Book synopsis/description:

The Fear Index
Robert Harris
A fast-moving thriller set in the world of high finance. The brilliantly inventive Dr Alex Hoffmann has created an artificial intelligence that can predict movement in the stock markets with astonishing speed and subtlety. His partner, Hugo Quarry, seems happy to ride on the coat-tails of his genius... but strange things start happening to their business. Someone or something is breaching security, to destabilise and ruin Hoffman and get control of his technology. Can he search out and destroy this hidden enemy - or is it about to destroy him?

The House Of Silk
Anthony Horowitz
Sherlock Holmes is back, with all the nuance, pace and powers of deduction that have made him the most admired fictional detective for over a century, for millions of readers. Best-selling author Anthony Horowitz delivers a first-rate mystery that begins when an art dealer named Carstairs asks Holmes to track down a killer who wants revenge for his brother's death in an unsuccessful art theft. Holmes sends off his assistants, the street boys, to find 'a man in a flat cap' - but one of the boys disappears. The only clue that might lead to his rescue is the existence, somewhere in London, of the mysterious House of Silk...

Lethal
Sandra Brown
a high-octane tale of passion, deceit and betrayal. When Honor Gillette's four-year-old daughter comes across a wounded man in their back yard, Honor goes out to help. But he at once pulls a gun on mother and daughter, and Honor is terrified to realise that he is an accused murderer on the run. She can't flee: she must do all that he asks, to keep her daughter safe. But neither can he - and, because they are thrown together, the identity turns out to be more complicated than she had thought. How can she be sure who he really is? And why does he need her help?

The Haunting
Alan Titchmarsh
When history teacher Harry Flint begins searching for his roots in rural England, he follows a trail towards a verified ancestor, Merrilly Flint, that leads him to buy a dilapidated mill cottage. Living next door are a young widow and her daughter, and soon Harry and his neighbour form a unique bond. But there is another aspect of this country retreat that Harry hadn't bargained on - it's haunted! Does the reason lie in the tangled web of love and betrayal, intrigue and murder, that spread through this very place two hundred years ago? Perhaps the secret lies buried with Anne Flint, who in the past lived a very different life from Harry's. For this is a place where folk are not what they seem...
