Two young girls on their gap year go missing in Thailand, their families frantic, desperate
and thrust into the international spotlight. A journalist who wants to be first with the story, but who keeps thinking of her own travelling son she hasn’t seen for two years. We raced through Fiona Barton’s The Suspect… it’s gripping and full of twists to keep you guessing. Penguin, R290. • One death might be an accident. Two look like murder. A detective investigating the shooting of a man by his pregnant wife recognises her as the same woman who, apparently accidentally, shot her father 16 years before. Now she must find out if the woman has twice been a victim, or if she’s about to, once again, get away with murder. Never Tell by Lisa Gardner is all twists, turns and a thrilling read. Penguin, R290.


In Out of the Dark, Gregg Hurwitz has the incredible Orphan X, Evan Smoak, working out how to kill the president of the USA. This is the fourth Orphan X novel… once again a fast, edge-of-your-seat, brilliant read. Penguin, R290. • Saints and Sinners is a rather macabre theme for a wedding… even more so when a young woman is found murdered. With no means of identification, and with all guests denying knowing her, psychologist Alex Delaware and his sidekick, LAPD Lieutenant Milo Sturgis, have to question hundreds of guests to find out who the victim is, and why she was murdered.

In Johathan Kellerman’s The Wedding Guest, the reception’s over, and the hunt for a killer is on! Century, R270. • The Taking of Annie Thorne by CJ Tudor (The Chalk Man) is not an enjoyable read. But it’s one you won’t be able to put down. It’s the dark tale of Joe Thorn, a troubled man who returns to his home town… a town where once, years ago, his sister went missing for two days and then came back. But although no one could put their finger on it, something was just wrong with little Annie. A twist which will give you shivers at the end! Penguin, R290.
