#MurderEveryMonday: Mysteries with "April", "Fool", or Pranks

Murder Every Monday
was created by Kate @ Crossexamining Crime and @ArmchairSleuth. Put simply, the plan is for readers to take a photo of a crime fiction book (novel or short story collection) which meets a given week’s theme criteria and to then share it online, using the hashtag #MurderEveryMonday.

This week's theme is:

Crime fiction which includes the words ‘April’ or ‘Fool’ in the title or cover which shows a joke or a prank

The first book has both "April" and Fool" in the title, while the second has only the "Fool". But the third has neither of words nor the cover showing a prank. However, a prank is in the plot - a prank gone wrong, which becomes the method of the murder.

Have your read any of them? Which cover(s) do you like most?

If you want to participate, here's the list of the weekly theme:


  1. The Christie is a great choice. I completely forgot about that one.

  2. Love your theme for this week's post! Very fun. And Happy April Fool's Day! :D

  3. I haven't read Christopher Bush yet but I am fond of the other two!
