delinsky continues her shift away from straight romance with the more mainstream The Woman Next Door (240,000 copies in print after four pressruns), which lands at No. 5. In nonfiction, Bruce Wilkinson adds to his franchise with The Prayer of Jabez: Devotional, which bows its head at No. 9. And get ready for Michael Lewis’ Next: The Future Just Happened. His book logs on at No. 15.
