A very cleverly plotted serial killer tale with a difference and introducing Dexter Morgan who will star in many a tale to come. What makes these so different is that Dexter, who is an analyst for the Miami Police, has killed 36 people, not in the course of duty but because he is compelled to kill bad guys. He is a serial killer and we are drawn into his sad clandestine world, rooting for him not to be discovered. It reminds me of that wonderful book, Jules Hardy’s Mister Candid which you must also seek out. The Dexter novels have now been turned into a major TV series.Comparison: Thomas Harris, Michael Connelly, Jules Hardy.Similar this month: None, but try Karin Fossum and Lynda La Plante.
What a terrific author and this, her fourth, gives you an interesting insight into her protagonist’s relationship. A good place to start if you haven’t read her, then go back to the beginning, Blindsighted. She is definitely one of my favourites in the fast-paced, gritty American crime tales. Totally addictive.Comparison: Patricia Cornwell, Kathy Reichs, Tess Gerritsen.Similar this month: Vena Cork, Ian Rankin.
I liked the developing relationship between an American doctor and the Irish policeman here in this strong, drug-related thriller with lots of pace. Itâ€™s got something a little bit different.Comparison: Lee Child, John Grisham, Michael Palmer.Similar this month: Gordon Kent, Andy McNab.
Those seeking an absorbing thriller after The Da Vinci Code will not go far wrong with this. It hasn’t got quite the same controversial premise but there is plenty of history to absorb here, all laced around underwater exploration and deciphering ancient hieroglyphics. It is fascinating and gripping. Comparison: Clive Cussler, Dan Brown, Valerio Massimo Manfredi. Similar this month: None, but try Dan Fesperman or Paul Carson
A Myron Bolitar novel which preceded his psychological thrillers and were published by a different publisher (Hodder) a few years back. This one was 1999 but unless you are an obsessive fan you probably missed it. It is classic Harlan Coben - powerful, moving and ultimately shocking. It tells of what a friend can sacrifice and how hard it is to save those you love - particularly from themselves.... Comparison: Michael Connelly, Robert Crais, Lee Child.Similar this month: David Baldacci, Nelson DeMille.
Winner of the Richard & Judy Best Read of the Year at the British Book Awards 2006. I was privileged to visit Kate in her Carcassonne retreat and be shown the numerous locations she used throughout this novel; the exact tower, steps, house, street etc that feature in the action in this exciting tale. It’s a time-slip adventure, a grail-tale, a history lesson, and a thumping good read that effortlessly links medieval France with the present through two strong heroines. I loved it. In addition to our Lovereading expert opinion for Labyrinth a small number of Lovereading members were lucky enough to be invited to review this title - 'The spellbinding “Labyrinth" by Kate Mosse is one of the books that got me hooked on historical fiction...' - Claudia Stach. Scroll down to read more reviews. A brand new two-part adaptation of Kate Mosse’s Labyrinth starring John Hurt and Jessica Brown Findlay was shown over Easter weekend 2013.

Bella shot to fame when Richard and Judy chose her Hunting Unicorns as one of their Book Club titles last year. This has the same lovely writing but is very different being about a girl who manages a cinema, has an actor boyfriend whose suddenly doing well and suffering from lack of confidence. Itâ€™s a fun read for film buffs as well as romantics.Comparison: Lisa Jewell, Susan Fletcher, Isla Dewar.Similar this month: Sarah Jackman, Jill Mansell.
The popular broadcaster’s tale of a happy loving childhood, with the knowledge that he was adopted not concerning him at all. Then, as an adult, he goes in search of his natural mother and dark secrets unfold. This is powerful, emotional, startling and highly readable; a lovely book.
Stars John Corey of Plum Island and Lion’s Game, one of Mr DeMille’s best creations. It’s based on a real event, the TWA crash over Long Island that killed 230 people and culminates with 9/11 and it’s good. Mr Demille is a major American thriller writer who hasn’t quite made the same mark over here but he is well worth a read. Comparison: Robert Crais, Dennis Lehane, Daniel Silva. Similar this month: David Baldacci, Harlan Coben.
If I tell you this is the prequel to the five books of the Brentford Trilogy you will get an idea of the wacky nature of this man. Fans need no introduction, newcomers prepare to be enthralled. He really does have an amazing imagination; you’ve got to read it to believe it. He’s great.Comparison: Douglas Adams, Terry Pratchett, Andy Secombe.Similar this month: None.
The life of the peasant girl Haddasah who became Esta, Queen of Persia and obviously based on the biblical story. Itâ€™s evocative of harem life and the helplessness felt by captives. An interesting period nicely portrayed.Comparison: Sharon Penman, Jude Morgan, Anita Diamant.Similar this month: None but try Michelle Paver and Tash Aw.
Michael Moore says â€œIâ€™m proud to give voice to the troops who have written to meâ€ for this is what he does here as American GIs, their families and supporters tell the real story of Iraq, sans the propaganda, and Michael just links their letters. Itâ€™s powerful, searing stuff.
