Content descriptions

General Note: Originally published as The Narrow Bed in the United Kingdom in 2016 by Hodder & Stoughton.
Summary, etc.: A stand-up comedian wonders who she can trust when she anonymously receives the same token clue, a small white book, that has been found at each scene of a serial murder case.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2018 November #2
    Books are not only everywhere in this serial-killer investigation, they are also the key to identifying the murderer. A perpetrator dubbed Billy Dead Mates by police (a play on words for the English term "Billy No Mates," meaning a person who has no friends) has already shot two pairs of best friends. Each of the victims was given a small, white handmade book bearing a single handwritten line of poetry shortly before being killed. When stand-up comedian Kim Tribbeck realizes that she also received such a book, which she either mislaid or trashed, she becomes part of the investigation and begins writing her own book, excerpted here. As a member of the team on the case, DC Simon Waterhouse, both brilliant and unorthodox, calls on his wife, Sergeant Charlie Zailer, for assistance in working with Kim, and Kim assists Charlie in uncovering what Charlie's sister, Olivia, is lying about. Accusations of misogyny aside, this tenth in the Waterhouse-Zailer series has a lighter tone than others and a motive that seems insufficient for taking multiple lives. Still, it's a wonderfully played-out puzzle, with food for thought about the importance of books. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
