What I Tell You Three Times Is False(1988)
(The third book in the Sam Holt series)
A novel by Samuel Holt (Donald E Westlake)
Sam Holt played TV-detective Jack Packard for five years, and he doesn't want to do it again. Not in a movie, not in dinner theater, not even in a commercial for the American Cancer Society. But his tough-minded girlfriend ( It s not about you ) has carried the day, and now he s stuck on an isolated island, hunting clues to a cancer cure alongside Charlie Chan, Miss Marple, and Sherlock Holmes. The script says they re doomed to failure (translation: Donate money to cancer research). And when a genuine murder crops up, their sleuthing isn t likely to my much more successful; after all, these folks are not famous detectives, they just play em on TV. But with the cops cut off by a storm and a killer stalking the island, Holt and Co. must play detective for real.
