More on the book

Behind the scenes

  • The ‘who-dun-it’ genre is my absolute favourite film genre of all time. So I felt very nervous writing this one. I wanted to make sure I used all the detective tricks I’d learnt after years of watching mystery movies. My favourite are by Agatha Christie. She’s an amazing writer who’s written a gazillion books, many of which have been made into movies. Miss Marple and Hercule Poirot are my two favourite of all of her characters.
