The Zig Zag Girl

Staff Review: The Zig Zag Girl

"The Zig Zag Girl" by Elly Griffiths

Cover: 'The Zig Zag Girl'

When the body of a girl, cut into three, is found in Brighton by Detective Inspector Edgar Stephens, his first thought is the popular magic trick called the Zig Zag Girl. His next thought is of an old friend he served with in the war, Max Mephisto, who was the inventor of the famous trick. When the two combine forces to solve the murder, the clues seem to point to their past. Set in 1950's Brighton, this a new series by the beloved author of the Ruth Galloway mysteries (which I highly recommend). Although I typically do not enjoy historical fiction, or novels with male protagonists, I still greatly enjoyed this novel and am really looking forward to the rest in the series!
