A suspense filled story of friendship, obsession that kept me guessing until the end !
EVERYONE'S INVITED. EVERYONE'S A SUSPECT. Bristling with tension, bitter rivalries, and toxic friendships, get ready for the most hotly-anticipated thriller of 2019.
In a remote hunting lodge, deep in the Scottish wilderness, old friends gather for New Year. The beautiful one! The golden couple, The volatile one! The new parents, the quiet one!, the city boy! The outsider The victim. Not an accident - a murder among friends.
Set in the Scottish highlands at an exclusive lodge where Heather,Doug and Ian work. At New Year's Eve 2018, a group of friends arrive for their annual break together. The events of the weekend are recounted by Miranda, Emma, Katie, Heather and Doug. Heather and Doug both are working in the highlands to escape their pasts. The book is set over a few days but there is such a lot packed into this time.
I listened to this book via Audible and I loved how the events were retold by the main characters in the story. The five narrators were great and easy to listen too and made the characters come to life, which is really important in an audio book. The narration can make or break a book for me.
It is quickly discovered in the book that most of the people, guests and staff at the lodge have secrets and these secrets begin to be uncovered after a guest goes missing and a then body is discovered.
The book is cleverly plotted and the narration allows the reader to get to know all the characters in detail and also their histories which is an important factor in this book. I loved how the author leads you towards a conclusion only to completely turn when you think you know who did it !
A great mystery in a great setting , you may look at your own friends differently after reading this.
