A bestselling crime novel. A labyrinth of clues. A killer with a lot to hide.
Featuring his famous literary detective Atticus Pund and Susan Ryeland, hero of the worldwide bestseller Magpie Murders, a brilliantly intricate and original thriller
Retired publisher Susan Ryeland is running a small hotel on a Greek island with her long-term boyfriend. It should be everything she's always wanted - but is it?
She's exhausted with the responsibilities of making everything work on an island where nothing ever does. And she's beginning to miss her literary life in London.
And then an English couple come to visit, and the story they tell about a murder that took place on the same day and in the same hotel in which their daughter, Cecily, was married is such a strange one that Susan is fascinated by it.
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 what's happened.
The clues to the murder and to Cecily's disappearance must lie within the pages of this novel.
But what Susan cannot know is that very soon her own life will be in mortal danger...
