With Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl still in the top slot with great sales, see what else is on the move! We’re  delighted to see Michael Harding is holding fast at No.3 in the Top 20 – we have a great interview with him by actress and author Michele Forbes. Kevin Barry’s City of Bohane is in at No 10 in Mass Market Fiction and we are sure, set to rise.
