The Roundup: No overlaps this week! The Gone Girl-esque domestic thrillers continue to do well in all the charts though, especially on Amazon. Waterstones’s customers are obviously BBC fans as well, as The Night Manager soars to no. 4 in their charts after the airing of the new series starring Tom Hiddlestone and Hugh Laurie.
