If you're after ideas for what to read this summer, look no further than round-up of the best summer reads for 2019

A winner will be drawn at random at midday on Monday 15 July. Usual terms and conditions apply. Note that because of the size and weight of the prize box, we are only able to deliver to mainland UK addresses.

Dr Ruth Galloway from the books by Elly Griffiths. I have a picture in my mind of what she looks like but probably very different to one pictured by the author.
