The Girl in the Spider's Web

By David Lagercrantz
She's back on 27 August!She is the girl with the dragon tattoo. Lisbeth Salander. An uncompromising misfit whose burning sense of injustice and talent for investigation will never respect boundaries of state or status.

He is a campaigning journalist. Mikael Blomkvist. A lone wolf whose integrity and championing of the truth bring him time and again to the brink of unemployment - and prosecution.

The call comes in late at night: a superhacker has gained access to critical, top secret U.S. intelligence.

Blomkvist knows only one person who could crack the best security systems in the world. This case has all the hallmarks of Salander. She is accused of acting without reason, taking risks just because she can, but though they have lost touch, Blomkvist knows Lisbeth better than that.

There must be something deeper at the heart of this - maybe even the scoop that Millennium magazine so desperately needs for its survival.

A tangled web of truth that someone is prepared to kill to protect . . .The most original heroine to emerge in crime fiction for many years - IndependentA magnificent creation: a feminist avenging angel - ObserverAn iconic literary heroine - Daily MailA Lara Croft for grown-ups - a female terminator - GuardianDavid Lagercrantz was born in 1962, and is an acclaimed author and journalist.

Henry and Banjo

By James Knight
The fascinating lives and turbulent times of Henry Lawson and Andrew 'Banjo' Paterson - the two men who wrote Australia's story.Today most of us know that Henry Lawson and Andrew 'Banjo' Paterson were famous writers. We know about Matilda, Clancy of the Overflow and the Man from Snowy River; The Drover's Wife, While the Billy Boils and Joe Wilson and his mates, but little else. Here, in a compelling and engaging work, James Knight brings Henry and Banjo's own stories to life. And there is much to tell.

Both were country born, just three years and three hundred kilometres apart, Henry on the goldfields of Grenfell and Banjo on a property near Orange, but their paths to literary immortality took very different routes - indeed at times their lives were ones of savage and all too tragic contrasts. Banjo, born into a life of comparative privilege, would rise from country boy to Sydney Grammar student, solicitor, journalist, war correspondent and revered man about town. Henry's formal education only began when his feminist mother finally won her battle for a local school but illness and subsequent deafness would make continuing his lessons difficult, seeing him find work as a labourer, a coach painter and a journalist, all the while wrestling with poverty, alcoholism and mental illness. Both men would become household names during their lifetimes. Both would have regrets.

HENRY AND BANJO details two incredibly fascinating lives and delves into the famous (and not so famous) writings of the two men who had the power to influence and change Australia.During the 1990s James Knight was an award-winning television reporter with the Ten Network, and these days he produces his own human interest and sports documentaries. He is also a bestselling author, having written biographies about Mark Waugh, Shane and Brett Lee, THE DRAGON'S JOURNEY, an incredible story about Vietnamese boat person Duy Long Nguyen, and, most recently, the bestselling biography of outback legend Milton Jones, THE MAN FROM COOLIBAH. James lives in Sydney.The fascinating lives and turbulent times of Henry Lawson and Andrew 'Banjo' Paterson - the two men who wrote Australia's story.Two iconic Australian names - everyone knows them but everyone knows little about their lives.This is accessible non-fiction, the perfect Christmas gift.James Knight is a bush poet, son of acclaimed Australian poet Anne Bell, and was born to write a book like this. James captures the emotional highs and lows this story needs.

The Secret Chord

By Geraldine Brooks
A unique and vivid novel that retells the story of King David's extraordinary rise to power and fall from grace, from the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of PEOPLE OF THE BOOK, YEAR OF WONDERS and MARCH, Geraldine Brooks.From the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of PEOPLE OF THE BOOK, YEAR OF WONDERS and MARCH comes a unique and vivid novel that retells the story of King David's extraordinary rise to power and fall from grace.

1000 BC. The Second Iron Age. The time of King David.

Anointed as the chosen one when just a young shepherd boy, David will rise to be king, grasping the throne and establishing his empire. But his journey is a tumultuous one and the consequences of his choices will resound for generations. In a life that arcs from obscurity to fame, he is by turns hero and traitor, glamorous young tyrant and beloved king, murderous despot and remorseful, diminished patriarch. His wives love and fear him, his sons will betray him. It falls to Natan, the courtier and prophet who both counsels and castigates David, to tell the truth about the path he must take.

With stunning originality, acclaimed author Geraldine Brooks offers us a compelling portrait of a morally complex hero from this strange age - part legend, part history. Full of drama and richly drawn detail, THE SECRET CHORD is a vivid story of faith, family, desire and power that brings David magnificently alive.

'a masterly reworking of what fiction and history have afforded Brooks' vibrant and questing imagination' - THE AGE on MARCH

The First Thing You See

By Gregoire Delacourt
THE FIRST THING YOU SEE ... isn't always what you get! The brilliant new novel from the author of The List of My Desires, a Waterstones Book Club pick and international bestseller.Imagine you are a young mechanic living in a small community in France. You own your own home, and lead a simple life. Then, one evening, you open your front door to find a distraught Hollywood starlet standing in front of you. This is what happens to Arthur Dreyfuss in the village of Long, population 687 inhabitants.

But although feigning an American accent, this woman is not all that she seems. For her name is Jeanine Foucamprez, and her story is very different from the glamorous life of a star. Arthur is not all he seems, either; a lover of poetry with a darker past than one might imagine, he has learnt to see beauty in the mundane.

