    ... James Kidd The Whisperers by John Connolly Hodder and Stoughton, HK$104 After nine novels, John Connolly's Charlie Parker mysteries get better and better.

    Posted Sep 19th 2010, 12:00am by James Kidd

    ... James Kidd Bolt Action by Charlie Charters Hodder and Stoughton, HK$91 Bolt Action is a thriller that cliches seemed to be made for: high-octane, high concept, explosive action.

    ... James Kidd Under the Dome by Stephen King Hodder, HK$104 The first thing you notice about Under the Dome is its size: 877 pages, excluding a note from the author.

There, a strange message transmitted on mobile phones transforms people into zombies. Here, ...

    ... Charmaine Chan Wild Life by Simon King Hodder, HK$117 Australians all have an opinion about the Lindy Chamberlain case and whether her nine-week-old daughter, Azaria, could have been taken by a dingo.
