A chilling new tale of literary intrigue from the author of the international sensationThe Oxford Murders

When Guillermo Martínez 's novel The Oxford Murders was first published in the United States,The New York Times Book Review called it "a scholarly whodunit [for] anyone who loves a good mystery." Now Martínez returns with a worthy followup: the mesmerizingThe Book of Murder. A young writer finds himself unexpectedly tangled up in the story of Luciana, his former assistant and Kloster, bestselling author and rival. What he discovers about the deaths surrounding Luciana will make him question everything he had always believed-and taken for granted-about chance and calculation, cause and effect.

Blackwell North Amer
One sleepy Sunday morning in Buenos Aires a struggling writer receives an unexpected phone call that draws him into the tangled story of Luciana, an old acquaintance, and Kloster, a rival author. The shocking things he discovers will make him question everything he had always taken for granted about chance and calculation, cause and effect.
One by one, Luciana's loved ones are dying - and she or her sister could be next. She's convinced that Kloster is behind the deaths, punishing her for the breakup of his family in a murderous frenzy of revenge worthy of one of his bestselling crime novels. But which comes first, murder or novel? The Book of Murder is a tale in which the line between fact and fiction suddenly seems blurred.
