With Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl still selling over 1500 copies a week in Ireland, there’s no move in the top slot, but there’s change further down the Top 20, with the appearance of new releases including Kate McCabe’s Magnolia Park, set on the Costa del Sol, in at No.4, and Benjamin Black’s Vengeance, the 5th Quirke mystery, in at No.11.
