Ronald Arbuthnott Knox, a Catholic Priest, came up with 10 Commandments for Detective Novelists, and Julianna Deering set out to write a book that broke all of the rules. Set in the 1930s, “Rules of Murder” is about an English gentleman and a beautiful American girl who work together to solve a murder mystery. Drew Farthering comes home just in time for a party and murder. A guest is murdered and his mother is found dead in her bedroom. Are the deaths connected? Was it murder-suicide? Drew and his new American acquaintance, Madeline Parker, start their own investigation when Drew doesn’t believe the local law enforcement is doing enough to solve the questions Drew has about the crimes. They soon discover that no one is who they claim to be and everyone is a suspect.
If you love Agatha Christie, you’ll love Deering’s plot, characters and perfect timing. She may break all of the rules of mystery writing according to Father Knox, but she will have you on the edge of your seat until the end. And you’ll never believe who did it….