THE FIRST THING YOU SEE is a warm, witty novel about two fragile souls learning to look beyond the surface - for the first thing you see isn't always what you get!This charmingly Gallic look at how we evaluate our life and the potentially corrosive effects of money is reminiscent of THE ELEGANCE OF THE HEDGEHOG - THE BOOKSELLERGregoire Delacourt's fictional The List of My Desires asks what happens when we achieve our heart's desire, after its protagonist Jocelyne wins the EuroMillions lottery. - HARPER'S BAZAARThe List of My Desires is a gorgeous little novel that has sold more than half a million copies in its native France.

The Scam

By Janet Evanovich, Lee Goldberg
The fourth book in the fast-paced, action-packed Fox and O'Hare series from Janet Evanovich, No. 1 bestselling author of the blockbuster Stephanie Plum novels, and Lee Goldberg, bestselling author of the Monk series, and co-author of THE HEIST, THE CHASE and THE JOB.He's on the run. She's an FBI agent. But putting Nick Fox in jail is the last thing on Kate O'Hare's mind...

Nicolas Fox is a charming con man and master thief. Kate O'Hare is the FBI agent on his trail. At least that's what everyone thinks. In reality, they're secretly working together to bring down super-criminals. Criminals like brutal casino magnate Evan Trace.

Evan Trace is running a money-laundering operation through his casino. Some of his best customers are mobsters, dictators, and global terrorists. Nick and Kate are going deep undercover as high-stakes gamblers, wagering millions of dollars - and their lives - in an attempt to topple Trace's empire.

The scam will take Fox and O'Hare from the Las Vegas strip, to the sun-soaked beaches of Hawaii, and into the dark back alleys of Macau. Their only backup - a self-absorbed actor, a Somali pirate, and an ex-soldier who believes a rocket launcher is the best way to solve every problem.

The Loney

By Andrew Michael Hurley
A beautiful, thrilling and unsettling debut novel.If it had another name, I never knew, but the locals called it the Loney - that strange nowhere between the Wyre and the Lune where Hanny and I went every Easter time with Mummer, Farther, Mr and Mrs Belderboss and Father Wilfred, the parish priest.

It was impossible to truly know the place. It changed with each influx and retreat, and the neap tides would reveal the skeletons of those who thought they could escape its insidious currents. No one ever went near the water. No one apart from us, that is.

I suppose I always knew that what happened there wouldn't stay hidden for ever, no matter how much I wanted it to. No matter how hard I tried to forget . . .The Loney is not just good, it's great. It's an amazing piece of fiction - Stephen KingModern classics in this genre are rare, and instant ones even rarer; The Loney, however, looks as though it may be both - Sunday TelegraphThe Loney is a stunning novel - about faith, the uncanny, strange rituals, and the oddity of human experience. Beautifully written, it's immensely entertaining, but also deep and wide. A moving evocation of desolate wilderness and a marvel of complex characterization, The Loney is one of my favorite reads of the past couple of years - Jeff VanderMeer, New York Times-bestselling author of the Southern Reach trilogyThe Loney transcends its generic roots by virtue of its depth and subtlety, imbuing horror with an intimacy, flavour and scent, meanwhile suggesting that horror's true face is meaningless, indifferent - and brilliantly blank - Grace McCleenA thrilling first novel - Publishers WeeklyA modern classic: superbly eerie, beautifully human and immensely readable - Adam RobertsI can't remember a more confident debut: a mingling of horror, domestic strife and metaphysical ambiguities set against an arrestingly vivid landscape. Brilliant - Adam ThorpeAndrew Michael Hurley has lived in Manchester and London, and is now based in Lancashire, where he teaches English Literature and Creative Writing. He has had two collections of short stories published by Lime Tree Press. The Loney is his first novel - it was first published in October 2014 by Tartarus Press, a tiny independent publisher based in Yorkshire, as a 300-copy limited-edition.A beautiful, thrilling and unsettling debut novel.A book that combines literary and genre. The prose is astounding with subtle horror tropes littered throughout. This book has critical and commercial potential.A thrilling and unsettling first novel that has already received a rave review from the Sunday Telegraph in the UK.Shortlisted for the inaugural James Herbert Award (for horror writing).The Loney was first published in October 2014 by Tartarus Press, a tiny independent based in Yorkshire, in a 300-copy limited-edition.Comparable to THE WICKER MAN, Sarah Waters' THE LITTLE STRANGER and Stephen King (due to the religious undertones). For fans of literary and genre horror as well as gothic horror.The setting is 1970s Lancashire - a very dark, unsettling atmosphere. Setting is reminiscent of the film THE WOMAN IN BLACK.

Close Your Eyes

By Michael Robotham
The chilling new psychological thriller from one of the most brilliant crime authors of todayI close my eyes and feel my heart begin racing

Someone is coming

They're going to find me

A mother and her teenage daughter are found brutally murdered in a remote farmhouse, one defiled by multiple stab wounds and the other left lying like Sleeping Beauty waiting for her Prince. Reluctantly, clinical psychologist Joe O'Loughlin is drawn into the investigation when a former student, calling himself the 'Mindhunter', trading on Joe's name, has jeopardised the police inquiry by leaking details to the media and stirring up public anger.

With no shortage of suspects and tempers beginning to fray, Joe discovers links between these murders to a series of brutal attacks where the men and women are choked unconscious and the letter 'A' is carved into their foreheads.

As the case becomes ever more complex, nothing is quite what it seems and soon Joe's fate, and that of those closest to him, become intertwined with a merciless, unpredictable killer . . .Never-lets-up suspense and beautiful writing - Stephen KingFew British writers can ramp up the tension as skilfully as Robotham.
