Visit the Hatchards store in St Pancras and discover the new July titles.
Hatchards recommend the following books.
The Underground Railroad - Colson Whitehead £7.99
The Underground Railroad chronicles a young slave's desperate bid for freedom from a cotton plantation. Hunted by the relentless slave catcher, Ridgeway, and encountering strange, new worlds at each step of her journey, Cora’s harrowing quest becomes an odyssey through time and space. A search for true freedom.
(Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for fiction 2017)
The Adversary - Emmanuel Carrere £8.99
To his family and his tight-knit group of friends, Jean Claude Romand seemed to be a pillar of his community: a distinguished doctor at the WHO in Geneva, a loving husband and a devoted father. Until one day, seemingly out of the blue, he murdered his wife, their two young children, his parents, and their dog, shocking their community to its core and revealing a shocking and unbelievable eighteen year web of lies.
Journalist and author Emmanuel Carrère became fascinated by the case, following it closely to try to understand how a seemingly normal human being could be capable of such an existence, and the heinous act that followed. The result is this compelling, unnerving thriller which is all the more gripping as a work of non-fiction.
The Dry - Jane Harper £7.99
Amid the worst drought to ravage Australia in a century, it hasn't rained in small country town Kiewarra for two years. Tensions in the community become unbearable when three members of the Hadler family are brutally murdered. Everyone thinks Luke Hadler, who committed suicide after slaughtering his wife and six-year-old son, is guilty.
Policeman Aaron Falk returns to the town of his youth for the funeral of his childhood best friend, and is unwillingly drawn into the investigation. As questions mount and suspicion spreads through the town, Falk is forced to confront the community that rejected him twenty years earlier.
Dragon Rider: The Griffin's Feather - Cornelia Funke £6.99
The last winged horses are on the brink of extinction. Three foals lie curled in their eggs in a sanctuary for threatened creatures, where a young dragon rider lives with his silver dragon. The foals are ill, and the pair volunteer to seek the only cure: a Griffin's feather. But Griffins, with the heads of eagles and the bodies of lions, are a dragon's fiercest enemy, and live far across the world in the sweltering jungle. A dangerous and exciting adventure begins...
