If you want to write a murder mystery, you have to do some research...In a luxury flat in Monaco, John Houston's supermodel wife lies in bed, a bullet in her skull. Houston is the world's most successful novelist, the playboy head of a literary empire that produces far more books than he could ever actually write. Now the man who has invented hundreds of best-selling killings is wanted for a real murder and on the run from the police, his life transformed into something out of one of his books. And in London, the ghostwriter who is really behind those books has some questions for him too...

“About half as clever as it thinks”

You can't blame Philip Kerr for wanting to let off a bit of steam and have some fun, but this attempt at satirising the thriller-by-ghostwriter industry isn't anywhere near as sharp as someone of his talents... More
