Tom Bower’s biography of media mogul Simon Cowell is standing firm in the hardback non-fiction charts at number two this week following huge press coverage. Sweet Revenge: The Intimate Life of Simon Cowell offers an unprecedented and detailed profile of the controversial star, and includes revelations from hundreds of hours of interviews with Cowell's friends and associates and with Cowell himself.

S.J. Parris’ latest Giordano Bruno mystery Sacrilege is in seventh place in the Fiction Hardback charts in its first week. Sacrilege is the third Giordano Bruno tale from S. J Parris, which sees her sleuth taking on a sinister conspiracy in Canterbury.

Jeffrey Archer's The Sins of the Father is holding firm at number six in the Fiction Hardback charts. The Sins of the Father follows Harry Clifton's attempts to clear his name of murder. Jeffrey has topped the bestseller lists with his novels for more than 30 years, selling over 250 million copies in 97 countries.

In the paperback fiction charts, Catherine Alliott’s A Rural Affair storms in to the charts at number six, while Lisa Jewell’s The Making of Us enters at the number seven spot, with Red Mist by Patricia Cornwell at number eight. A Rural Affair follows the fortunes of the newly widowed Poppy Shilling, as she attempts to restart her life and find real love in the country.

In Lisa Jewell’s The Making of Us, a dying man called Daniel tells his friend Maggie the story of his life as sperm donor – but who can predict what will happen when his children meet each other?

Red Mist finds Dr Kay Scarpetta determined to uncover who killed her former deputy chief, Jack Fielding, but her search is interrupted by a string of grisly murders that she must solve.
