Review: Murder Your Darlings

Murder Your Darlings
Murder Your Darlings by J.J. Murphy

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Murder Your Darling, the first Algonquin Round Table Mystery, by J.J. Murphy is an excellent whodunnit staring some of New York's most elite writers of the 1920s. After a prominent drama critic is murdered and left under the famous Algonquin Round Table, it is up to Dorothy Park, Robert Benchley and their witty crew to uncover the real murderer before a young William Faulkner takes the fall for the crime.

The novel is a really fun read, not only because the story is well written, but the witticisms of Parker and Benchley are spot on. While the crime is intriguing, it's the response of the Round Table at ever twist and turn of the mystery that the reader is just waiting to see. Since this is the first in a series of books, I cannot wait to read the rest of them.
