Chances are if you’re a fan of crime books, you’ve heard of this one. Written by the Pointless host Richard Osman, I had reservations about this because I usually find celeb-written books are just a bit…meh. Thinking would it have done well if they weren’t well known before it got published, or would it even have got published without their name on the front cover? Most of the time — probably not.

However, this was the fastest selling adult crime debut since records began, so I figured there must be some truth in that impressive achievement.
