Just when we thought Dan Brown’s Inferno had settled itself in the top spot, Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl has crept back up into the number one position for the second time.

Consistently selling around 1500 units a week in Ireland this book is gripping readers worldwide. The Guardian says of Flynn, “She is a virtuoso of the not-quite-right detail, the skin-crawling sense that something is very wrong, that it is under your nose, yet you can’t make out what it is. Read Kevin Massey’s review of Gone Girl here. If you haven’t read it, perhaps now is the time!

If a dark thriller is not quite your thing, we’re delighted to see Sheila O’Flanagan’s The Things We Never Say – the story of a family’s world turned upside-down when old secrets come to light in at number twelve.

So this week, this is how the Top 20 chart looks…
