The Sunday Times Thriller of the Month ''Stunning . . . one of the most compelling reads of the year'' - Daily Express Expertly researched and visionary in scale, international number one bestseller Ken Follett''s Never is more than a thriller. It imagines a scenario we all hope never comes true, one which will keep you transfixed until the final page . . . A stolen US army drone. A shrinking oasis in the Sahara Desert. A secret stash of deadly chemicals. Each is a threat to global stability. Each can be overcome with only the highest levels of diplomacy. But when those in charge disagree and refuse to back down, an international chain reaction kicks off with potentially catastrophic consequences: a world edging closer to war . . . Now three people must work with the utmost skill to stop that from happening: A spy working undercover with jihadis. A brilliant Chinese spymaster. A US president beleaguered by a populist rival for the next election. The only question is - in a game of brinksmanship, can the inevitable ever be stopped? ''Bold in scale and meticulously researched'' - Sunday Times ''Probably his best yet'' - Stephen King Urgent and fiercely compelling'' - The Washington Post More than 175 million copies sold worldwide. Published in over 80 territories and 37 languages. The international no.1 bestselling phenomenon returns.
''Lehane is the master of complex human characters thrust into suspenseful, page-turning situations'' Gillian Flynn ''One of the great diabolical thriller kings'' New York Times The acclaimed New York Times bestselling writer returns with a masterpiece to rival Mystic River - an all-consuming tale of revenge, family love, festering hate, and insidious power, set against one of the most tumultuous episodes in Boston''s history.
In the summer of 1974 a heatwave blankets Boston and Mary Pat Fennessey is trying to stay one step ahead of the bill collectors. Mary Pat has lived her entire life in the housing projects of ''Southie'', the Irish American enclave that stubbornly adheres to old tradition and stands proudly apart.
One night Mary Pat''s teenage daughter Jules stays out late and doesn''t come home. That same evening, a young Black man is found dead, struck by a subway train under mysterious circumstances.
The two events seem unconnected. But Mary Pat, propelled by a desperate search for her missing daughter, begins turning over stones best left untouched - asking questions that bother Marty Butler, chieftain of the Irish mob, and the men who work for him, men who don''t take kindly to any threat to their business.
Set against the hot, tumultuous months when the city''s desegregation of its public schools exploded in violence, Small Mercies is a superb thriller, a brutal depiction of criminality and power, and an unflinching portrait of the dark heart of American racism. It is a mesmerising and wrenching work that only Dennis Lehane could write.

December 2016 - A severed hand is found washed up on a beach next to the Queen's estate at Sandringham.
Elizabeth has become quite accustomed to solving even the most complex of murders. And though she quickly identifies the 70-year-old victim, Edward St Cyr, from his signet ring, the search for his killer is not so straightforward.
St Cyr led an unconventional, often controversial life, making many enemies along the way in the quiet, rural world of North Norfolk, where everyone knows each other's business.
But when a second man is found dead, and a prominent local woman is nearly killed in a hit-and-run, the mystery takes an even darker turn.
With the Christmas break coming to an end, the Queen and her trusted assistant Rozie must race to discover how the pieces of the puzzle fit together. Or the next victim may be found even closer to home.
An incredible new thriller you won''t want to put down!

Now Amber is back, and as the two of them tentatively start to renew their once unlikely relationship, will their secrets and motivations finally destroy everyone around them?

THE DEVIL IS IN THE DETAIL...
Everyone knows the sad story of the Alperton Angels: the cult who brainwashed a teenage girl and convinced her that her baby was the anti-Christ. Believing they had a divine mission to kill the infant, they were only stopped when the girl came to her senses and called the police. The Angels committed suicide rather than stand trial, while mother and baby disappeared into the care system.
Nearly two decades later, true-crime author Amanda Bailey is writing a book on the Angels. The Alperton baby has turned eighteen and can finally be interviewed; if Amanda can find them, it will be the true-crime scoop of the year. But rival author Oliver Menzies is just as smart, better connected, and is also on the baby''s trail. As Amanda and Oliver are forced to collaborate, they realise that what everyone thinks they know about the Angels is wrong. The truth is something much darker and stranger than they''d ever imagined. And the story of the Alperton Angels is far from over...
