Also revealed this week was the cover for Matt Johnson's No Ordinary Day, a deeply moving account of the truth behind the murder of WPC Yvonne Fletcher.
On 17 April 1984, as police and anti-Gaddafi demonstrators gathered in the street outside the Libyan People’s Bureau in London, they had no way of knowing they were about to become part of one of the greatest tragedies in British policing history. At 10.17a.m. automatic gunfire rained down on them. WPC Yvonne Fletcher was hit in the back and later died from her injuries. Twelve demonstrators were wounded. The gunmen were Libyans, both concealed behind a first-floor window of the Bureau.
As Yvonne Fletcher lay dying, her colleague and close friend PC John Murray cradled her in his arms. Before she lost consciousness, he promised her he would not rest until those responsible for her murder had been brought to justice.
Published in June this year, Lee Child calls it "an important book, especially now - both an intensely personal story, and a sober analysis of a political scandal."
Joining her will be fellow crime heavyweights, Peter James, DHH client Graham Bartlett, Simon Toyne and William Shaw.
