Mount! Jilly Cooper Bantam Press. Out Thursday Back in 1985, bestselling bonkbuster Riders made a huge impact with the caddish, womanising hero horseman Rupert Campbell-Black cantering his way into many hearts. This return to centre stage finds him pushing 60, happily married and working as a trainer, in the appropriately named county of Rutshire, a rural idyll full of beautiful people and adorable animals. Cooper's world is an exaggerated one - pun packed and drawn in broad strokes, and there are moments where some questionable humour strikes a jarring note. But this tale of ancient rivalries, sabotage - and of course, sex - will have Cooper's army of fans galloping to the finish line. DEIRDRE O'BRIEN The Ice Beneath Her Camilla Grebe Zaffre. Out Thursday The grisly discovery of a decapitated woman in the home of a missing millionaire sparks this captivating story, set in Sweden. As baffled police try to solve the mystery, the three unreliable narrators deftly ensure readers' certainties stay on very thin ice.

The History of Us Jonathan Harvey Pan. Out Thursday In 1980s Liverpool, three misfit teenagers form a bond before setting off into the big wide world. But after a tragedy strikes, longburied secrets bubble to the surface. Irresistibly energetic, with a sly acerbic wit, this bitter-sweet story will keep you giggling right up to the moving conclusion.
