Product description

Diana Cowper is calm and fastidious, and when she arrives at the funeral home of Cornwallis & Sons to make arrangements for her own funeral, she does so in her own particularly organised manner. Six hours later, after enjoying an expensive lunch and attending a board meeting, she is strangled to death at her home in Chelsea. This highly unusual mystery novel treads the line between fiction and true-crime. Horowitz is a totally engaging writer, and this is a brilliantly entertaining read from start to finish.
