Liar's Beach

By Katie Cotugno

Coming 05.02.23

A fresh new take on Agatha Christie’s classic murder mystery The Mysterious Affair at Styles, with iconic detective Hercule Poirot recast as a brilliant, brash teen girl named Holiday, and narrated by her childhood friend Linden, an athlete-scholar who fits right in at his elite New England prep school—all the while hiding some secrets of his own.

In the aspirational world of Martha’s Vineyard, prep-school kid Linden joins his roommate, Jasper, and several of their friends for the last weeks of summer. There we meet Jasper’s sister Eliza, her friend Meredith, and Meredith’s nemesis Aidy, and of course our very own Poirot: Holiday, the one person on the island who knows the truth about Linden.

But when Jasper’s enemy, Greg, is found lying facedown in the pool, the only question is . . . who did it?
