I Am Pilgrim – Terry Hayes
A rollercoaster ride through the darkest reaches of the US intelligence world, the mountains of Afghanistan, and the dusty back alleys of the Middle East, set against a sinister terrorist plot that aims to destroy the United States for good.
The Marches – Rory Stewart
Stewart reflects on empire, identity and landscape in this memorable account of his frustrating journey with his father along Hadrian’s Wall.
Munich – Robert Harris
Robert Harris is on sure ground in this brilliantly constructed spy novel set amid the politicking of Chamberlain’s last-ditch negotiations with Hitler.
The Silence of the Girls – Pat Barker
This brilliant retelling of Homer’s epic poem focuses on the cost of war to women through the story of Briseis, Achilles’ concubine. Barker’s novel is an invitation to tell those forgotten stories, and to listen for voices silenced by history and power.
A Single Thread – Tracy Chevalier
Tracy Chevalier excels at writing about the ordinary human characters who find themselves accidentally at the centre of history, painting an intricate portrait of the hopes and fears of ‘surplus women’ left alone after the First World War.
Magpie Lane – Lucy Atkins
When the eight-year-old daughter of an Oxford College Master vanishes in the middle of the night, police turn to the Scottish nanny, Dee, for answers. Tense, perceptive and meticulously plotted, Magpie Lane is an intelligent exploration of privilege, belonging, grief and parental responsibility.
