12. Sunfall, by Jim Al-Khalili

You probably know who Jim Al-Khalili (‘Professor Jim’ in our house) is. Professor of Physics, presenter of tv series popularising science.  Now he has written a novel.

Set in the not too distant future, the world is facing a calamitous doomsday that threatens the existence of life on this planet. Only quantum physics can save the day.

Add in to the mix a nutjob terrorist outfit who want the end of the world to happen, and the James Bond-type efforts of the brilliant physicists who have worked out how to save the planet, and you have a science fiction thriller.

Good fun. 8 out of 10.
