Mark Billingham is one of the UK’s most acclaimed and popular crime writers. A former actor, television writer and stand-up comedian, his series of novels featuring D.I. Tom Thorne has twice won him the Crime Novel of The Year. His latest novel, The Last Dance, is the first outing for Declan Miller.  He’s a detective, a dancer, he has no respect whatsoever for authority ­- and he’s the best hope Blackpool has for keeping criminals off the streets. In his first case, a double murder in a seaside hotel sees grieving Miller return to work to solve what appears to be a case of mistaken identity. Just why were two completely unconnected men taken out?

Christopher Brookmyre has written a series of thrillers featuring journalist Jack Parlabane, several standalone crime capers, science fiction novels and the Ambrose Parry historical series with his wife Dr. Marisa Haetzman.

In his latest novel, The Cliff House Jen has rented a luxury getaway on its own private island for her hen do. The helicopter won’t be back for seventy-two hours. Seven women with seven secrets… but only one worth killing for. It’s a combustible cocktail, one that takes little time to ignite, and in the midst of the drunken chaos, one of them disappears. Then a message tells them that unless someone confesses her terrible secret to the others, their missing friend will be killed.
