Dodie is sharp, cool and every woman would like to be her. Timothy Bold is her best friend. Cassandra is her assistant. Together they embark on a road trip against the clock, to prevent the contributors to an anthology of crime stories from winding up dead. They’ll be attacked by monsters in mansions, phantoms, automatons and cultists in the countryside! They are soon to be victims in their own macabre murder story… As Dodie is one of those writers, she has a vested interest in getting it right this time.
