Perfect reads for a day on the lounger
Domina by LS Hilton (£12.99, Zaffre)
Hilton’s first thriller, Maestra, told the story of Judith Rashleigh’s mission to take down the men who wronged her (with plenty of sex along the way). This sequel delves deep into her past. A hot summer read.
The Power by naomi alderman (£8.99, penguin)
Who runs the world? Girls! Set in a world where women have the power to kill men with a single electric shock, this feminist sci-fi novel won the 2017 Baileys Women’s Prize For Fiction with good reason.
Mad by CHLOÉ esposito (£12.99, MICHAEL Joseph)
In the first of Esposito’s gripping trilogy, train-wreck Alvie visits her identical twin Beth in Sicily, planning to ‘steal’ her perfect life.
How To Stop Time by Matt Haig (£12.99, Canongate)
When Benedict Cumberbatch has already been cast in the upcoming film, you know it’s a winner. Tom’s been alive for centuries. It’s fine, as long as he doesn’t fall in love. Ideal in-flight fare.
