Moonflower murders

£8.99

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. However, 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.

Retired publisher Susan Ryeland is running a small hotel on a Greek island with her long-term boyfriend. But life isn’t as idyllic as it should be: exhausted by the responsibility of making everything work on an island where nothing ever does, Susan is beginning to miss her literary life in London – even though her publishing career once entangled her in a lethal literary murder plot.

So when an English couple come to visit with tales of a murder that took place in a hotel the same day their daughter Cecily was married there, Susan can’t help but find herself fascinated.

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 out what has happened.

The clues to the murder and to Cecily’s disappearance must lie within the pages of this novel.

But to save Cecily, Susan must place her own life in mortal danger…
