I was dreading the Cunningham family reunion even before the first murder.
Before the storm stranded us at the mountain resort, snow and bodies piling up.
The thing is, us Cunninghams don’t really get along. We’ve only got one thing in common: we’ve all killed someone.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
A self-proclaimed reliable narrator, Ernie Cunningham is an expert on crime writing, especially the golden age of murder mysteries. That serves him well when he’s drawn to a snow-swept family reunion at an Australian mountain resort, upping the already high stakes among a group of relatives who won’t let him forget a prior transgression. Opening with its attention-grabbing title phrase, this very meta mystery balances an intricate structure with both a chatty tone and a zippy pace. Author Benjamin Stevenson is also a stand-up comedian, which explains Ernie’s firm handle on rapid-fire commentary. It all makes for a gripping whodunit that’s also uncommonly funny. Perfect for fans of Knives Out, this book has been optioned by HBO for a limited series.
This was a refreshing approach to the classic whodunnit! It was both amusing and teasing in the reader’s quest to unveil the murdered in a nest of “killers”.
Really great mystery
Really well written. Loved the references to other mystery authors. Wished the ending was a bit more unexpected though.
I’ve never read a book like it. So well done! Well written and true to his rules
