An original short story taken from the anthology Motives for Murder, by members of The Detection Club
From acclaimed novelist Ann Cleeves, author of the Vera and Shetland series, comes a tale about a wife who will do anything to meet her favourite writer.
The life of Ann Cleeves' ex-pat wife protagonist is one of boredom punctuated by stultifying dinner parties and making sure that her home is tidy and her husband is happy. When her favourite writer, Peter Lovesey, is due to appear at the Emirates Literature Festival, she is beyond thrilled. What will she do then when her husband changes their plans at the last minute?
