The Postscript Murders by Elly Griffiths


Natalka works as a care giver.  When she finds one of her patients dead, sitting in a chair, she calls the police.  Since she was 90, the cops think she died of hear attack.  Natalka doesn't agree.  The autopsy report proves her right, she got a shot that killed her.  

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt and Edelweiss let me read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published March 2nd.

This is a complicated murder mystery.  More authors are killed, there are different killers, and the people who knew and loved them are looking for the murderers too.

These people are mostly immigrants so that's a factor in the murders too.  At the heart of it, it seems someone has plagiarized a book and that's why the original author died.  

Everyone wants to make sure no one speaks out about them.  One is shot in the head, one gets a deadly shot, and another method is used for the other death.

It takes a lot of work, but they do find the guilty parties.  I had no clue who they were.

There's quite a bit of book talk in this story as well as the investigation.  I enjoyed it.
