The Bee Sting

Paul Murray

£18.99 £18.04

Fiction Winner. ‘The writing is both accomplished and highly readable.' The Bee Sting is a gripping saga of one highly dysfunctional family that asks if a single moment of bad luck – a patch of ice on the road, a bee caught beneath a bridal veil, can change the direction of a life?

Strong Female Character: Nero Book Awards Winner

Fern Brady

£10.99 £10.44

Non-Fiction Winner. ‘A savagely funny, beautifully written and fearlessly honest book that is as inspiring as it is hilarious.’

Close to Home

Michael Magee

£14.99 £14.24

Debut Fiction Winner. ‘What sets this apart is the voice, which perfectly evokes a character and a community straining so hard against the systemic clamps of poverty, disillusionment, and ennui that the effort crackles off the page.’

The Swifts: The New York Times Bestselling Mystery Adventure

Beth Lincoln and CLAIRE POWELL

£12.99 £12.34

Children's Winner. Fast-paced, fiercely charismatic and brimming with challenge and heart, The Swifts is everything a book for young people should be.’
