About this deal
Lucinda’s The Seven Sisters series, which tells the story of adopted sisters and is inspired by the mythology of the famous star cluster, has become a global phenomenon. So che lo avete visto già tanto online e nelle librerie, ma sono qui per convincere chi come me non era interessato e ne potrebbe rimanere sorpreso, anche perché è un giallo che secondo me può essere apprezzato un po’ da tutti!
As Jazz must confront her personal demons, a grim discovery at the school will make this the most challenging murder investigation of her career. Detailgenau, lebendig und mit einem unfassbar schönen Schreibstil hat mich die Autorin auch dieses Mal wieder absolut überzeugt. About the book: “The Murders at Fleat House is a suspenseful and utterly compelling crime novel from the multi-million copy global bestseller, Lucinda Riley. He chose to honour his mother by leaving it unchanged, which I respect, but it means that this is not as good as it could’ve been with comprehensive editing and correction of various mistakes. Lucinda Riley was born in Northern Ireland, and after an early career as an actress in film, theatre and television, wrote her first book aged twenty-four.La serie de las siete hermanas no me atraía lo más mínimo, pero resulta que LR había escrito un policial, allá por el año 2006, que, por lo que sea no se atrevió a publicar. Until it is discovered that the Epilim pills Charlie took to control his epilepsy had been replaced by aspirin, a medication Charlie was deadly allergic to – a fact that was well known among the staff and pupils of St Stephen’s. I’ve loved Lucinda Riley’s work for over ten years now, so the opportunity to read a new book from this treasured author in wake on her loss last year was very much appreciated on my part.
The author entwined excellently the suspects and their connections with the past and what motive each could have with the murders!

Jazmine Hunter is one of the best detectives and we follow both her progress with the crimes and also her personal life. I liked David and his bond with his son Rory, and I was sad about how unworthy his ex-wife was, but at least in books, karma makes its appearance and I hope David's future is brighter than the present!Planowała do niej powrócić, zredagować na nowo, ba, planowała rozpocząć nowy kryminalny cykl, jak tylko zakończy serię Siedmiu Sióstr.

Jazz has her own private reasons for stepping away from her police career in London, and reluctantly agrees to front the investigation as a favour to her old boss.

Reunited with her loyal sergeant Alastair Miles, she enters the closed world of the school, and as Jazz begins to probe the circumstances surrounding Charlie Cavendish’s tragic death, events are soon to take another troubling turn. Then, reaching carefully for the two white tablets placed on the boy's locker every night and replacing them with identical ones, the figure turned, switched off the light and left the room.
Jazmine (Jazz) Hunter was formerly a DI in the Met but after her husband, also a DI cheated on her she filed for divorce, handed in her resignation and fled overseas. Lo mejor es que la autora nos lo relata todo muy bien, de forma convencional pero atrayente, y con personajes muy de carne y hueso.
