By the Pricking of Her Thumb Paperback / softback
by Adam Roberts
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.
