Crime & mystery

Veep meets Agatha Christie in this wickedly funny murder mystery for fans of Richard Osman and Nita Prose

'A hugely entertaining character who is wry, gossipy and completely compelling. Full of twists and turns worthy of a classic mystery novel' ALEX MICHAELIDES, author of The Silent Patient

'Gripping . . . with a wonderful detective readers will be dying to meet again' SOPHIE HANNAH

'A thoroughly modern, Agatha Christie-esque mystery . . . A delightfully escapist, page-turner' KIMBERLEY MCCREIGHT

Meet our narrator: witty, nosy, professional weaver of lies - aka ghostwriter for the rich and famous - and now, lander of The Dream Assignment (that is, a politician's tell-all memoir).

Enter Dorothy Gibson: recently toppled Presidential Candidate, aka that woman, the most talked-about person in the country right now (for the wrong reasons).

Add: an invitation to the middle of nowhere, one well-heeled neighbour dying under Suspicious Circumstances, a secret investigation and an unreasonably beautiful man.

This is a story even our ghostwriter wasn't expecting. And for once, it's all hers.

'A delight from start to finish. If you like Agatha Christie you'll love this' ALEX MICHAELIDES

'A highly entertaining mystery with ingenuity and flair aplenty' SOPHIE HANNAH

'As clever as it is hopeful. Original, captivating, and assured' TAYLOR JENKINS REID (on Kemper Donovan's The Decent Proposal)
