The second novel in the Veronica Mars book series will be released on October 24, 2014 and now Amazon and Barnes and Noble have new details about the upcoming book.
No cover art has been revealed but we expect Rob Thomas to make an announcement either publicly or in an email to Kickstarter backers in the near future containing the official cover.
In addition to being able to pre-order, Amazon even has a full summary of the of the novel on their website that reads:
“In the second book in the New York Times bestselling mystery series, Veronica Mars is back with a case that will expose the hidden workings of one of Neptune’s most murderous locations.
The Neptune Grand has always been the seaside town’s ritziest hotel, despite the shady dealings and high-profile scandals that seem to follow its elite guests. When a woman claims that she was brutally assaulted in one of its rooms and left for dead by a staff member, the owners know that they have a potential powder keg on their hands. They turn to Veronica to disprove – or prove – the woman’s story.
The case is a complicated mix of hard facts, mysterious occurrences, and uncooperative witnesses. The hotel refuses to turn over its reservation list and the victim won’t divulge who she was meeting that night. Add in the facts that the attack happened months ago, the victim’s memory is fuzzy, and there are holes in the hotel’s surveillance system, and Veronica has a convoluted mess on her hands. As she works to fill in the missing pieces, it becomes clear that someone is lying – but who? And why?”
The summary doesn’t give anything away regarding the end of the first novel which is good for anyone who wants to remain spoiler free. If you have not already read the first book in the series we suggest you pick it up and get as much of the Veronica Mars universe as you can.
After the events of The Thousand Dollar Tan Line do you think that this mystery sounds like a worthy successor?
