A nod to Agatha Christie's classic mystery novels, this mystery within a mystery features the famous fictional detective Atticus Pund, his creator Alan Conway, and Susan Ryeland, the editor who can't rest until she solves the mystery of the missing chapters. The audio was a delight, and I kept wanting to listen to just one more chapter.

I was totally engrossed in the manuscript being read by the editor, but was disappointed by the "true life" murder independent of the manuscript. I would still recommend the book. Kristi & Abby Tabby

The book became tiring to listen to after a while, despite a fairly good narration, and the concept of a book within a book wasn't enough to elevate the fairly humdrum and predictable whodunnit to a level that engaged the emotions. As more and more references to Agatha Christie and the potboiler kind of mystery writing accumulated, they explained the lack of appeal for me. Christie has never been a favourite mystery writer for me, the books always feel contrived and plotted rather than a natural exposition. The book seems to be a tribute to that style of fiction and despite some interesting echoes between the levels of the fictional concept, the plot plodded.

Good suspense, but too long and drawn-out!

Possibly the greatest murder mystery since young Agatha Christie won the bet with her sister that she could write such nonsense standing on her head. Horowitz is the new king, in my view. Very well written, credible characters, gripping though complicated plot and young Bond, the narrator, perfect.
