Eleven of her previous titles have been Number One best sellers in the UK. My Sister’s Keeper was a blockbuster film starring Cameron Diaz, and three of her other novels went straight into TV films. She has also written five issues of Wonder Woman for DC Comics.

Don’t miss esteemed  broadcaster Jonathan Dimbleby’s groundbreaking BBC-2 documentary exploring the  true significance of the World War II British victory at the Battle of El Alamein.

Called Churchill’s Desert War: The Road to El Alamein, it will be shown at 9.00pm  tomorrow night (Monday November 5) and gives fascinating account of this pivotal operation that in 1942 marked a crucial point in the battle against the Nazis.

Dimbleby, who has also just published a book on the subject, Destiny in the Desert: The Story Behind El Alamein, examines the human cost of this battle fought in appallingly inhospitable conditions, the military strategy behind it and how it finally brought the calendar of war to a position that  in Churchill’s famous words was, ‘the end of the beginning’.
