Praise for Elly Griffiths and THE POSTSCRIPT MURDERS
A Most Anticipated Title of 2021 from Crime Reads and The Buzz Magazines
A Best Book of March from New York Post and PopSugar
"This droll romp is a latter-day Miss Marple.”
“A limitless talent, a novelist in the humane vein of Louise Penny and Kate Atkinson, Elly Griffiths is one of my flat-out favorite contemporary suspense writers. No matter the book—a Ruth Galloway mystery, a Magic Men caper, an ambitious, assured non-series thriller—she innovates and excites; I turn each final page both deeply satisfied and ravenous for more.”
"A macabre ode to the mystery genre."
"A motley and charming trio of amateur sleuths...Griffiths’ strong sense of place—the sea is sparkling yet unsettling, Aberdeen’s cliffs beautiful yet unforgiving—provides a rich foundation for a cleverly constructed story with complex, memorable characters...A cozy bibliophile’s delight of a mystery that turns writerly research and acknowledgments into fodder for pivotal plot points, offers a tongue-in-cheek peek at the publishing business and pays tribute to friendships that transform into chosen families."
“Delightful...Told with Griffiths's characteristic charm and gentleness.”
“A light-hearted, life-affirming celebration of crime fiction and the colourful characters that create it...Such witty and charming entertainment.”
“Delicious, unadulterated entertainment.”
“This super-readable thriller will have you hooked.”
“A love letter to murder mysteries, wrapped up in a character-rich caper.”
“Griffiths assembles a vivid cast of characters, offering an enjoyably modern take on an old genre.”
—The Sunday Times
“If you're looking for a laugh and to travel on a murder hunt, The Postscript Murders is the read for you.”
“An entertaining mystery for book-lovers.”
“Always an expert in building tension and creating atmosphere in her thrillers, Elly Griffiths' latest is no exception.”
“Dark and addictive.”
—Woman's Weekly Fiction
"Smart and complex...even a little comic. Very satisfying; the intelligence unmistakable and the characters made as knowable as those in The Stranger Diaries, and—well, and this is clearly just a writer to be trusted with as much of your attention as she asks for."
"Complex characters, hidden histories, and adept twists enrich the narrative. Readers will be enthralled."
"Griffiths, author of the long-running Ruth Galloway series, follows the success of her first standalone, The Stranger Diaries (2019), winner of the 2020 Edgar for Best Novel, with another irresistible thriller...Bibliophile genre fans will enjoy the insider’s look at publishing and relish the intoxicating, often intoxicated, milieu of the festival. All readers will devour the cleverly constructed story, replete with Griffiths’ trademark engaging prose, well-placed humor, and always-endearing characters."
