Great to see Kevin Barry’s City of Bohane on the climb after his IMPAC win – gathering pace too, Lee Child’s A Wanted Man, now out in paperback. Read Kevin’s thoughts about his win here, and our interview with Lee Child here.

Amy Huberman is in at No.7 with I Wished for You, with John Connolly’s paperback release of The Wrath of Angels hot on her heels.

The new Benjamin Black, Holy Orders, is in at No.20, but set too, we are sure, to rise.
