Everyone On This Train Is A Suspect

Everyone On This Train Is A Suspect

Summary

THE HIGHLY-ANTICIPATED FOLLOW-UP TO WATERSTONES PAPERBACK OF THE YEAR PICK, EVERYONE IN MY FAMILY HAS KILLED SOMEONE*

'Clever, satisfying, impossible to put down and gloriously inventive. It's fantastic' STUART TURTON

SIX WRITERS. FIVE DETECTIVES. FOUR DAYS. THREE WEAPONS. TWO MURDERS. ONE TRAIN . . .

When the Australian Mystery Writers' Society invited me to their crime-writing festival aboard the Ghan, the famous train between Darwin and Adelaide, I was hoping for some inspiration for my second book. Fiction, this time: I needed a break from real people killing each other. Obviously, that didn't pan out.

The program is a who's who of crime writing royalty:

the debut writer (me!)
the forensic science writer
the blockbuster writer
the legal thriller writer
the literary writer
the psychological suspense writer.

But when one of us is murdered, six authors quickly turn into five detectives. Together, we should know how to solve a crime.

Or commit one . . .

But how do you catch a killer, when all your suspects know how to get away with murder?
