Where do you go after Bridget Jones? Creator Helen Fielding's response has been to go somewhere completely different. Olivia Joules and the Overactive Imagination, Fielding's fourth novel, is a spy-thriller whose sassy heroin e, the eponymous Joules, doesn't fret about weight gain, laddering her tigh ts or Chardonnay and fags in the manner of her predecessor. Oh no--Olivia, once plain old Rachel Pixley from Worksop, is a self-made, go-getting journ alist for the Sunday Times and Elan magazine with, or so her colleagues at the ST maintain, "an overactive imagination" and an impeccable gift for lan guages. Both of these come in handy when Olivia is despatched to Miami to c over a face-cream launch, meets the enigmatic Pierre Ferramo, an internatio nal playboy, and finds herself on the scene of an al-Qaeda bomb attack.
