An Invitation to Drink.....or to Die by Sean Sweeney

This is the story of Benedict Morton. He has hired Connor Wood because he is convinced someone in his family is out to kill him and claim their inheritance. He stages a family gathering with Connor as guest of honour. Sure enough by morning Benedict is dead, but which of the siblings did it? It is up to Connor to find out....

This started off with a bang and drew me in immediately. All the guests were locked in and the story tells of the hunt to find the killer. The characters were all solid, with one or two being suitably obvious as to being the killer, or were they red herrings? The pace flowed well, and it was a novella, it was a nice quick read.  The ending was a surprise, due to a few well placed red herrings. A nicely done whodunnit murder novella.
