Today I am with Andy Barber, a DA, whose son, Jacob, may or may not have killed his classmate by stabbing him in the chest and leaving him in the woods.
This is the book I am really struggling with. I am about 100 pages in and frankly I just don’t care one way or the other who did what, when and why. I will struggle onwards as it is a book club read. Has anyone read it? Does it get better?
By all accounts William Landay has written two other very well received books, so there is hope!
Today I am staying at the Hotel du Lac, sitting on the terrace drinking tea with Emily Hope. Emily seems to have misbehaved a little at home and on the suggestion of her friends is getting away for a while.
I can feel the sun on my face and a light breeze on my skin. It’s all very pleasant indeed.
Today I am with Tommy and Tuppence. Apparently there are some spies in a boarding house on the South Coast, planning to wreak havoc on the Allie’s war effort. Tommy and Tuppence are having none of it and are working on unmasking the fiend. My money is on the retired Major…
Today I am with Nobody Owens. He’s just a toddler, but he has crawled out of his crib to explore and has ended up in the local graveyard. Meanwhile, a very nasty man indeed has murdered Nobody’s family, and is now on the hunt for him.
Today I am with M. Poirot, we are cruising down the Nile. There are a couple of newlyweds being stalked by a very annoyed ex-bestfriend. This isn’t going to end well, I am sure, and the heat is playing merry havoc with M. Poirot’s moustache.
Today I am with John Cole. We have broken down and found an old house where we have stopped for help. The people who live there seem to know John and have been expecting him. He doesn’t know them at all. I am thoroughly creeped out.
Today I with a man who fought in the Russian Civil War, during which he killed a man, with no witnesses. Now we are in Paris and he has bought a book of short stories, one of which is an account of the killing accurate to every detail. Is the man we thought we killed not actually dead?
