Top 10 must-reads for September

In our pick of this month's books, we're taken to a posh, English village haunted by mysterious death, and investigate a curious incident in an American town involving the Rapture. We also review Anya Von Bremzen's touching food memoir about growing up in poverty-stricken Moscow, and are introduced to the Twilight-esque concept of "Coldtowns" in a new young adult novel from Holly Black. If you're looking for intrigue, mystery and a bit of science fiction, the books of September have it all.
