This week sees David Walliams returning to no. 1 in the Top 20, with The World’s Worst Parents selling over two thousand copies, the fourth offering in his ‘World’s Worst’ line, all of which have sold incredibly well despite mixed reviews and criticisms. He also manages to nab two other spaces in the Top 20, with a second edition of The World’s Worst Parents at no. 17 and Slime at no. 7.

This week’s featured book is the most recent release from author Karin Slaughter, whose newest book The Silent Wife is at no. 2 in Original Fiction and no. 9 in the Top 20. Slaughter is always popular, having, for example, filled City Hall at last year’s Midsummer Murder One! Whilst author events this year have been sadly curtailed, hopefully Slaughter’s sales won’t suffer similarly. Here’s the blurb:

A No. 1 Sunday Times crime thriller featuring Will Trent and Sara Linton

‘This is Slaughter doing what she does best’ Mail on Sunday

‘As sharp and absorbing as ever’ Guardian

He watches.

A woman runs alone in the woods. She convinces herself she has no reason to be afraid, but she’s wrong. A predator is stalking the women of Grant County. He lingers in the shadows, until the time is just right to snatch his victim.

He waits.

A decade later, the case has been closed. The killer is behind bars. But then another young woman is brutally attacked and left for dead, and the MO is identical.

He takes.

Although the original trail has gone cold – memories have faded, witnesses have disappeared – agent Will Trent and forensic pathologist Sara Linton must re-open the cold case. But the clock is ticking, and the killer is determined to find his perfect silent wife….

Praise for the Number One bestselling author:

‘Passion, intensity, and humanity’ Lee Child
‘I’d follow her anywhere’ Gillian Flynn
‘One of the boldest thriller writers working today’ Tess Gerritsen
‘Her characters, plot, and pacing are unrivalled’ Michael Connelly
‘A writer of extraordinary talents’ Kathy Reichs
‘Fiction doesn’t get any better than this’ Jeffery Deaver
‘A great writer at the peak of her powers’ Peter James
‘Karin Slaughter has – by far – the best name of all of us mystery novelists’ James Patterson
‘With heart and skill Karin Slaughter keeps you hooked from the first page until the last’ Camilla Lackberg
‘It’s big, dark, rich, satisfying, and bloody – like a perfectly cooked steak’ Stuart MacBride

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