Best new books to brighten up dreary winter
January's drizzle, sobriety and hibernation call for a pile of new books to get lost in. There's a taunt crime thriller that had French readers hooked, the titalating tell-all truth behind Trump's White House, the self-care bible that Kate Moss adores and hotly-anticipated new novels from esteemed Booker winners.
'The baby is dead. It only took a few seconds'. From the first two lines of Lullaby, Leila Slimani had us horrified and utterly hooked. This taut thriller takes us into the lives of a well-heeled Parisian family who make the fatal mistake of trusting their seemingly wonderful nanny. It's already an award-winning bestseller in France and will appeal to everyone who was gripped by the likes of Broadchurch or The Missing.
