From the publishers:

Set in an isolated former hunting lodge in the Scottish Highlands, Death Knell follows Henry Roth, a famous playwright and his wife, Evelyn, as they await the arrival of his new ‘muse’ – a charming and charismatic young actor called Jack Willoughby who is determined to secure a role in the playwright’s latest production.

What starts out as a seemingly innocent audition soon leads to an evening full of twists, turns and eventually … murder.

Mixing black comedy and shocks of the highest order, Death Knell reinvents the classic thriller genre and will leave the audience breathless and beguiled right up to the final curtain.

James Cawood was educated at Gordonstoun School, Scotland and trained as an actor at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. As an actor he has worked throughout the UK, Europe and the USA. As a playwright he has written a number of short comedies and thrillers that have received productions in London and throughout the UK. Recently his psychedelic adaptation of Jekyll and Hyde toured Austria and Italy and his thriller Stone Cold Murder has been produced in Germany, Austria and the UK and has recently been translated and published in German.
