A mystery novelist with writer’s block, a lavish party to ring in the new year, and a film star with three bullets through his head…

December 1927. Mystery-writer Marius Quin has one previous bestseller, endless looming mortgage payments, and no idea how to write his next book. When his childhood friend Lady Isabella Montague invites him to an intimate New Year’s Eve party hosted by a narcissistic actor, Marius seizes upon the distraction. With his perpetually glum Basset hound along for the ride, he navigates the snowy lanes to the opulent estate of Everham Hall. As the celebrations begin, fireworks light up the sky, champagne corks pop, and then the host is murdered…

Snowed-in and with the police unable to reach them, Marius is the closest thing the panicked party has to a detective and he is swiftly nominated to find the killer. But when two more guests are attacked, Marius soon realises that solving mysteries is even harder than writing them. With Bella at his side, and a clutch of conniving suspects to choose from, can Marius find the culprit before the killer targets him?

A completely charming and witty golden-age cozy mystery, perfect for the Christmas season. Fans of Agatha Christie, T E Kinsey and Lee Strauss won’t be able to put down the Marius Quin Mysteries!

Simply fantastic! Very well paced not leaving you bored at any point during the book. The ending is such a curve ball that you thought was coming and then didn't and then wait a minute... did that just happen ? Can't wait to read more of this author!

A thoroughly enjoyable listen, craftily written with that wry British humour we all love, and some surprises along the way. I have to mention the excellent narrator, George Blagden, who so ably makes each character come alive!! Very much looking forward to the next offering!!

Basically ok but I grew bored withthe characters - I skipped to the end after listening to about half of the book for the murderer and how the main character ended up.
