Publisher Review

'Both a classic whodunnit and a very contemporary psychological thriller that left me guessing right to the end - a wonderful read' Kate Mosse 'Great fun. Lucy Foley is really very clever' - Anthony Horowitz 'A very modern Agatha Christie for the new roaring 20s . . . secrets and lies at every turn' Sarah Pinborough 'Whip smart page-turner with skilful characterisation . . . a compelling read' Jane Shemilt 'Sharp and atmospheric and addictive - I tore through it!' Louise Candlish 'I didn't think Lucy Foley could top The Hunting Party, but she did! I loved this book. It gave me the same waves of happiness l get from curling up with a classic Christie' Alex Michaelides 'Nail-biting . . . A fabulous closed room thriller. Lucy Foley is the Agatha Christie for our times' Kate Hamer 'This is a stunningly brilliant book: writing to die for, compelling characters, and a plot driven by a deep-seated sense of unease. I savoured every secret, every twist and turn' Dinah Jefferies 'An inviting tale of deception, buried secrets and suspense. Makes you wonder if you ever really know your friends...'

Will Dean 'A really entertaining, rollicking read that kept me guessing right up to the last page' Simon Kernick 'A twisty, atmospheric and completely compelling closed circle mystery . . . Lucy's deft plotting, pacing, and sharp turns keep the reader guessing right up until the final reveal.

An absolutely brilliant whodunit not to be missed' Ali Land 'I loved The Guest List and gobbled it up in a few sittings . . . A cracking story brilliantly told' Ryan Tubridy
