As we continue in various degrees of lockdown across the world, it’s good news for some as audiobooks and ebooks have seen a rise; it’s particularly handy for authors available through libraries as lending grows.

Hopefully things will return to normal, but until they do, we’re back with another week of charts without sales figures. There are few new entries, but we’ve got a new novel from Naoise Dolan, Exciting Times at no. 4 in Original Fiction; Mrs Hinch returns with her Little Book Of Lists at no. 2 in Hardback Non-Fiction, and our featured book for this week is in at no. 9 in Original Fiction, Fifty-Fifty by Steve Cavanagh, who had a lot of success with the previous book, Thirteen.

Here’s the blurb:

Two sisters on trial for murder. They accuse each other.
Who do YOU believe?

‘911 what’s your emergency?’

‘My dad’s dead. My sister Sofia killed him. She’s still in the house. Please send help.’

‘My dad’s dead. My sister Alexandra killed him. She’s still in the house. Please send help.’

One of them is a liar and a killer.

But which one?

********

Your favourite authors LOVE Fifty-Fifty, the follow-up to the bestselling novel Thirteen:

‘A terrific writer. He has talent to burn.’ Don Winslow

‘Unpredictable, daring and completely compelling. Top notch writing.’ Alex North

‘Very clever, darkly funny, moving, fast-paced.’ Jane Casey

‘Steve Cavanagh writes the best hooks in the business’ Mick Herron

‘Absolutely brilliant. Addictive, clever, pacy. Eddie Flynn is one of my heroes.’ Jo Spain

‘Intelligent, sophisticated and tense.’ Mari Hannah

And now this week’s charts, with the Top 20 followed by the Top 10 in each category.
