Salt River

The special, elegant and intellectual crime choice!


"An elegantly crafted murder mystery that mixes rural melancholia with minimalist lyricism. Salt River is a highly unusual and atmospherically unique mystery novel" The Boston Globe


"Two years have passed since Turner's amour, Val Bjorn, was shot as they sat together on the porch of his cabin (...). Then the Sheriff's long-lost son comes ploughing down Main Street into City Hall in what appears to be a stolen car. And waiting at Turner's cabin is his good friend, Eldon Brown, Val's banjo on the back of his motorcycle so that it looks as though he has two heads. 'They think I killed someone,' he says. Turner asks:'Did you?' And Eldon responds: 'I don't know.' Haunted by his own ghosts, Turner nonetheless goes in search of a truth he's not sure he can live with."

The Silkworm

An enthralling and ingenious whodunit by bestselling author Robert Galbraith:

"When novelist Owen Quine goes missing, his wife calls in private detective Cormoran Strike. At first she just thinks he has gone off by himself for a few days and she wants Strike to find him and bring him home.

But as Strike investigates, it becomes clear that there is more to Quine's disappearance. The novelist has just completed a manuscript featuring poisonous pen-portraits of almost everyone he knows. If the novel were published it would ruin lives - so there are a lot of people who might want to silence him.

And when Quine is found brutally murdered in bizarre circumstances, it becomes a race against time to understand the motivation of a killer unlike any Strike has encountered before..."

The Casual Vacancy

"In the idyllic small town of Pagford, a councillor dies and leaves a 'casual vacancy' - an empty seat on the Parish Council.

In the election for his successor that follows, it is clear that behind the pretty surface this is a town at war. Rich at war with poor, wives at war with husbands, teachers at war with pupils... Pagford is not what it first seems.

From the smallest of elections in a sleepy British town, J.K Rowling conjures an epic, emotional and compulsively readable tale that has had millions of readers hooked.
