What I Tell You Three Times is False

What I Tell You Three Times is False Donald Westlake (Estate)
Pub date 1st January 1987
Original publisher Tor

Sam Holt played TV-detective Jack Packard for five years, and he doesn't want to do it again. Not in a movie, not in dinner theatre, not even in a commercial for the American Cancer Society. But his tough-minded girlfriend has carried the day, and now he’s stuck on an isolated island, hunting clues to a cancer cure alongside Charlie Chan, Miss Marple, and Sherlock Holmes. The script says they’re doomed to failure (translation: Donate money to cancer research). And when a genuine murder crops up, their sleuthing isn’t likely to my much more successful; after all, these folks are not famous detectives, they just play them on TV. But with the cops cut off by a storm and a killer stalking the island, Holt and Co. must play detective for real.
