BOOKS by an author who studied in Sheffield take two of the spots in a list of the top most-borrowed library titles.

Lee Childs’ titles 61 Hours and Worth Dying For both appear in the top 10 library books, new figures for lending show.

Lee attended Sheffield University to study law, married his wife Jane in the city, and has gone on to become one of the world’s most successful crime writers.

His 17 Jack Reacher books – about a one-time American military detective – have a celebrity following and are being made into a film starring Tom Cruise.

In a recent interview in The Star he said he was still inspired by the Sheffield work ethic he grew to love.

Other books in the top 10 were The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown, The Complaints by Ian Rankin and several titles by James Patterson.
