Robert Ludlum, John Mortimer, Douglas Preston, Nicholas Sparks - The Ambler Warning, Quite Honestly, Tyrannosaur Canyon, True Believer
The Ambler Warning: The Ambler Warning, like many of Robert Ludlum's thrillers, gets much of its sense from our knowledge that intelligence agencies cannot be trusted to play fair even by their own. Hal Ambler is held in a facility for insane agents and is himself being drugged to a point where he cannot trust his own crumbling sanity. Even when he escapes, he is unable to be sure of his own past and identity--his very face is not as he remembers, let alone his fishing cabin and the friends of his youth. Something has been made from the wreckage of his mind, and he is not sure whether every step he takes may not be a part of someone else's plan. By contrast, Caston is the sort of intelligence agent who despises the Hal Amblers of this world--he is an accountant who follows the money of assassination and terror round the world while sitting in front of a monitor. Yet he too starts to get a sense that he is being used. Part of the originality and strength of Ludlum's new thriller is that he always knows when to pull surprises like the eventual alliance of Caston and Ambler--two dangerously flawed and partial men in search of knowledge and also of wholeness. The glimpses of the great world of political innovation, and the theories that inform them, also give this rather more thoughtfulness than we saw in, say, Ludlum's recent Bourne books. ---Roz Kaveney

Quite Honestly: Lucinda Purefoy is a do-gooder: a nice, middle-class girl, fresh out of university (and work experience at the Guardian), who wants to repay her 'debt to society'. Crime-fighting organization SCRAP recruit Lucy to volunteer as a 'mentor' for ex-cons. But her first client, career house-burglar Terry Keegan (just out of Wormwood Scrubs) has ideas of his own. And it's not long before Lucy's distracted from duty by his seductive lessons in the criminal life. Quite Honestly is a clever and highly entertaining comic novel, bursting with big ideas and John Mortimer's reflections on crime, rehabilitation and how wrong some people go trying to do right in life.

Tyrannosaur Canyon: A moon rock missing for thirty years... Five buckets of blood-soaked sand found in a New Mexico canyon... A scientist with ambition enough to kill... A monk who will redeem the world... A dark agency with a deadly mission... The greatest scientific discovery of all time... What fire bolt from the galactic dark shattered the Earth eons ago, and now hides in that remote cleft in the southwest U.S. known as . . . Tyrannosaur Canyon? The stunning new masterwork from the acclaimed best-selling author, recently hailed by Publishers Weekly as "better than Crichton."

True Believer: From the #1 New York Times bestselling author comes an unforgettable story that explores the deppest mysteries of all - those of the heart. As a science journalist with a regular column in Scientific American, Jeremy Marsh specializes in debunking the supernatural. A born skeptic, he travels to the small town of Boone Creek, North Carolina, determined to find the real cause behind the ghostly apparitions that appear in the town cemetery. What he doesn't plan on however, is meeting and falling hopelessly in love with Lexie Darnell, granddaughter of the twon psychic. Now, if the young lovers are to have any kind of future at all, Jeremy must make a difficult choice: return to the life he knows, or do something he's never done before - take a giant leap of faith.
