THIS MONTH we’ve been read­ing THE FEAR IN­DEX by Robert Har­ris (main­stream techno thriller, com­pe­tent but un­sur­pris­ing); WHEN THE DARK MAN CALLS by Stu­art M Kaminsky (clever psy­chthriller, writ­ten three decades ago but bang on the cur­rent zeit­geist); THE DARK FOR­EST by Cixin Liu (Chi­nese sci-fi, book two of three; veers be­tween ut­terly pro­saic and star­tlingly in­ven­tive), COLD KILL and NOTH­ING STAYS BURIED, by PJ Tracy (a pair of gen­tle trad de­tec­tive tales), and TOKYO SODOM by Stephen Bar­ber (des­per­ately dull at­tempt at erotic fic­tion – en­tirely for re­search pur­poses!).

MEAN­WHILE AT THE MOVIES, seek out BAT­TLE FOR SEVASTAPOL, the stun­ning story of a fe­male Soviet sniper; look out for TER­MI­NAL, a stylish and strangely quirky thriller; make the most of the sum­mer block­busters be­cause MI: FALL­OUT and THE MEG were ac­tu­ally pretty good and… have you found GRIMM yet? It’s a TV se­ries. Five sea­sons of yummy boxset bad­ness, fea­tur­ing were­wolves and de­tec­tives. Think CSI meets X-Files. Sort of.
