Staff Reviews

Anthony Horowitz has ingeniously corraled so much between the covers of this novel that it's a difficult one to describe without destroying both the suspense and the fun you'll have once you crack it open. Yes, it's a homage to those Golden Age mysteries many of us love, but it's also one of the best contemporary novel-within-a-novel crime creations to come along in a long time. I was gobsmacked!

“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).”
