The Woman in the Library

This book in a book, where you are never quite sure where the story begins and reality ends is absolutely unputdownable. One day four strangers are sitting at a table in the Boston Public Library. They hear a piercing scream. The library is cordoned off and then closed. A murder has occurred and these four unlikely characters quickly form a deep friendship. Handsome Man is a published author working on his next novel, Heroic Chin is trying to fail Harvard Law School to piss off his socialite parents, Freud girl - a tattoo covered beauty getting her graduate degree in psychology. Lastly, there is Freddie, an Australian writer on scholarship who deems this scene as chapter one of her latest mystery, a work in progress. As the strangers learn about each other, more dead bodies are discovered and fingers are pointed. The police investigate and alibi’s become crucial. The story unfolds with a string of letters interspersed between a famous author named Hannah and Freddie’s neighbor Leo (friend or psychopath?) In an unexpected twist the reader finds themselves in a fictional funhouse. Writers, books and murder mystery all rolled into one, this wholly original tale is a must read for summer. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
