  15. Just finished Queen of Bedlam by Robert McCammon, the 2nd in the Matthew Corbett series. I thought the first book of the series, Speaks the Nightbird, was brilliant and would be difficult to top, but he damn near did it with this book. In retrospect, the first book seemed more like a prequel, with a different setting (the Carolina colonies), while Queen of Bedlam brings him to New York where it seems like the rest of the series may take place. Though I could be wrong about that. In any case, it's a great book using early New York City circa 1702 (with a bustling population of 5,000) as a historical fictional backdrop for a very compelling mystery plot. McCammon is probably the best "little known" author around in my opinion. Also, the audio edition, narrated by Edoardo Ballerini is very well done.
