The Bookman's Wake by John Dunning
I enjoyed Booked to Die so much that I immediately found the sequel. This one involves Cliff Janeway and 'a young woman fugitive from a burglar-and-weapons rap who may also have heisted a previously unknown 1969 edition of Edgar Allan Poe's The Raven.' I have read elsewhere that the Janeway series is a bit up and down, I hope this one lives up to my very high expectations!
The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ by Philip Pullman
I'm not sure what I'm going to think of this one. 'Provokingly bold' says the Independent. I don't usually like to be provoked, I prefer to be soothed! But the review I read was good and I loved Philip Pullman's Dark Materials trilogy.
