Waterstones Says

Centring around the death of a woman who plotted murders for crime writers, this sharp and haunting literary whodunnit shows Elly Griffiths at the height of her talents.

The ultimate gripping murder mystery from the bestselling author of The Stranger Diaries and the Dr Ruth Galloway Mysteries

PS: Thanks for the murders.

The death of a ninety-year-old woman with a heart condition should absolutely not be suspicious. DS Harbinder Kaur certainly sees nothing to concern her in carer Natalka's account of Peggy Smith's death.

But when Natalka reveals that Peggy lied about her heart condition and that she had been sure someone was following her...

And that Peggy Smith had been a 'murder consultant' who plotted deaths for authors, and knew more about murder than anyone has any right to...

And when clearing out Peggy's flat ends in Natalka being held at gunpoint by a masked figure...

Well then DS Harbinder Kaur thinks that maybe there is no such thing as an unsuspicious death after all.

From the sleepy seaside town of Shoreham to the granite streets of Aberdeen, The Postscript Murders is a literary mystery for fans of Anthony Horowitz, Agatha Christie and anyone who's ever wondered just how authors think up such realistic crimes...

PS: Trust no one.

A light-hearted, life-affirming celebration of crime fiction and the colourful characters that create it... such witty and charming entertainment * The Times *
Delicious, unadulterated entertainment * Sunday Express *
This super-readable thriller will have you hooked * The Sun *
A love letter to murder mysteries, wrapped up in a character-rich caper * Sunday Mirror *
Griffiths assembles a vivid cast of characters, offering an enjoyably modern take on an old genre * The Sunday Times *
If you're looking for a laugh and to travel on a murder hunt, The Postscript Murders is the read for you. * Daily Record *
An entertaining mystery for book-lovers * Good Housekeeping *
Always an expert in building tension and creating atmosphere in her thrillers, Elly Griffiths' latest is no exception * Woman's Weekly *
Dark and addictive * Woman's Weekly Fiction *
Expert in building tension in her thrillers, Elly Griffith's latest tale is no exception * Woman *
Sparkling homage to vintage English crime novels ... nostalgic, charming but not without edge * Irish Examiner *
Elly Griffiths writes with a sharp, smart eye and great elegance . . . compelling, intelligent and increasingly mesmerising -- Peter James
One of my flat-out favourite contemporary suspense writers ... I turn each final page both deeply satisfied and ravenous for more -- AJ Finn, author of The Woman in the Window
Great on character and suspense -- Val McDermid
As with her other books, this is fiercely intelligent, warm, human and at times, funny. The Stranger Diaries picks up where the great Gothic thrillers of the past leave off. At once a homage to that great literary form, and a re-imagining, it is goose-bump spooky, smart, and haunting, in every sense. I loved this book! And you will too -- Louise Penny
Delightful . . . combines professional expertise with a wry sense of humour * Sunday Times *
Griffiths excels at likable characters who resonate with modern times * The Times Audio of the Week *
Lands somewhere between The Magpie Murders and The Thursday Murder Club: urbane, witty and elegantly assembled ... an absolute delight * Irish Times *
Sharply plotted ... delightfully eccentric characters deftly drawn and the narrative threads cleverly pulled together to deliver a surprising denouement * Irish Independent *
