   schema:description ""When Parcel Force driver Bob Naylor plucks up courage to join his local writers circle in Chichester, he is nervous. He's not much of a reader, let alone a writer. He expects to meet people unlike himself, with names like Maurice, Amelia, Zach and Thomasine - and he finds them. But while he is prepared for some naked ambition he doesn't know it will include murder ... The death in a house fire of publisher Edgar Blacker propels Bob straight into a murder mystery. For Blacker had only recently addressed the circle. Most of its members had shown limn their work and he d actually promised to publish Maurice's book about unsolved murders. And then, for some reason, he pulled out of the deal. Being catapulted into the middle of a detective story excites and inspires some of the circle. Bob is pressed into helping Thomasine's unofficial investigation. Naomi and Zach go one step further - they start writing an on line, blow-by-blow account of the case. Soon they are relaying news of an attempted murder and the death of another of the circle. For the real-life detective Henrietta Mallin, these amateur sleuths muddy the waters. Especially as one thinks he's a genius, one mar well be a genius, and one has more in common with Lady Macbeth than Jane Austen. But Hen won't take nonsense from any of them as she unravels the sinister secret of the circle." (publisher)."@en ;
