Sherlock Holmes - Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Want something to make your brain work? Sherlock's brilliance is on show in this collection of stories.
My favourite is the "Red-Headed League of Gentlemen", Mrs Earnshaw.
Find Sherlock with Crime upstairs.
The Day of the Jackal - Frederick Forsyth
France, 1963. The security forces find out about an attempt to assassinate the French President. This is a classic spy thriller that became an huge box office hit for Edward Fox. A very special book and highly recommended.
The Bourne Identity - Robert Ludlum
A classic tale of pursuit, brilliantly filmed with Matt Damon. Bourne is dragged out of the sea by a fishing boat. He has no idea who he is or how he got there. One of the best suspense series every written. Look for it in the Thriller genre upstairs.
Killing Floor - Lee Child
Jack Reacher - here is where the story begins. This series is an international bestseller, with a huge following.
The action is violent and graphic - not recommended for junior readers.
Death Cloud - Andrew Lane
It's time to meet Young Sherlock Holmes in Death Cloud.
Sherlock is on school holiday with his Uncle in England.
His brother hires him an unusual tutor and together they find a body on the Holmes' estate. A body with a strange yellow cloud around it.
Close Call - Stella Rimington
Liz Carlyle and her compatriots in UK spy agency MI6, are racing to investigate arms deals in the Yemen. There is evidence the arms are coming from the UK and liable to cause unrest in the Middle East.
Author Stella Rimington was the first woman to head MI6, (think 'M' in James Bond). Her bestselling stories have an authentic touch.
American Assassin - Vince Flynn
The first of the hugely popular Mitch Rapp stories. Mitch is a gifted athlete until the infamous 9/11 tragedy in the US. He goes into training to be part of a new group of clandestine operatives who will work outside the normal chain of command. Men who do not exist.
