From Publishers Weekly: "An exceptionally dexterous mystery-cum-romance assembles a group of mystery writers for a charity Mystery Week Game held in Jon Stuart's Scottish castle. Sabrina Holloway had missed the previous event four years earlier when Jon's beautiful, shrewish wife fell to her death. Deemed an accident, many still suspect murder, and Jon cannot be ruled out. The narrative wanders a bit as it hops between characters' beds and heads, though both perambulations are elements in stirring the suspense. Sabrina continually fends off a randy ex-husband while falling again for the dark mystery man, Jon, who she once loved. Pozzessere designs an exceptional setting that includes a crypt, secret passages and a dungeon filled with realistic tableaux of wax figuresAall historical murderers, sadists, torturers and the tortured who resemble the lively bickering writers in attendance. A few mysterious diversions lack impact but the final who of this whodunit is delightfully unexpected." Copyright 1998 Reed Business Information, Inc.

When I started this book, it appeared to be a tired storyline ..it reminded me of "ten little indians", but once I got into it, it was pretty darned good! Towards the end, I couldn't put it down.

Three years ago while hosting a week long murder mystery party, Author Jon Stuart saw his wife fall off of a balcony to her death. Rumors circled that the Stuart's marriage was on the rocks and he killed her. Although Jon was cleared of any involvement and Cassandra's death was determined to be an accident, Jon believed that his wife was murdered. Now Jon has decided to throw another murder mystery party and invite all of the people who attended the last fatal party. Also invited is Sabrina Holloway, Jon's former lover. Jon wants to know if Sabrina believes the rumors about him and if they have a chance at happiness.

This story has everyone gathering at a remote castle for the party. Eventually they are snowed in with no way to get to civilization. The castle itself is old and scary. There is a collection of wax figures in the basement, all showing various killers throughout the years including Jack the Ripper. The cast is huge. Sabrina's ex-husband is among the writers in attendance. He annoyed me from the start. If I were her, I would have left this party long before getting stranded by the weather.

I started out listening to the audiobook version of this story. Although the narrator did a good job with the various voices of the characters, I was bored with parts of the story and my mind began to wander. Maybe there were too many people to keep track of. After a while I switched to reading the book and thought it was easier to follow. So, my rating may have been higher if I read the whole book instead of listening to the audiobook. My rating: 3.5 Stars.
