Mark Lawson on Good News, Bad News, a welcome debut from the creator of Spooks, David Wolstencroft. Wolstencroft impressively twists all this into the quadruple-helix shape required from thriller narratives these days. His plotting is like being dropped in the desert; we never know with any certainty where we are.

However, protectionists in the novelists' union always scrutinise moonlighters from TV and the movies for an over-reliance on dialogue.

Hodder & Stoughton, £10; 356pp. Given the cult following for the BBC’s stylish spy drama Spooks, it’s little wonder that Hodder is pushing the publicity boat out for the first novel by its creator, David Wolstencroft: Good News, Bad News.
