Everyone's invited...everyone's a suspect...
For fans of Ruth Ware and Tana French, a shivery,
atmospheric, page-turning novel of psychological suspense in
the tradition of Agatha Christie, in which a group of old
college friends are snowed in at a hunting lodge . . . and
murder and mayhem ensue.
All of them are friends. One of them is a killer.
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, theyâ€™ve chosen an idyllic and
isolated estate in the Scottish Highlandsâ€”the perfect place
to get away and unwind by themselves.
They arrive on December 30th, just before a historic
blizzard seals the lodge off from the outside world.
Two days later, on New Yearâ€™s Day, one of them is dead.
The trip began 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
groupâ€™s tenuous nostalgia to bear. Amid the boisterous
revelry of New Yearâ€™s Eve, the cord holding them together snaps.
Now one of them is dead . . . and another of them did it.
Keep your friends close, the old adage goes. But just how
close is too close?
