Why read it?

2 authors picked The Postscript Murders as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

This is Book 2 in a series but can easily be read alone.

It introduces several older characters, including the page one murder victim, each of whom is so well-sketched they could be your friend or neighbor. The story has an excellent murder, a twist, wonderful characters, and humor.

The best is that the unlikely sleuths are a mixture of old and young, male and female, many backgrounds, yet all best of friends and all very funny yet sometimes heartbreaking.

Who doesn’t love a cosy crime novel to keep you company when the nights are drawing in? This is a fantastic murder mystery set in Brighton with colourful characters that you can’t help but warm to and a proper whodunnit at its heart. The narrative is cleverly interspersed with literary references and every detail has been considered so that you are left guessing until the very end.

From Dawn's list on escapism on a rainy Autumn evening.
