About this deal

However when a member of the cast is murdered the Three Dahlias are needed to work together to solve the mystery. Well plotted and reads quick and i feel you will want to get comfortable and settled as you will be gripped until you have finished the book. There is a good deal of discussion round the table about whether the director, Anton, is planning to change the identity of the murderer in this new production and whether he is actually entitled to do that.

I do like the trio of narrators it's a good way to move the story along but this time it just didn't move on fast enough.And this time, with a storm raging, the river flooded and the bridge washed out, there are no police to rely on so it’s up to the three Dahlias to stop a murderer in their tracks… before another victim is claimed. This is the second in the Dahlia Lively series and it follows on from the first, so I would recommend that you read that one prior to this to fully understand the characters. The ending wasn't a surprise; we knew it had to be one of a fairly small group of people, most of them not all that likable. The story picks up slightly after the first book finished and follows the characters whilst they are actually filming the film from the first book. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

I got into this one straight away, transported to a country house for an engaging homage to vintage golden age murder; full of 30’s flair and with a twisty modern vibe.After a lot of pages of- nothing-happenings and Rosalind being threatened, but won't go to the police -later (which is around 168 pages or half mark of the book) we finally get the first body dropped. As the body count rises a storm cuts off Ty Gwn leaving the cast stranded with a murderer amongst them. There are a couple of things missed in the editing, particularly towards the end but that doesn't spoil a wonderfully entertaining novel. The supporting characters are a mixed bag of film actors and locals at the local pub where the film stars are staying.
