Crime novels storm the ebook chart

I've received a tip-off from Dan Waddell, author of The Blood Detective that his book is top of the ebook chart (across all genres) beating the mighty Stephenie Meyer Twilight series. Three of the top five places are held by crime novels.

Looking at Waterstone's chart, the top 5 are as follows:
1. Dan Waddell - The Blood Detective
2. Mark Pearson - Hard Evidence
3. Stephenie Meyer - Twilight
4. Stephenie Meyer - New Moon
5. James Becker - The First Apostle
Steph at Wheredunnit has just bought a Sony e-reader and makes a plea for authors to try and get their books into e-format.

Non-crime, but jubilation in the Bookseller this week that someone has knocked Meyer off the regular charts, also - not Jade Goody (whose two bios are at 3 and 4) but Victoria Hislop with "The Return", the imaginitively titled sequel to "The Island". SM is still at no 2, 6, 7 and 8!
