Inferno, Dan Brown
Dan ‘Da Vinci Code’ Brown’s symbologist Robert Langdon heads to Italy to decode Dante’s epic Inferno. Solving riddles and finding secret passageways while being pursued by a Moriarty-esque adversary ensue.


12th Of Never, James Patterson and Maxine Paetro
If you haven’t already experienced Patterson and Paetro’s Women’s Murder Club series, summer 2013 is the time. One week after welcoming her new baby, detective Lindsay Boxer is called into work to solve a gruesome homicide that was predicted by a local English professor.


Let’s Explore Diabetes With Owls, David Sedaris
The ‘rock star of writers’ collection of humorous travel essays explores subjects such as the contradiction-in-terms that is French dentistry and Beijing’s squat toilets, that will have any seasoned ‘gap yah’ traveller come over all misty-eyed.


Montaro Cain, Sidney Poitier
Poitier makes his literary debut about a mysterious coin the book’s eponymous protagonist believes will save his ailing global corporation. However, others are after it too and there’s a reason it’s pulling everyone into its orbit.


Dinner With The Smileys, Sarah Smiley
US columnist Sarah Smiley’s mission to fill her military husband’s chair at dinner each week while he served a year-long tour of duty sees senators, athletes, teachers and comedians all come to dine. A true story and warming family portrait.


Wedding Night, Sophie Kinsella
If summer isn’t the time for guilty pleasure chick-lit then when is? This time the old ‘if-two-friends-aren’t-married-by-the-time-they-hit-30-they’ll-wed’ pact gets the easy-read treatment. And with characters called Fliss and Lorcan, how can you resist?


A Delicate Truth, John Le Carre
The master of the spy genre serves up an arms-dealing killer, a shady CIA operative and an ambitious Foreign Office Minister who all get – forgive us – Le Carre-d away.


The Last Train To Zona Verde, Paul Theroux
Celebrated travel writer Theroux returns to his beloved Africa on a 2,500 mile journey to explore the west. The chapter, ‘What Am I Doing Here?’ casts light on an Africa far removed from the tourist trail.


Pirate Alley, Stephen Coonts
A luxury cruise turns into a floating nightmare when Somali pirates take everyone hostage in this fast-moving thriller. Enter Coonts favourites, Grafton and Carmellini to save the day.


Americanah, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
The Half Of A Yellow Sun author tackles love and race in Nigeria. Her latest offering sees teenagers-in-love, Ifemelu and Obinze reunite after years apart; but can young love ever be replicated?

Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a persistent one. So get a few laughs and do the best you can. Don't have an ideal to work for. That's like riding towards the mirage of a lake.
