“Things are not what they seem as two writers face the same intriguing woman from their past -- and, as deaths occur in her family, novels become a haunting mirror of death. Guillermo Martinez knows just how to manipulate your thoughts, and to throw a twist at you when you least expect it. An awesome read!”
-- Linda Grana, Lafayette Book Store, Lafayette, CA


Description

A chilling new tale of literary intrigue from the author of the international sensation The Oxford Murders

When Guillermo Martínez 's novel The Oxford Murders was first published in the United States, The New York Times Book Review called it "a scholarly whodunit [for] anyone who loves a good mystery." Now Martínez returns with a worthy followup: the mesmerizing The Book of Murder. A young writer finds himself unexpectedly tangled up in the story of Luciana, his former assistant and Kloster, bestselling author and rival. What he discovers about the deaths surrounding Luciana will make him question everything he had always believed-and taken for granted-about chance and calculation, cause and effect.
