Everyone in My Family Has Killed Someone
Aussie Benjamin Stevenson's debut mystery is so meta it would have Agatha Christie chuckling. A mystery writer himself, the narrator Ernest Cunningham finds himself snowed in at a fraught family reunion where the characters–his family members– are dropping like flies. He lays out for the reader his own strict rules of the mystery genre, rules he finds increasingly difficult to follow through a whiplash plot, where he and everyone around him vacillates from suspect to near victim and back again. A charmingly unique whodunit! Recommended by Kelly
Knives Out and Clue meet Agatha Christie and The Thursday Murder Club in this “utterly original” (Jane Harper), “not to be missed” (Karin Slaughter), fiendishly clever blend of classic and modern murder mystery.
