Utterly original and breathtakingly intriguing, The Christmas Murder Game is a twisty-turny masterpiece. With captivatingly quirky characters, a spooky country house mansion, and clues and riddles galore this pacy mystery keeps you hooked to the very last page. A must read this Christmas. * Steph Broadribb *
With The Christmas Murder Game, Alexandra Benedict has created the perfect updating of the classic Christmas Country House mystery, and in Lily has created a brilliant, brave and wonderfully human heroine. The traditionalists will love the sensual descriptions of Endgame, the amazing food served there and the crisp falling snow that traps the inhabitants therein, while those who love their Holiday reading a little more modern will find much to admire in the manners and mores of the wonderfully bickering family. Puzzle fans, meanwhile, will adore the games-within-games in this smart, sassy, sexy and brilliantly written Holiday mystery. If you love Christmas, corsets, mysteries, murders and puzzles, then your Holiday reading is sorted. The Christmas Murder Game is the perfect escape from the craziness of Christmas, and I cannot recommend it highly enough. Fabulous festive fun. Just read it, and thank me later * Derek Farrell *
The perfect Christmas read, with a taut plot, a central character you will want to cheer on and puzzles galore for both readers and the players of the game * W.C. Ryan *
Curl up by the fire (and lock all the doors) for this Christmas cracker of a book. Hugely entertaining * CS Green *
Perfectly pitched for cold nights and warm fires. A lovely Golden Age tribute * Sinead Crowley *
This book gripped me from start to last page and didn't let go even after I finished. This gripping, twisty, claustrophobic thriller is an atmospheric, tense, unrelenting brilliant read from Alexandra Benedict * Merilyn Davies *
One for book lovers that can't get enough of mystery fiction - even during Christmas * The Sun *
This Agatha Christie-esque murder mystery is superbly written and so cleverly plotted. Readers will enjoy the challenges set by the author to solve anagrams and spot the titles of her favourite country house festive mysteries hidden within the text. You'll be drawn in by the lavish, atmospheric setting and there's a definite sense of being trapped alongside the dysfunctional family. Like Lily, you'll have no idea who to trust . . . * My Weekly *
This is the perfect Christmas book. Get it for yourself to read when the nights are cold and dark and give it as a present. To everyone! * Martyn Waites *
