Everyone in My Family Has Killed Someone is a modern rendition of the classic "Golden Age" mystery. Remincent of Agatha Christie, with a healthy mix of Knives Out, this novel is a perfectly witty family drama. When a man shows up dead at the resort hosting their family reunion, our narrator Ernie, follows all the rules of the genre to unfold the story of a serial killer with deep connections to his family.— Zoe
“This is the best mystery I’ve read. The narrator understood that just because he was telling the story, it didn’t make the story about him. Every member of this family was given a story arc that also directly connected to the whole! So good!”
— Hannah Oxley, Mystery to Me, Madison, WI
Knives Out and Clue meet Agatha Christie and The Thursday Murder Club in this "utterly original" (Jane Harper), "not to be missed" (Karin Slaughter), fiendishly clever blend of classic and modern murder mystery.
Everyone in my family has killed someone. Some of us, the high achievers, have killed more than once. I'm not trying to be dramatic, but it is the truth. Some of us are good, others are bad, and some just unfortunate.
I'm Ernest Cunningham. Call me Ern or Ernie. I wish I'd killed whoever decided our family reunion should be at a ski resort, but it's a little more complicated than that.
Have I killed someone? Yes. I have.
Who was it?
Let's get started.
