Holiday Hardbacks

The summer holidays are here and it’s time to delve into a beach read, or four…

by Irvine Welsh
In the third instalment of Irvine Welsh’s bestselling CRIME series, former detective Ray Lennox is determined to start a new life. He has left Edinburgh Police behind for a fresh career and a fresh relationship in Brighton.

Then he meets Mathew Cardingworth. Rich, smooth-talking and immaculately dressed, he is seemingly a pillar of the local community – yet he soon draws Lennox back to a past that  he’s desperate to forget.

Try: A picture book about friendship by Rob Burrow and Kevin Sinfield
A stimulating children’s book inspired by the real-life
affection between rugby legends, fundraising heroes and best friends Rob Burrow and Kevin Sinfield.

This big-hearted read translates the much-publicised story of these sporting pals into a format and tone that’s perfect for younger readers,  promoting the ideas of teamwork, health, resilience and love, all via the medium  of rugby, arguably the toughest yet most gentlemanly sport of  them all.

Certainly not the last incredible take-out from Burrow’s fight against Motor Neurone Disease, this one is arguably one of the most important, in its connection with a nation of young readers.
