And Then They Were Doomed: A Little Library Mystery

Elizabeth Kane Buzzelli. Crooked Lane, $26.99 (336p) ISBN 978-1-64385-000-9
Buzzelli’s entertaining fourth Little Library mystery featuring literary biographer Zoe Zola (after 2018’s In Want of a Knife) finds Zoe at home in the small town of Bear Falls, Mich., working on her new book, Inside the Murderous Mind of Agatha Christie, when she receives an invitation from the Northern Michigan Christie Society to participate in a meeting and webinar. She agrees to attend, but soon after arriving at Netherworld Lodge, nothing is as it seems. When two of the 10 participants disappear, Zoe begins to suspect that life is imitating art, in this case Christie’s And Then There Were None. Cut off by torrential rains and with limited cell phone coverage, Zoe brings all her skills at anagrams and word puzzles, as well as her encyclopedic knowledge of Christie, to bear on the mystery, all the while aware that she may be the next target in a devious game of murder. This entry is good fun for both Christie and puzzle fans. Agent: Jessica Faust, BookEnds. (Aug.)
