Staff Reviews


I love this book. It's a whodunit following in the steps of Agatha Christie. It is two books in one. It starts in present day as an editor prepares to read a manuscript from their top author. I was so involved in the story that I forgot that it was a manuscript until I got to the end of it, found out who murdered one victim, and it ends abruptly. Then it flashes back to present time where you find out several chapters are missing from the manuscript. The editor goes in search of the missing chapters only to find a present day murder which she tries to solve. Lots of twists and turns in this book while you try to figure out whodunit. Love it! It will keep you guessing until the very end. — Ray, Denver

“Who better than the talented Anthony Horowitz to create this marvelous mystery within a mystery. Yes, we're treated to two mysteries for the price of one: One set in a peaceful village in England during the 1950s with the one and only Detective Atticus Pund taking the case, and the other set in contemporary times with a book editor who becomes an amateur sleuth. Horowitz pays tribute to the golden age of British crime with references to mysteries created by the likes of Dorothy Sayers and Agatha Christie. How many hidden gems can you come up with? A perfect book to read in a cushy chair with a cup of tea (hot or iced).”
