    A good old fashioned whodunit you'll love!

    "He was the literary world’s number one hatchet man, the guy to whom all the others looked to set the agenda." A literary festival.   A gaggle of authors, some of whom have pasts that are inextricably entwined.  When the first dead body appears, it could easily be chalked up to natural causes.  But when the second one is found, it starts to look "dreadfully suspicious". Francis Meadowes is a crime fiction writer who has the rather good - or was it bad - luck to be right at the scene of the first crime.   It's inevitable that he put his lead character, investigator George Braithwaite, to the task.   "What would George Braithwaite have noticed?" Add to that the unlikely cooperation that develops between Francis and Victoria Westcott - one of the other writers - as they pool resources to try and suss out the most likely among them to be a murderer.  It seems the solution is well in hand! An exceedingly good story and quite the page turner.  A few twists and turns along the way to discovery - and who doesn't like twists?   This is one that many fans of the traditional whodunit will enjoy. [I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author via NetGalley, and am leaving an honest review of the book.   The opinions expressed herein are entirely my own.]

    Good read!

    amateur-sleuth, England, murder, murder-investigation The middle aged critic was not well loved, especially by his women, but there was no evident reason for him to be murdered. If it was a murder. The second death was assuredly murder but, again, where was the motive? The mystery writer becomes his own chief character and potters around investigating in his own way. While it does get a bit draggy occasionally, it's still a good whodunit! I requested and received a free ebook copy from Black Thorn via NetGalley. Thank you!
