Crime Novels

Everything in this list is a book that we’ve read, loved and would recommend to you if you popped into the bookshop.

The Windsor Knot

The Windsor Knot

Hardback £12.99

Described as ‘Miss Marple meets The Crown’, The Windsor Knot is the first in the new five-part series Her Majesty The Queen Investigates by S J Bennett. The Queen has been living a double life ever since she was a teenager: by day she upholds her royal duties, while secretly solving cases as an amateur detective, and The Windsor Knot finds her with a case of murder to investigate. A gently entertaining and cheering read.

Daylight

Daylight

Hardback £20

Daylight is the gripping follow up to Long Road to Mercy and A Minute to Midnight. In Baldacci’s latest thriller, FBI Agent Atlee Pine’s search for her twin sister, Mercy, coincides with military investigator John Puller’s high-stakes case, leading them both into a global conspiracy from which neither of them will escape unscathed.

The Thursday Murder Club

The Thursday Murder Club

Hardback £14.99

Hazel devoured The Thursday Murder Club in a few sittings and gave it to Tracey who also couldn’t put it down. It is the first in a series by TV presenter Richard Osman in which four unlikely friends meet up once a week in an otherwise peaceful retirement village to investigate unsolved murders. It’s sharp, it’s funny – it’s just a terrific read.

Pine

Pine

Paperback £8.99

Ella raced through this thriller set in the Highlands. Lauren and her father Niall live alone in a small village surrounded by a pine forest. When a woman stumbles out onto the road one Halloween night, Niall drives her back to their house in his pickup. In the morning, she’s gone. . . This is an eerie, atmospheric book full of mythology and secrets.

Three Hours

Three Hours

Hardback £14.99

In rural Somerset in the middle of a blizzard, the unthinkable happens: a school is under siege. Children and teachers barricade themselves into classrooms, the library, the theatre. The headmaster lies wounded in the library, unable to help his trapped students and staff.

Outside, a police psychiatrist must identify the gunmen, while parents gather desperate for news. In three intense hours, all must find the courage to stand up to evil and save the people they love.

Hazel absolutely loved this brand new literary thriller, and would highly recommend for a stirring, nail-biting read!

What our customers say

A great little bookshop. The staff are excellent with a wide range of knowledge. Every corner of its floors are crammed full of reading treasures. Often they order in my special requests with no trouble but great speed.

This is the best bookshop I know. A small shop, packed with stock, it is run by helpful and knowledgeable staff, who obviously enjoy reading, and are willing and able to advise customers. Orders arrive within 24 hours. Book selection for children is particularly good.
