From Library Staff

From the creator of Foyle's War and Midsummer Murders comes this English murder mystery that seamlessly blends fiction with nonfiction. An interesting way to tell a traditional who done it. I think that Agatha Christie and P.D. James would approve.

Written by Anthony Horowitz, featuring protagonist Anthony Horowitz. It doesn't sound like it would work, but it really, really does. Contemporary London with murder, a movie deal, and a music box.
