BOOK OF THE WEEK: Murder in Midsummer by various authors

By Spalding Reporter

This week's choice by the team at Bookmark in Spalding is perfect for fans of a good mystery...

Murder never takes a holiday. A rock pool with a deadly secret, a bank holiday heatwave dominated by the murder of an unknown man.

A sun-drenched picnic that ends in a sinister locked-room mystery. And an Adriatic holiday interrupted by a beautiful couple ... who aren't quite who they seem to be.

All these, and many more, can be found in these classic stories of summertime murder and mayhem.

The collection of tales are written by masters of the genre from Dorothy L Sayers to Arthur Conan Doyle, Margery Allingham to Ruth Rendell and more.

From St Mark's Square in Venice to England, their tales will puzzle, entertainand prove that no matter how far you travel - there's no rest for the wicked.

Murder in Midsummer (RRP £8.99) is available at Bookmark in The Crescent, Spalding, at £6.99. There's an extra 20% off with the voucher in this week's Spalding Guardian (on sale June 6-12).
