READ IT, SEE IT, Sisterland Gone Girl (£16.99, Doubleday) The Other Typist (£7.99, Phoenix) 6 JULY (£12.99, Fig Tree) OUT NOW 6 JUNE Identical twin sisters, Kate and Violet, always knew they were different. And while Violet embraced her abilities to prophesise future events, Kate did her best to hide them. Now, years later, their disparate paths have led them back to their hometown of St. Louis, and Kate – a devoted wife and mother – is forced to reconcile her relationship with her sister, when Violet goes on television to share a premonition that a devastating earthquake will soon hit the St. Louis area. Described as a female noir, Gone Girl deals with marital breakdown, murder and manipulation. Nick Dunne is forced to question his wife Amy’s disappearance on the morning of their fifth wedding anniversary. The police immediately suspect Nick, and Amy’s friends reveal that she’s afraid of him and keeps secrets. The strange searches on his computer, and persistent calls on his mobile phone, leave a trail of wanting questions… So what really did happen to his beautiful wife? This thrilling tale from Suzanne Rindell tells the story of orphaned young woman Rose Baker in 1920s New York – at the height of Prohibition. Earning her living as a police typist, she transcribes confessions of murderers and gangsters. But everything changes when she meets the dazzling Odalie, the new typist. The two girls’ friendship blossoms, as they frequent speakeasies by night and work together in the day – but what happens when Rose’s fascination with Odalie becomes obsession? What Have I Done? Instructions For A Heatwave The Signature Of All Things OUT NOW Headmaster’s wife, Kathryn Brooker, spends her days living in domestic bliss – baking scones for her son’s cricket matches, and getting dinner ready for her husband on his return. To any outsider looking in, the family would seem the perfect picture of home life – they would even envy Kathryn’s idyllic life. But to her, she’s trapped in a nightmare of fear and cold violence, and she’s about to do something very drastic to change it irrevocably... 280 | JUNE 2013 (£18.99, Tinder Press) OUT NOW It’s July 1976 – the month of the legendary heatwave. An Irish family are living in London, where it hasn’t rained for months. Robert tells his wife Gretta he’s off to buy a newspaper, but he doesn’t come back. The quest for Robert brings their children – two estranged sisters and a brother on the brink of divorce – back home to hypothesise about their father’s disappearance, not once suspecting their mother might have an un-shareable explanation all along... LOOK OUT FOR! (£18.99, Bloomsbury) 1 OCTOBER Elizabeth Gilbert’s last book, Eat, Pray, Love was met with critical acclaim and sold more than 10 million copies worldwide and was made into a movie starring Julia Roberts. So this, her new novel, is eagerly awaited. It is set in 1800 and its heroine is the doughty Alma Whittaker, a botanical explorer whose passion both for her scientific subject and for the spiritual artist she comes to love drives her across the globe from Tahiti to Amsterdam.
