Expect mystery with these great books

Hamdy’s Black 13 could well be the most frightening book you’ll read all year. Why? Because it‘s about the way hate, generated by radical extremists, is the world’s rising – and most terrifying – destroyer. It’s the story of ex-MI6 agent, Scott Pearce, who’s lured into the deadly fight to protect Britain from this new menace, and is a glued-to-the-pages read. Pan Macmillan, R299

When James Mercer’s family is financially ruined by the institutions they trusted, they were shattered, and he sets out to recoup what they’re owed. It’s not theft … it’s payback. Andy McNab’s Whatever It Takes is the gripping tale of how James’s solo crusade falls foul of the very people he seeks to rob – the people who own most of the world’s wealth. Packed with relentless action that (scarily) shows the world as it really is. Bantam Press, R297

Robin Cook’s medical thrillers are always unputdownable … and Genesis doesn’t disappoint. Chief Medical Examiner Laurie Montgomery has her work cut out for her when the body of a 10-week pregnant social worker shows up on the autopsy table. No-one knows who the father is, or if he’s involved in her death. And Laurie turns to using DNA tracking to try to catch the killer. Macmillan, R299

We haven’t had a Clarkson book for a while. Oh joy. Jeremy’s back, with Really? We discover the Ford Mustang 2.3 EcoBoost is not so much wild horse as mild pony, how the Alpina B5 is grown-up thrills in a light-speed La-Z-Boy, and what, exactly, is the point of a driverless car? Michael Joseph, R320
