DUE NOVERMBER 10. Like its predecessor, Magpie Murders, Moonflower Murders offers readers two delicious mysteries for the price of one. Former editor, amateur detective and half-hearted hotelier Susan Ryland finds herself back in London to investigate the disappearance of Cecily Treherne, a woman who has uncovered a new clue to a murder that a possibly innocent man has already served eight years in prison for. She has found it in a murder mystery Ryland herself edited. The reader gets to try to untangle the puzzle of the current mystery by finding the clue in the second complete novel embedded in its center. In this meta tour-de-force, author Anthony Horowitz deftly moves from the modern voice of the Ryland's world to the Christie-esque voice of the book she edited and back again. Such a treat for mystery lovers! Recommended by Kellyl
