The Appeal, by Janice Hallett

Featured in the Luxuread June 2021 box.

(Inclusive of all postage costs)

An extraordinarily inventive thriller debut in which the reader is challenged to solve the crime... and predict the victim. With the small-town intrigue of The Casual Vacancyand the deft plotting of Agatha Christie, this is unlike any novel you've read before.

In a town full of secrets
Someone was murdered.
Someone went to prison.
And everyone's a suspect.
Can you uncover the truth?


Dear Reader,

Enclosed are documents relating to the events surrounding the Fairway Players' staging of All My Sons, and the tragic death of one of its members. Another member is currently in prison for the crime. We have reason to suspect that they are innocent, and that there were far darker secrets that have yet to be revealed.

We believe that the killer has given themselves away. It's there in writing, hidden in the emails, texts, and letters. In the events surrounding the charity appeal for little Poppy Reswick, and the question of whether that money was truly being used to fund her life-saving cancer treatment. Will you accept the challenge? Can you uncover the truth? Do you dare?

The standout debut thriller of 2021 that delivers multiple brilliant twists, and will change the way you think about the modern crime novel.
