Books about King David

A Listmania! list by J. Randall Short (Inzai City, Japan)
(REAL NAME)   
The list author says: "This is a list of books, beginning with the most recent, about ancient Israel's King David. I recently wrote one of the books on the list, and I thought it would be helpful to compile a list of mostly academic (but also a few popular) books on the topic. (Note that listing does not necessarily mean recommendation.) Of course, if you're interested in King David, you should also look into biblical commentaries on the books of Samuel and Chronicles, in particular."
