The Festival Murders
A marvellous set of unsavoury suspects' Mail on Sunday Thriller of the Week 'A rollicking read' Evening Standard'Ingenious' IndependentBryce Peabody is ready to give a scandalous talk at the annual literary festival in the pretty English town of Mold-on-Wold. Scathing in his reviews and unseemly in his affairs, Bryce is known to have many enemies. So when he is discovered dead in his hotel room festival-goers are desperate to know what happened.
Could one of the numerous writers he insulted have taken revenge? Or perhaps one of his scorned lovers? As more festival-goers meet their ends, Francis Meadowes is drawn into a role he knows only from his own fiction - that of amateur detective.
