DI Vera Stanhope is not one to make friends easily, but her hippy neighbours keep her well-supplied in homebrew and conversation so she has more tolerance for them than most. When one of them goes missing, she feels duty-bound to find out what happened. Somewhere there is a killer who has taken murder off the page and is making it real.

This is a murder mystery that I can recommend to readers. Cleves has the genre down pat: a troupe of like minded individuals drawn together by a series of literary workshops. And then there is a murder. And then there is another. And then V era Stanhope arrives on the scene to solve the murders. Suspense. False, misleading clues. And then finally the crimes are solved. Anne Cleves does Agatha Christie. Well.

One of the weaker Ann Cleeves books. I may however have been swayed by watching a couple of episodes of "Vera" so maybe while reading this my image of the detective and other characters was changed by the tv show. Regardless, I just didn't find the setting of this novel very intriguing. Kind of a classic "Clue" novel, with all the suspects in one location, which is kind of neat but I just didn't care about the suspects nor the whole writer's house aspect of the book. The last Vera Stanhope book was better (as was the Shetland series). Still, I enjoy this authors writing and it is still fun to try and figure out who did it.
