PRE-ORDER NOW THE EAGERLY AWAITED FOLLOW-UP TO THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER EVERYONE IN MY FAMILY HAS KILLED SOMEONE.
Ernest Cunningham returns in a deliciously witty locked room (train) mystery.
When the Australian Mystery Writers' Society invited me to their crime-writing festival aboard the Ghan, the famous train between Darwin and Adelaide, I was hoping for some inspiration for my second book. Fiction, this time- I needed a break from real people killing each other. Obviously, that didn't pan out.
The program is a who's who of crime writing royalty-
the debut writer (me!)
the forensic science writer
the blockbuster writer
the legal thriller writer
the literary writer
the psychological suspense writer.
But when one of us is murdered, six authors quickly turn into five detectives. Together, we should know how to solve a crime.
Or commit one.
How can you find a killer when all the suspects know how to get away with murder?

Ernest Cunningham has been invited to a crime fiction writing festival aboard the famous Gahn. Naturally, a murder occurs, and the authors, turned detectives, try to solve the crime. Everyone is a suspect. This is also perfect inspiration for Ernest's next book!
