Our second cover reveal is Dan Malakin’s THE WRECKAGE OF US, a thriller bound to keep you reading until the early hours.

Wayne Barnes’ memoir, THROWING THE BOOK, is publishing on the 14th of November and Wayne recently spoke all about it with the BBC. As the referee of the recent Rugby World Cup final, it goes without saying that he is a man with much to talk about! Find out more here.
