And Then There Was No One

(2008)
(The third book in the Evadne Mount Trilogy series)
A novel by

 
 
The writer and professional controversialist Gustav Slavorigin is murdered in the small Swiss town of Meiringen during its annual Sherlock Holmes Festival, his body discovered with an arrow through the heart. With a price of ten million dollars on Slavorigin's head, almost none of the Festival's guests can be regarded as above suspicion. Except Evadne Mount, of course, the stubborn amateur sleuth and bestselling crime novelist from Gilbert Adair's "The Act of Roger Murgatroyd" and "A Mysterious Affair of Style". Neither of those two cases, however, prepared her for the jaw-dropping twists of this new investigation, which climaxes at Meiringen's principal tourist attraction, the Reichenbach Falls - the site of Holmes fatal confrontation with his nemesis, Moriarty ...As the reader soon realises, though, "And Then There Was No One" is infinitely more than the final part of a trilogy of detective stories. It's a hole-in-one, a hall of mirrors, a Nabokovian homage, a tour de force of stylistic brio and narrative ingenuity, a conjuring act that ends with the conjuror - or author - sawing himself in half.
