One for Sorrow, Two for Joy
Susan Ryeland is looking forward to reading bestselling crime author Alan Conway's new manuscript.

Three for a Girl, Four for a Boy
However, his latest crime novel set in a sleepy English village, is not all that it may seem.

Five for Silver, Six for Gold
For within the tale hides another story.  Susan finds herself playing detective, as she wonders, is life imitating art?

Seven for a Mystery that needs to be Solved...
Editor Susan Ryeland has worked with bestselling crime writer Alan Conway for years.  Readers love his detective, Atticus Pund, a celebrated solver of crimes in the sleepy English villages of the 1950's.

But Conway's latest tale of murder at Pye Hall is not quite what it seems.  Yes, there are dead bodies and a host of intriguing suspects, but hidden in the pages of the manuscript lies another story: a tale written between the very words on the page, telling of real-life jealousy, greed, ruthless ambition and murder.
