by Marilyn Levinson

Professor Lexie Driscoll is conducting the first meeting of the Golden Age of Mystery book club in her best friend’s swanky mansion when another friend is murdered. More members are knocked off as Lexie unravels secret after secret, leading her to believe she's living in Christie's novel, And Then There Were None. Using Miss Marple’s knowledge of human nature and Hercule Poirot’s cunning, Lexie reveals the murderer.

I have a confession to make. I have never read an Agatha Christie mystery. No, not one. But if Ms. Levinson writes even one half as well as Christie, I’ve surely been missing out.

This was a fast moving, keep you up reading mystery for sure. Cozy fans will really enjoy the writing style. Indeed, mystery fans of any sub-genre will be delighted with this book. 

Give MURDER a la CHRISTIE a read and see for yourself if you are transported into the Christie way of storytelling. 

A former Spanish teacher, Marilyn Levinson writes mysteries, romantic suspense, and books for kids.

Untreed Reads has brought out new e-editions of her first Twin Lakes mystery, A Murderer Among Us--a Suspense Magazine Best Indie and currently on Book Town's Summer Reading List of 2014--and the sequel, Murder in the Air.
