HARRY BINGHAM The Strange Death of Fiona Griffiths
In her third outing in this acclaimed series, DC Fiona Griffiths’ damaged psyche is given its sternest test. When DC Fiona Griffiths volunteers for an undercover training course, she turns out to be a natural. With her own sense of identity a fragile work in progress, becoming someone else is not a problem. Until she finds herself posing as a payroll clerk now working as a cleaner to try and bust a huge and ingenious fraud. Not only is she in serious physical danger – if the gang discover she’s a policewoman, she’s dead meat – but she also risks destroying her own personality in the process. It’s imperative that she remains in character until she gets the evidence she needs, but can the real Fiona Griffiths survive in the meantime? As well as being an author Harry Bingham runs The Writers’ Workshop, an editorial consultancy for firsttime writers, and organises the York Festival of Writing. He lives near Oxford.

MATTHEW DUNN Slingshot
Written by a real-life James Bond, Slingshot is the brand new espionage thriller in the acclaimed Spycatcher series. In this action-packed follow-up to The Spycatcher and Sentinel, master spy Will Cochrane is tasked with retrieving a top-secret document that contains information about a pact made between Russian and US generals almost twenty years ago. An agreement which, if broken, was designed to unleash the world’s deadliest assassin. Will learns that the Russians have tasked their own ‘spycatcher’ – an agent just as ruthless and relentless as Will – to retrieve the document. And Will knows that he now faces two very clever and deadly adversaries, who will stop at nothing to achieve their aims. Matthew Dunn spent five years in the British Secret Intelligence Service, working with highly specialised units from the SAS and SBS, MI5, GCHQ and the CIA. Dunn was the recipient of a very rare personal commendation from the Foreign Secretary.
