The best books out this month

The Christmas lights have been switched on, the Yuletide knitwear pulled from the back of the wardrobe and there’s a faint hum of jingle bells wherever we go. Indeed it ‘tis the season to be jolly, but whether Christmas is your favourite time of the year, or you’re more likely to say ‘Bah Humbug’, the festive season can give us the perfect excuse to slow down and take-it-easy with a good book.

So, whether you’re looking to give someone the gift of a thriller this Christmas, or want an up-all-night page turner in your own stocking, you won’t go far wrong with these gripping reads.
