Ski Spy School by Stuart Gibbs
Ben Ripley isn’t exactly spy material. But even though he’s a bit of a nerd, the CIA recruit him to go to spy school. And that’s where his adventures begin. The Spy School series is for children aged 8-11 and our reviewer gives this story 5-Stars.

Killer Charm by Linda Fairstein
This essay on what makes a psychopath is straightforward and easy to follow, and it gives a rather different perspective to some of the killers and villains we find in many crime fiction novels.
18 October 2020
Rogue Male by Geoffrey Household
This is a riveting and exciting story that deserves its reputation as one of the best classic thrillers. 5-Stars from our reviewer.

Whirligig by Andrew James Greig
A clever and intricate police procedural. This debut novel about a series of macabre killings in the Highlands of Scotland was longlisted for this year’s CWA John Creasey New Blood Award.

The Order by Daniel Silva
The Gabriel Allon series by Daniel Silva usually yields page-turning international espionage thrillers. But this just slightly misses the mark. Having said that, don’t be put off reading the earlier books in the series because they are terrific.
