Death follows the Cunninghams wherever they go, and a dysfunctional family reunion at an isolated ski resort is no exception. When a dead body is found in the snow, one of their own is immediately suspected. As the investigation unfolds, we explore the complexities of each family member plagued by a deadly misfortune from their past. With the unique perspective of Ern, the black sheep who writes books about how to write books, Everyone in My Family Has Killed Someone is a hilariously meta examination of the murder mystery genre. Every Cunningham has killed someone, but not every Cunningham is a murderer. You’ll have to read to find out who is who.— Miranda
“This is the best mystery I’ve read. The narrator understood that just because he was telling the story, it didn’t make the story about him. Every member of this family was given a story arc that also directly connected to the whole! So good!”
— Hannah Oxley, Mystery to Me, Madison, WI
Knives Out and Clue meet Agatha Christie and The Thursday Murder Club in this "utterly original" (Jane Harper), "not to be missed" (Karin Slaughter), fiendishly clever blend of classic and modern murder mystery.
Everyone in my family has killed someone. Some of us, the high achievers, have killed more than once. I'm not trying to be dramatic, but it is the truth. Some of us are good, others are bad, and some just unfortunate.
I'm Ernest Cunningham. Call me Ern or Ernie. I wish I'd killed whoever decided our family reunion should be at a ski resort, but it's a little more complicated than that.
Have I killed someone? Yes. I have.
Who was it?
Let's get started.
