A sharp-witted thriller

Two crime writers get entangled in their own web and (accidentally) commit murder

What happens when an illustrious and celebrated duo of crime writers start to hate each other? Harold and Paul worked together for years. Paul, the idea-giver of the two, has a major alcohol problem, while Harold puts the ideas into books and markets them. When their shared path threatens to end, jealousy and tension rise and bring up the question:

Why not put the fictional murder blueprints to good use and end each other?

A witty thriller set against the backdrop of Harold’s luxurious villa on the Southern coast of England. It would be a shame to miss this web of deceit and suspicion when fictive plans turn into cold-blooded reality.

In 1992, MURDER BY MISADVENTURE premiered at the Vaudeville Theatre in London’s West End and was greatly celebrated by critics and guests alike.

Wow, what a whodunit!
