Has Jack Reacher finally met his match? 61 Hours ended with Reacher trapped in a desperate situation from which escape seemed impossible. Even for him. Was that really the end of the road for the maverick loner?

Robert Goddard’s latest heart-stopping thriller. 13-years ago surgeon Edward Hammond performed a life-saving operation on a ruthless Serbian gangster for cash. In exchange for keeping his dirty little secret, the gangster’s family make Edward an offer he can’t refuse – one that leads to a terrifying pursuit across Europe.

Told through posts on a web journal called ‘badguysrock’, Blueeyedboy is the brilliant new novel from Joanne Harris: a dark and intricately plotted tale of a poisonously dysfunctional family, a blind child prodigy and a serial murderer who’s not all he seems.

It’s a cold wintry morning when art dealer Egon Wallins’ battered, naked body is found. Is his death a spurned lover’s revenge? Inspector Knutas soon discovers that beneath the patina of glamour, the high-society world of art collecting hides many secrets – some worth killing for.

The Blasphemer is a debut novel of rare depth, empathy and ambition that sweeps from the trenches of the First World War to the terrorist-besieged streets of London today: a novel that will speak to the head as well as the heart of any reader.

Was the Battle of Hastings a French victory? Non! William the Conqueror hated the French. Did the English really murder Joan of Arc? Non! The French did for wearing trousers. Historical facts bite the dust as Stephen Clarke looks at what has really been going on since 1066.

Spanning two centuries and set against an exotic backdrop, this is an all-consuming story in the vein of The Island and East of the Sun.
