A Dead Hand; Paul Theroux was one I got rather inexpensively.

  5. A very nice mix. Paul Theroux is sometimes good, sometimes a bit disarming. Sophie Hannah - thats a bargain!

  11. I almost bought a copy of The Red Thread a few months ago, but didn't end up getting it. After that it just kind of quietly slipped off my radar. I will have to rectify that!! I hope that you enjoy all your new books, and I must say the cover for A Dead Hand looks really cool!
