A group of Christie buffs. . .In honor of Agatha
Christie's one hundredth birthday, mystery bookstore owner
Annie Laurance Darling plans a week-long celebration of
mystery, treasure hunts, title clues, and Christie trivia.
Yet even as the champagne is chilling and the happy guests
begin arriving on Broward's Rock Island, Annie feels a
niggling sense of doom. But the last thing she or her guests
expect is that the scheduled fun and mayhem will include a
real-life murder. The unexpected arrival of Neil Bledsoe,
the most despised book critic in America, was sure to raise
a few hackles. An advocate of hard-boiled detection and gory
true crime, Bledsoe drops a bombshell on the devoted
Christie assemblage: He's penning a scurrilous biography of
the grand dame of suspense herself. Before the first title
clue is solved, no less than two attempts are made on
Bledsoe's life. Now Annie and her unflappable husband, Max
Darling, find themselves trying to stop a murder in the
making-only the first corpse isn't the one they're
expecting. . .and it isn't the last.
