"As a schoolteacher friend told me this week, no matter how much you might try to promote stand-alone books, it’s the series novels that really inspire devotion, whether Anthony Horowitz’s Alex Rider, Joe Craig’s genetically modified assassin Jimmy Coates or Michael Grant’s Gone, the latest craze, set in a world in which the adults have mysteriously vanished – surely the ultimate teenage fantasy."

Lorna Bradbury also recommends recent solo thrillers.
