Are you a fan of Richard Osman’s The Thursday Murder Club series, Anthony Horowitz’s Hawthorne and Horowitz series, or even The Maid by Nita Prose? Well then this is your next fun and clever Mystery/Thriller read! The Golden Age of mystery novels with a modern-day twist! (Notice we didn’t finish that sentence with “of the knife.”)
Knives Out and Clue meet Agatha Christie and The Thursday Murder Club in this “utterly original” (Jane Harper), “not to be missed” (Karin Slaughter), fiendishly clever blend of classic and modern murder mystery.
“A witty twist on classic whodunits… Stevenson not only 'plays fair,' he plays the mystery game very, very well.” -- Maureen Corrigan, Washington Post
Everyone in my family has killed someone. Some of us, the high achievers, have killed more than once. I’m not trying to be dramatic, but it is the truth. Some of us are good, others are bad, and some just unfortunate.
I’m Ernest Cunningham. Call me Ern or Ernie. I wish I’d killed whoever decided our family reunion should be at a ski resort, but it’s a little more complicated than that.
