Published by Century, 2020
A labyrinth of clues. A mystery novel hiding a deadly secret. A killer with a fiendish plot: a brilliantly intricate and original thriller from the bestselling author of Magpie Murders______________’A beautiful puzzle: fiendishly clever and hugely entertaining.A masterpiece.’ Lucy Foley, author of The Hunting Party. Retired publisher Susan Ryeland is running a small hotel on a Greek island with her long-term boyfriend. But life isn’t as idyllic as it should be: exhausted by the responsibility of making everything work on an island where nothing ever does, Susan is beginning to miss her literary life in London – even though her publishing career once entangled her in a lethal literary murder plot. So when an English couple come to visit with tales of a murder that took place in a hotel the same day their daughter Cecily was married there, Susan can’t help but find herself fascinated.
And when they tell her that Cecily has gone missing a few short hours after reading Atticus Pund Takes The Case, a crime novel Susan edited some years previously, Susan knows she must return to London to find out what has happened. The clues to the murder and to Cecily’s disappearance must lie within the pages of this novel. But to save Cecily, Susan must place her own life in mortal danger
“It’s so much fun, I’m absolutely loving it” Ryan Tubridy, RTE. Radio One “Showcases Horowitz’s full battalion of strengths: the whiplash plotting, the leather-smooth prose, the bold energy and, above all, the bright spark of joy that ignites the best fiction. Sophisticated, literate novels aren’t supposed to be so much fun.’ AJ Finn, author of The Woman in the Window’ A mind-bending mystery to tie readers in knots’. BBC ‘Funny, profound and at times frightening, this is Horowitz at his very best. And the perfect jumping-on point for newcomers.’
