'When Peggy Smith’s carer arrives to find her patient dead, nothing seems immediately suspicious until she finds a business card next to Peggy’s chair – ‘Peggy Smith: Murder Consultant’. As she discovers that many of the hundreds of crime novels crowding the apartment feature Peggy in the acknowledgements (“Thanks for the murders”), the carer starts to see the situation in a different light. With a cast of well-written characters and an enjoyable, pacy plot, this is perfect for fans of The Thursday Murder Club.'

The ultimate gripping murder mystery for winter nights, from the bestselling author of The Stranger Diaries and the Dr Ruth Galloway MysteriesPS: thanks for the murders.The death of a ninety-year-old woman with a heart condition should absolutely not be suspicious.

But when Natalka reveals that Peggy lied about her heart condition and that she had been sure someone was following her...And that Peggy Smith had been a 'murder consultant' who plotted deaths for authors, and knew more about murder than anyone has any right to...And when clearing out Peggy's flat ends in Natalka being held at gunpoint by a masked figure...Well then DS Harbinder Kaur thinks that maybe there is no such thing as an unsuspicious death after all.From the sleepy seaside town of Shoreham to the granite streets of Aberdeen, The Postscript Murders is a literary mystery for fans of Anthony Horowitz, Agatha Christie and anyone who's ever wondered just how authors think up such realistic crimes...PS: Trust no one.
