Description

***THE TIMES CRIME BOOK OF THE MONTH, FROM THE AUTHOR OF INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER EVERYONE IN MY FAMILY HAS KILLED SOMEONE***

‘Brilliant, great fun. Takes the scenario of Murder on the Orient Express and plays it for laughs’ THE TIMES, CRIME BOOK OF THE MONTH

‘Clever, satisfying, impossible to put down and gloriously inventive. It’s fantastic’ STUART TURTON

SIX WRITERS. FIVE DETECTIVES. FOUR DAYS. THREE WEAPONS. TWO MURDERS. ONE TRAIN . . .

When the Australian Mystery Writers’ Society invited me to their crime-writing festival aboard the Ghan, the famous train between Darwin and Adelaide, I was hoping for some inspiration for my second book. Fiction, this time: I needed a break from real people killing each other. Obviously, that didn’t pan out.

The program is a who’s who of crime writing royalty:

the debut writer (me!)
the forensic science writer
the blockbuster writer
the legal thriller writer
the literary writer
the psychological suspense writer.

But when one of us is murdered, six authors quickly turn into five detectives. Together, we should know how to solve a crime.

Or commit one . . .

But how do you catch a killer, when all your suspects know how to get away with murder?

Publisher Review

Sparkling with wit and witticisms about the world of writers and writing, Everyone on This Train Is a Suspect offers a tip of the hat to the great Agatha Christie novel while at the same time being a modern reinvention of it. Leave it to Stevenson to make high-jinx and murder deviously good fun -- Nita Prose Fun and diverting, with a plethora of red herrings * New York Times * Clever, satisfying, impossible to put down and gloriously inventive. It's fantastic. Books like this are why we love reading -- Stuart Turton An outstanding and exceptional mystery from start to finish...everything fans would hope for -- Jane Harper This crackles on the page. Such an original voice -- Jane Fallon Praise for Benjamin Stevenson -- : 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 * Sunday Times * 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 -- 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 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
