Years ago there was the Detection Club, its members were mystery writers including Agatha Christie. The group collaborated on several books. In a way, The Deadly Hours and its authors remind me of that since this title involves four writers in an interlinked story. The four have all written historical mysteries that have been popular and good reads. Here, they work well together telling the tale of a gold watch beginning in the 1700s and moving forward in time through several locales in Italy, Edinburgh and more. It is a unique read.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher, the wonderful Poisoned Pen Press, for this book in exchange for an honest review.
