Written by Benjamin Stevenson

Narrated by Barton Welch

Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars



About this audiobook

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.

“A witty twist on classic whodunits… Stevenson not only 'plays fair,' he plays the mystery game very, very well.” -- Maureen Corrigan, Washington Post

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.


My brother

My stepsister

My wife

My father

My mother

My sister-in-law

My uncle

My stepfather

My aunt


Editor's Note

Play on cozy whodunnits…

With a title like “Everyone in My Family Has Killed Someone” (also the novel’s opening line), it’s no surprise that Stevenson’s latest is delightfully cheeky and intriguing. A self-referential play on cozy whodunnits, it follows Ernie Cunningham and his untrustworthy family, all reuniting at a remote ski resort. The first body drops quickly, and the plot develops via Ernie’s detective work. HBO has already acquired the rights to this entertaining mystery, making it a must-read before the series premieres.
