Lots of get fit and mindset books in this weeks charts, we can understand that! Start 2022 as you mean to go on!

Our featured book this week is Writing.ie founder Sam Blake’s REMEMBER MY NAME, a twisty psychological thriller that has entered the Original Fiction Top 10 with less than a week’s sales, and already hit the No 1 slot in Eason – it will hold you to the last page. Getting great reviews, the Sunday Independent says: ‘Remember My Name is a heady cocktail of wealth, adultery, murder, bribery and corporate espionage, with a chaser of lies, greed and jealousy. The pacey plot is augmented by crisp writing and memorable characters.’

‘This is an incredibly taut thrill with a tense undercurrent of threat rippling through every page. It’s compelling, modern thriller writing at its very best, combining sharply drawn characters with a dark, gripping plot. Utterly addictive!’ Victoria Dowd

Here’s the blurb:

If she’d turned off her phone, instead of listening in, perhaps no one would have died…

When Cressida Howard catches her entrepreneur husband playing away from home, she hires security expert Brioni O’Brien to get the evidence she needs for a speedy and financially rewarding divorce.

But what Brioni uncovers goes beyond simple infidelity. Because Laurence Howard is also in bed with some very dangerous people.

Bribery and blackmail are the least of his worries as someone comes after the women in his life – someone who is out to destroy Laurence and his empire, whatever the cost. And Cressida and her teenage daughter could soon be collateral damage, if she and Brioni don’t act fast.
