‘Utterly original, hugely entertaining, and a must-read for every fan of the mystery genre’ JANE HARPER

I was dreading the Cunningham family reunion even before the first murder. Before the storm stranded us at the mountain resort.

The thing is, us Cunninghams don’t really get along.

We’ve only got one thing in common: we’ve all killed someone.

My brother, my step-sister, my wife, my father, my mother, my sister-in-law, my uncle, my step-father, my aunt. Even me.

When they find the first body in the snow, it’s clear that only a Cunningham could have committed the crime – and it’s up to me to prove it.

There are plenty of killers in my family. But only one murderer . . .

Publisher Review

I absolutely loved it. Utterly original, hugely entertaining, and a must-read for every fan of the mystery genre. What an exceptionally fresh, smart, funny book - I've never read anything like this before. -- Jane Harper An ingenious and hilarious meta-murder mystery . . . strangely moving * Sunday Times 'Best Crime Books of 2022' * As fresh and zingy as a salted lime. It's Knives Out meets Richard Osman. Or Dexter by way of Agatha Christie. Or Schitt's Creek with a body count. It's also the most luxuriantly enjoyable novel I've read in years. And years. I began toting my copy around town so that strangers would ask me about it - who could resist that title? I only wish there were more members of the Cunningham clan, so that this raucous, matchlessly entertaining mystery could go on longer. Benjamin Stevenson, I've got a lot to learn from you -- A.J. Finn The best thing I've read in ages. I absolutely loved it. Whip-smart, twisted, funny, and constructed with the pinpoint precision of a bloodthirsty watchmaker. -- Stuart MacBride This book had me hooked from the first chapter. Deliciously funny, dark and intriguing -- Alex Pavesi I absolutely loved it. It's so engaging, entertaining and charming. I don't think I've ever read anything like it, and it's such a fun read -- Marian Keyes Clever, unexpected, and not to be missed -- Karin Slaughter An exceptionally clever and amusing mystery. Stevenson carries off this tour de force with all the aplomb of a master magician who conducts his tricks in plain view * Publishers Weekly * This was such a clever, compelling read. It's a must for anyone who loves the rules of crime fiction, but it still packs plenty of twists. It had me laughing and turning the pages in equal measure. Bravo Mr Stevenson! -- S.J. Bennett An engrossing whodunnit, with an ingenious twist on the classic crime genre. The type of book you finish and want to immediately read again -- Kyle Perry If you're a classic murder mystery fan looking for something fresh and original, you will absolutely love this -- Anna Downes Surprising, darkly funny, clever and charming - you won't want to put this one down * Living Edge * A mystery for anyone who thinks they know all too well how mysteries are supposed to work -- Gabriel Bergmoser A homage to a golden age whodunnit, with a page-turner plot . . . Smart and funny * Business Post * My go-to recommendation this year. It has everything I love about great twisty mystery, presented in a hugely original package -- Jane Harper * Daily Express *
