Real Town Murders

By Adam Roberts | May 19, 2017
Categories: Book News

RTown2017

Cover reveal: book comes out 24th August. It's part locked-room puzzle-whodunit, part SF/Hitchockian thriller, and part literary-pretentious meditation on location, gender, bodies and death. So, that's three parts; but you get all three for one low, low price!

    I see this in the amazon.uk store but not amazon.com. Any chance it will be made available in the U.S.? I thought about the Kindle version but amazon.uk Kindle books are not downloadable in the U.S.

    That's a delicious cover--a bit of the same vibe as the UK cover for Connie Willis's Crosstalk. As far as getting a copy in the States goes, I ended up getting The Thing Itself through AbeBooks. I suspect I'll do the same with this new delight.

    It just showed up on Amazon.com, hard copy and ebook:

    And the US site adds something the UK site didn't mention: this is book 1 of 2 in the series!
