A Line To Kill

by Anthony Horowitz

Publication: Century, 2021, London

First edition. As new, unread copy in fine dust jacket. Signed by the author. Private Investigator Daniel Hawthorne and the writer Anthony Horowitz have been invited to a literary festival on the tiny island of Alderney to talk about their new book. There has never been a murder on Alderney. It's a tiny island, just three miles long and a mile and a half wide. The perfect location for a brand-new literary festival. Very soon they discover that dark forces are at work. Alderney is in turmoil over a planned power line that will cut through it, desecrating a war cemetery and turning neighbor against neighbor. The visiting authors - including a blind medium, a French performance poet and a celebrity chef - seem to be harboring any number of unpleasant secrets. When the festival's wealthy sponsor is found brutally murdered, Alderney goes into lockdown and Hawthorne knows that he doesn't have to look too far for suspects. There's no escape. The killer is still on the island. And there's about to be a second death...
