Bergdorf Blondes
by Plum Sykes
Plum Sykes's beguiling debut welcomes readers to the glamorous world of Park Avenue Princesses, the girls who careen through Manhattan in search of the perfect Fake Bake (tan acquired from Portofino Tanning Salon), a ride on a PJ (private jet) with the ATM (rich boyfriend), and the ever-elusive fiancé.

With invitations to high-profile baby showers and benefits, more Marc Jacobs clothes than is decent, and a department store heiress for a best friend, our heroine known only as Moi is living at the peak of New York society. But what is Moi to do when her engagement falls apart? Can she ever find happiness in a city filled with the distractions of Front Row Girls, dermatologists, premieres, and eyebrow waxes? Is it possible to find love in a town where her friends think that the secret to happiness is getting invited to the Van Cleef and Arpels über-private sample sale? And how is she going to deal with the endless phone calls from her mother in England demanding that she get married to the Earl next door?

With enormous wit and an insider's eye, Sykes captures the nuances of the rich and spoiled in a heartwarming social satire, featuring a loveable "champagne bubble of a girl" who's just looking for love (and maybe the perfect pair of Chloé jeans).
The Finkler Question

The Finkler Question
by Howard Jacobson
He should have seen it coming. His life had been one mishap after another. So he should have been prepared for this one...

Julian Treslove, a professionally unspectacular former BBC radio producer, and Sam Finkler, a popular Jewish philosopher, writer and television personality, are old school friends. Despite a prickly relationship and very different lives, they've never quite lost touch with each other or with their former teacher, Libor Sevcik, a Czech always more concerned with the wider world than with exam results.

Now, both Libor and Finkler are recently widowed, and with Treslove, his chequered and unsuccessful record with women rendering him an honorary third widower, they dine at Libor's grand, central London apartment. It's a sweetly painful evening of reminiscence in which all three remove themselves to a time before they had loved and lost; a time before they had fathered children, before the devastation of separations, before they had prized anything greatly enough to fear the loss of it. Better, perhaps, to go through life without knowing happiness at all because that way you have less to mourn. Treslove finds he has tears enough for the unbearable sadness of both his friends losses.And it's that very evening, at exactly 11:30 pm, as Treslove, walking home, hesitates a moment outside the window of the oldest violin dealer in the country, that he is attacked. And after this, his whole sense of who and what he is will slowly and ineluctably change.

The Finkler Question is a scorching story of friendship and loss, exclusion and belonging, and of the wisdom and humanity of maturity. Funny, furious, unflinching, this extraordinary novel shows one of our finest writers at his brilliant best.

The Bikini Murders
by Farrukh Dhondy
In a Kathmandu casino, retired Inspector Pradhan nabs the notorious serial-killer who has eluded him for twenty-five years. But did Pradhan just get lucky or is there a larger plan at work? Why would Thhat risk coming to Nepal though he is still wanted there for an American girl's murder? What is the message he now desperately wants to get across to the American government?

Pradhan tries to piece the puzzle together from what Thhat tells him ? and leaves out. About the beginning of his career in crime as a teenager in France; the search for his Indian father; being drawn into the world of diamond smuggling; his 'chemistry' with his accomplice, the ravishing Ravina, together with whom he drugged, robbed and killed tourists in Thailand and India, before being caught and sent to Tihar.

Did Thhat mastermind his own long imprisonment? Is he behind an international double-cross, involving the Taliban, his prison connections with Pakistani terrorists, and the CIA? Has Thhat finally been made to pay for his crimes ? or is he just playing the biggest con of his life?
