Stieg Larsson's The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo is back in first place among Amazon's best-selling Kindle e-books for the week ending April 24. Harlan Coben's standalone thriller Caught and Larsson's The Girl Who Played With Fire, another title from the Swedish author's internationally bestselling Millennium trilogy, are in second and third place, according to a list released April 27 by Publishers Marketplace.

New to the bestseller list is Every Last One by American author and journalist Anna Quindlen, whose others novels include One True Thing (Meryl Streep earned an Academy Award for her role in the 1998 film adaptation). Published on April 13, Every Last One tells the story of a devoted mother and the effects of depression and violence on her and her family.

Spending a second week in the top ten is The Shadow of Your Smile by prolific suspense novelist Mary Higgins Clark. The book's publisher calls the title "a spellbinding thriller revolving around a long-held family secret that threatens to emerge and take the life of an unsuspecting heiress."
