A Book Of Murder
Nineteen guests with secrets to hide.
One exclusive party on a private island.
An invitation to die for?
Ursula Smart and her mother, Pandora, wangle an invite to crime-fiction powerhouse Anthony Lovell’s latest book launch, a weekend-long bash at his private island home.
They’re ready for an evening of wining, dining and hobnobbing.
But trouble always seems to follow the Smart women.
Late that night, Ursula is woken up by blood-curdling screams.
Anthony is dead. Poisoned by the highlight of the evening feast, the fugu fillet. If prepared incorrectly, this rare Japanese delicacy is deadly.
Who killed him?
When the accused is put on trial, the Smart women are called as witnesses. But Ursula’s not convinced the police have the right person.
Is asking questions asking for trouble?
