In a world where artistic expression is banned, a series of murders presents a servant girl turned sleuth with a chance to discover her creativity and fulfil her destiny. From author Lou Collins, comes a new amateur sleuth mystery with a dystopian twist for fans of Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple, Umberto Eco’s The Name of the Rose, Midsomer Murders and Death in Paradise. Deadly knowledge. A killer on the loose. She’s ‘maid’ a fatal mistake… As a second-generation servant, the Great Library of Scolaris is the only home Quill has ever known, a place of refuge after her father left town following her mother’s tragic death. Seemingly, her unusual world is perfect. A utopia built on pursuing knowledge for the common good. Every citizen assigned a role, content with their lot. But, when Quill stumbles on a body and her master’s arrested for murder, life turns upside down. Determined to keep her job and a roof over her head, she bravely sets out to clear his name and protect the family they’ve created. Discovering nothing is as perfect as it seems; can she unravel a tangle of cocktail-crazy trophy wives, dense detectives, theft and blackmail to find the truth before it’s too late? And with all that deadly knowledge at her fingertips, will her world ever look the same? If you love luxurious worldbuilding and a twist and turn, everyone’s a suspect whodunit with a one of a kind heroine, oddball suspects and a cunning adversary, you will love The Death of Knowledge.
