I've just finished reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and I'm afraid I've got a murder to report. I won't give away the plot and I won't even tell you who was murdered by the author J.K Rowling.
However I can tell you this:
Some way into the book a character is killed off. I know you are thinking: "so what, it's the last book, you've got to expect someone to die". That is very true, but the character that died was killed (murdered) by the author purely to stop the reader finding out the plot!
This character was one of Harry's friends, loyal and steadfast to the end. They did not deserve to die at the hand of the author. Miss Rowling and I know of whom I am referring and I hope she can sleep at night.
