The third book in the The Times-bestselling murder mystery series, by leading TV/radio comedian Ian Moore! Perfect for fans of Richard Osman, Julia Chapman, or MC Beaton


'Cosy, quirky and wry, but most of all, hilariously funny!'
JANICE HALLETT, bestselling author of The Appeal


Richard Ainsworth's French B&B has been taken over by a production company shooting a historical film at the Château de Valençay. But everything grinds to a halt with the sudden passing of an actor under suspicious circumstances.


To get to the bottom of things, Valérie Dorçay and Richard offer catering services to the hastily resumed production. There they discover that the vanity, duplicity and murder of an 18th century French court is nothing compared to that of a 21st century film set, with more heads yet to roll.



‘What a terrific read! Reading it felt like being sat outside a rural French cafe, the sun warm on my neck and a smell of baking baguettes in the air'
J. M. HALL, author of A Spoonful of Murder


‘Death at the Chateau combined all my favourite bits of cosy mysteries; great characters, chaotic moments and hilarity!’
HANNAH HENDY, author of The Dinner Lady Detectives


‘Ian Moore's trademark, witty style had me laughing one moment and trying to pick over the clues in forensic detail the next'
JAMIE WEST, author of Death on the Pier
