By the Pricking of Her Thumb, Hardback Book

By the Pricking of Her Thumb Hardback


Private Investigator Alma is caught up in another impossible murder.

One of the world's four richest people may be dead - but nobody is sure which one.

Hired to discover the truth behind the increasingly bizarre behaviour of the ultra-rich, Alma must juggle treating her terminally ill lover with a case which may not have a victim. Inspired by the films of Kubrick, this stand-alone novel returns to the near-future of THE REAL-TOWN MURDERS, and puts Alma on a path to a world she can barely understand.

Witty, moving and with a mystery deep at its heart, this novel again shows Adam Roberts' mastery of the form.
