I was very delighted to read this in this week’s Bookseller:

“Last Thursday (7th June) was one of the biggest days in the 2012 publishing calendar as publishers released some of their biggest titles of the year with Father’s Day in mind. According to Nielsen BookScan data, 39 different books released on 7th June sold more than 1,000 copies at UK bookshops, of which 15 were hardback publications. Chief of them all was Peter James’ Not Dead Yet (Macmillan) which sold 8,905 copies in its opening week on bookshop shelves, scoring James his third Original Fiction number one in a row.”
