The Question of Max Summary

The Question of Max by Amanda Cross

Amanda Cross probes into the shadowy past of Cecily Hutchings and her Bloomsbury-like literary circle in The Question of Max, a gripping whodunit from start to end.

Once again, Kate Fansler tries to take a break from her full time career as a literature professor and amateur sleuth. She finds refuge in a rural retreat - the last place she thought her friend Max would come to visit.

When he asks to be driven to the home of a recently deceased family friend Kate can't resist the opportunity to learn more about of one of her literary heroes, Cecily Hutchins. But what starts as a light-hearted trip to the coast of Maine, ends with Kate discovering a body on the rocky shore. A body of one of her students.

Kate takes it upon herself to find out what really happened. Can her own presence at the scene just be a coincidence? And how much can she really trust Max?

Follow amateur sleuth Kate Fansler in this gripping murder mystery series, continuing with No Word From Winifred and A Trap for Fools.

The Question of Max Reviews

No one has a sharper eye than Amanda Cross * Washington Post Book World *
Fascinating complexities . . . humor along the way, and an unexpected shocker of a climax . . . a literate joy * San Francisco Examiner *
Amanda Cross mysteries are the kind one can recommend wholeheartedly, not only to fans of the genre but to people who never usually read mysteries at all * Publishers Weekly *
Kate Fansler is the treasure at the center of all Cross's cerebral puzzles, intelligent, self-doubting, one of those rare people who quote scores of writers unself-conciously and to the point * Newsweek *
