DR LOUISE NEWSON WAS THE TOP NEW ENTRY, IN 13TH POSITION


over 5,000 units in June 2019 for the paperback release of her first Troy book, The Silence of the Girls. That novel kick-started a Barker-enaissance, shiſting £1.5m in all print editions, no doubt helped mightily by its Women’s Prize for Fiction shortlisting in 2019 and perhaps its excellent jackets, designed by Sarah Young. The Women of Troy has sold nearly as many hardback units in one week as Barker’s last pre-


Silence novel, Noonday, shiſted in total since its publication in 2015. Also in the top 50 last week


were Stephen Fry’s Troy and Madeline Miller’s 2012 Orange Prize for Fiction winner The Song of Achilles. Troy, and Fry’s other two ancient Greek retellings, Mythos and Heroes, have combined to shiſt £6.2m through BookScan. Miller’s title, meanwhile, is currently riding the “TikTok made me read it” wave.


Cosy crime continues to pay for Richard Osman, with The Thursday Murder Club claiming a lucky 13th overall number one, eight of which have been earned by the mass-market paperback. With a 14,260-copy haul, the paperback cracked Continues overleaf 


fter three weeks of being within touching distance of the top spot, which included two second and one fourth place finish,


Gillian McAllister’s broke through to claim her first Bookstat number one. Her psychological thriller That Night was aided by its Richard & Judy Summer Book Club selection, and a reduction in its price point to 99p for August. The book has also shifted just under 35,000 print units through BookScan since being published in early July. Bookstat’s highest new entry is the latest in


the Miles High Club from indie author turned star of Amazon’s Montlake romance imprint, T L Swan. The Casanova, about a woman who may or may not be communicating anonymously on a dating app with her irritating yet unbelievably handsome boss, follows Swan’s winning formula, which she says is writing about “strong alphas to fall in love with and witty women you want to be”. A heavy publication week brings four new
