Eight Faces at Three, by Craig Rice

Staff Pick

One corpse, one open window, three stab wounds, and every clock stopped at three. There's also just one suspect--beautiful heiress Holly Inglehart. No one is upset that evil aunt Alexandria bought it, so it would be nice to keep Holly out of jail. Craig Rice's delightful 1939 mystery combines a twisted brain-teaser with the rat-tat-tat pace and snappy dialogue of It Happened One Night. The crazy cast of characters also imbibe enough booze to float the Titanic. A delicious whodunnit for those who like to solve cases wearing blue silk pajamas and sipping an ice-cold G&T.
