Mystery of the Moonflower Murders by Anthony Horowitz

Why this won: June’s Book (Trail) of the Month

Excellent sense of place

A very unique premise of a story within a story

The main character is someone who used to work in publishing

Two excellent novels for the price of one

A golden age classic and a brilliant detective from the 1930s in the historical storyline

The grand hotel in the novel is wonderfully evoked.

Love the cover and the title!

I loved this book for many reasons. It was clever, well-written and I immersed myself into it. Two locations, two main storylines. Readers are spoilt for choice!

Overall, the setting of the hotel was particularly vivid. First, a murder. Second, a disappearance. All the while, a book that could reveal the truth in its pages. This felt very Agatha Christie and golden age delicious.
