    ... James Kidd The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly (read by Nick Rawlinson) Hodder and Stoughton (audiobook) John Connolly's Charlie Parker mysteries are as good as crime fiction gets right now.

    ... James Kidd Picture Perfect by Jodi Picoult Hodder, HK$104 Here's how to bake a successful literary re-issue.

    ... James Kidd Crusade by Robyn Young Hodder & Stoughton, HK$115 Robyn Young's first novel Brethren was 2006's best-selling debut. An epic yarn in every sense of the phrase, it was vast, enjoyable and old-fashioned fun. It was a historical thriller like authors used to write- and which Bernard Cornwell and Ken Follett still do. Set on a vividly realised 13th-century globe, ...

    ... James Kidd The Dirty Secrets Club by Meg Gardiner Hodder & Stoughton, HK$105 If the blurb about The Dirty Secrets Club is anything to go by, Meg Gardiner has friends in high places. Stephen King, Tess Gerritsen and Jeffrey Deaver have all lined up to pour some sugar on Gardiner's new book. I'm not about to argue with any of them. You never know what trouble you ...

    Posted Mar 06th 2005, 12:00am by Diana McPartlin

    ... Diana McPartlin Write Away by Elizabeth George Hodder $119 What she lacks in literary style, Elizabeth George makes up for in the ability to tell a good story. Here, she takes a break from crime fiction to explain how she approaches her craft. As with most writing guides, she begins with the importance of creating strong characters. Less obviously, she shows that landscape ...
