In Person: Murder by the Book
The title for this month is The Family Game by Catherine Steadman.
Harriet Reed, a novelist on the brink of literary stardom, is newly engaged to Edward Holbeck the heir of an extremely powerful family. Although Edward has kept his family at arm’s length, the news of the couple’s marital bliss brings the Holbecks back into their lives. Robert, Edward’s father hands Harriet a tape of a book he has been working on, and when Harriet pushes play, it’s clear it isn’t just a novel, it’s a confession of a grisly crime.
