______________

Private Investigator Daniel Hawthorne and the writer Anthony Horowitz have been invited to a literary festival on the island of Alderney to talk about their new book . . .

Very soon they discover that dark forces are at work.

Alderney is in turmoil over a planned power line that will cut through it, desecrating a war cemetery and turning neighbour against neighbour.

And the visiting authors seem to be harbouring any number of unpleasant secrets.

When the festival's wealthy sponsor is found brutally murdered, Alderney goes into lockdown and Hawthorne knows he doesn't have to look too far for suspects. There's no escape. The killer is still on the island.

And there's about to be a second death . . .

steve coz 1 ,

A line to kill

Witty good read read all the books

RJOB Cov ,

A recommended read

Third in the series and about to start #4.
Have to admit that although book 1 was a difficult read at first, it did get me hooked and the characters are a joy to follow as they jockey for superiority.. but that position belongs solely to Hawthorne.
Hope there is a #5 eventually

Mischa's ma ,

A Line to Kill.
