Über diesen Titel


A contemporary thriller in which some shocking truths are revealed about the housing racket, the world of publishing and promotion, and about the crippling effect of greed on people's lives. The author's previous books include "Patterns in the Dust", "The Face of Death" and "Wild Justice".

From Publishers Weekly:

The fifth mystery featuring Rain Morgan (after Guilty Knowledge ) is a highly original, satisfying tale. When Alf Wilson, an elderly screenwriter, "invites" his neighbors and gossip-columnist/sleuth Rain to discover his body hanging from his chandelier, it is an invitation for Rain to investigate whether the situation is a case of murder or not. In the meantime, novelist John Gower--whose success is thus far measured in positive reviews rather than in money--stages his own death in order to win publicity for his work. Unfortunately for Gower, the scheme works too well. While Gower's estranged wife and his agent reap the rewards, the author is left to hide in a remote cottage and later in an urban squatters' digs. He writes the masterpiece of his career, but finds himself leading a life increasingly similar to that of his own fictional main character. A mystery on two levels, with Rain's pursuit of the truth running parallel to the action in the false disappearance, the novel also examines the writing life as experienced by a journalist, a screenwriter and a novelist. A smashing conclusion brings Rain and Gower together in dangerous circumstances.

BookLovers of Bath is based in the rural idyll of Peasedown St. John in Somerset (God's Own Country) in the south west of England and actually very nearly in Bath. After 20 years of being “internet only” I have now opened a shop, Fact or Fable, in the premises of our now-closed Post Office. With over 20,000 books in stock and another 5,000 or so in the shop I run an old-fashioned book business with every book listed, graded, picked, packed and posted by my own fair hand… abetted by my Jack Russells who are really, not, helpful.
