Diana Peterfreund is the author of 13 books for adults, teens, and children, including the Secret Society Girl series, the Killer Unicorn series, For Darkness Shows the Stars, and Omega City. Her books have been named in Amazon’s Best Books of the Year. In the Hall with the Knife (Amulet Books) is the first installment of Diana Peterfreund’s YA trilogy based on the board game CLUE! There’s a storm, an elite prep school nestled in the woods of Maine and a death — and everybody is hiding something. The case starts with a motley crew of students stranded on campus with their headmaster. Hours later, his body is found in the conservatory and it’s very clear his death was no accident. With this group of students nothing is as it seems and everyone has a motive for murder. Fans of the CLUE board game and cult classic film will delight in Peterfreund’s modern reimagining of the brand, its characters, and the dark, magnificent old mansion with secrets hidden within its walls. Kirkus noted that “Fans of CLUE and murder-mystery aficionados are equally well served . . . Ingeniously plotted and vastly entertaining.”
