Invitation to a Killer
Crime writer turned amateur sleuth Augusta Hawke is back and once again finds herself embroiled in another mystery. Malliet does not disappoint with her second Augusta Hawke mystery – the wit and dry sense of humour of her female protagonist is a joy to read as she navigates the colourful array of dinner guests – and potential murderers! – while trying to avoid becoming a victim herself. I can’t wait for readers to get stuck into this cosy mystery.
