Karen - Thanks as ever for this collection! Lots to like this time I think. Fortunately for my TBR and book budget, I've read one or two of these :-)

Interesting that they've changed the cover of the Chris Brookmyre. The one I reviewed (pb) was a striking yellow with crosses design. The current cover is much weaker in my view, as well as being unlike his brand.

Interestingly the HB cover for the new book When The Devil Drives is the usual style.
