Posted in the Magazine ( · Irish Bestseller Lists ).

Well, we predicted last week that The Power of Small by Aisling Curtin and Trish Leonard would be around for a while, and here it is climbing up the charts already, from last week’s position at no. 10 in the Paperback Non-Fiction to no. 1 in the same chart. We also have a couple of new appearances, with the first releases of 2019 starting to appear (although only in the category charts rather than the Top 20), including The Lost Child from Patricia Gibney, The Rob Lipsett Game Plan by, er, Rob Lipsett, and An Edited Life by Anna Newton.

This week’s featured book is also one of these new releases – so new, in fact, that the official release date isn’t until next week but it’s still at no. 5 in the Original Fiction chart! Twisted by Irish lawyer-turned-author Steve Cavanagh has a high standard to live up to – Cavanagh’s most recent novel (Thirteen) did extremely well in the charts and stayed around for a long time, but all the signs are that Twisted will live up to its predecessor.

Here’s the blurb:

FROM THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THIRTEEN: the serial killer isn’t on trial. He’s on the jury.

‘This guy is the real deal. Trust me.’ Lee Child

******************

BEFORE YOU READ THIS BOOK
I WANT YOU TO KNOW THREE THINGS:

1. The police are looking to charge me with murder.
2. No one knows who I am. Or how I did it.
3. If you think you’ve found me. I’m coming for you next.

After you’ve read this book, you’ll know: the truth is far more twisted…

******************

‘A fantastic read. You won’t be able to put this down.’Luca Veste

‘A fantastic standalone thriller. Punchy, ridiculously gripping, fast-paced, clever. Beautifully-plotted and incredibly fun to read. He’s done it again. SUPERB.’ Will Dean

‘In the words of the great Jim Ross, “Good Gawd Almighty”. What a heck of a year or so for Steve Cavanagh: his fourth novel THIRTEEN sold like hotcakes and was on many ‘best of the year’ lists, his third tale THE LIAR won the CWA Gold Dagger, and now this. Best yet? Devoured it in a day.’ Craig Sisterson

‘A corkscrewing rollercoaster of thrills, switchbacks, loop-de-loops and screaming good fun. Add it to your wish list!’ Mark Edwards

And here are the charts, with the Top 20 first followed by the Top 10 in each category.
