Smoke and Mirrors

Krimi von Elly Griffiths

Brighton, 1951. Pantomime season takes a dark turn when two missing children are found dead under the snow, surrounded by sweets – a macabre, real-life Hansel and Gretel. DI Edgar Stephens has plenty of leads to investigate. The missing girl, Annie, used to write plays and perform them with her friends. Does the clue lie in Annie’s unfinished – and rather disturbing – last script? Or might it lie with the eccentric actor types who have assembled for the pantomime?

Band 2 der Serie. „One of the things that I like about Elly Griffiths books is that they are all different. Some authors seem to stick to the same plot every time, but not Elly. This mystery is well plotted, the pantomime clever and the characters are believable.“ (Leserin) (145 Rezensionen / 4,5 Sterne), 352 Seiten noch günstig?

The Zig Zag Girl

Krimi von Elly Griffiths

Brighton, 1950. When the body of a girl is found, cut into three, Detective Inspector Edgar Stephens is reminded of a magic trick, the Zig Zag Girl. The inventor of the trick, Max Mephisto, is an old friend of Edgar’s. They served together in the war as part of a shadowy unit called the Magic Men. Max is still on the circuit, touring seaside towns in the company of ventriloquists, sword-swallowers and dancing girls. Changing times mean that variety is not what it once was, yet Max is reluctant to leave this world to help Edgar investigate. But when the dead girl turns out to be known to him, Max changes his mind.
