Description

THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

“My favorite kind of whodunit, kept me guessing all the way through, and reminiscent of Agatha Christie at her best -- with an extra dose of acid.” -- Alex Michaelides, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Silent Patient

Everyone's invited...everyone's a suspect...

During the languid days of the Christmas break, a group of thirtysomething friends from Oxford meet to welcome in the New Year together, a tradition they began as students ten years ago. For this vacation, they’ve chosen an idyllic and isolated estate in the Scottish Highlands—the perfect place to get away and unwind by themselves.

The trip begins innocently enough: admiring the stunning if foreboding scenery, champagne in front of a crackling fire, and reminiscences about the past. But after a decade, the weight of secret resentments has grown too heavy for the group’s tenuous nostalgia to bear. Amid the boisterous revelry of New Year’s Eve, the cord holding them together snaps, just as a historic blizzard seals the lodge off from the outside world.

Two days later, on New Year’s Day, one of them is dead. . . and another of them did it.

Keep your friends close, the old adage says. But how close is too close?

DON'T BE LEFT OUT. JOIN THE PARTY NOW.

    This was my first Lucy Foley book, but definitely not the last. I enjoyed her style of writing and her character development.

    I read 200 pages thinking it would get better. It didn’t. Dribble. Don’t waste your time.

    It was fast paced, with well developed characters and many twists and turns. I couldn’t put it down.

    I have prided myself on reading books to the end even if my interest wanes. My interest definitely waned reading this novel. It seemed scattered in its plot and was un-engaging at times. Perhaps if same story was told in half as many chapters it would be OK. Disappointing waste of leisure time...
