This is a breathtaking first novel written in the form of three separate crime novels, each set in a different decade and penned in the style of a different giant of the mystery genre. Three complete novels that, taken together, tell a single epic story, about an author whose life is shattered when violence and tragedy consume the people closest to him. It is an ingenious and emotionally powerful debut work.
"Bold, innovative, and thrilling - The Twenty-Year Death crackles with suspense and will keep you up late." (Stephen King) "It's a virtuoso act of literary recreation that's both astonishingly faithful and wildly, audaciously original. One hell of a debut." (James Frey) "The Twenty-Year Death is a bravura debut, ingenious and assured, and a fitting tribute to the trio of illustrious ghosts who are looking - with indulgence, surely - over Ariel Winter's shoulder." (John Bonville)"
