Summary
AN INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

The twisty new thriller from the New York Times bestselling author of The Couple Next Door and A Stranger in the House

A weekend retreat at a cozy mountain lodge is supposed to be the perfect getaway . . . but when the storm hits, no one is getting away

It's winter in the Catskills and Mitchell's Inn, nestled deep in the woods, is the perfect setting for a relaxing--maybe even romantic--weekend away. It boasts spacious old rooms with huge woodburning fireplaces, a well-stocked wine cellar, and opportunities for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, or just curling up with a good murder mystery.

So when the weather takes a turn for the worse, and a blizzard cuts off the electricity--and all contact with the outside world--the guests settle in and try to make the best of it.

Soon, though, one of the guests turns up dead--it looks like an accident. But when a second guest dies, they start to panic.

Within the snowed-in paradise, something--or someone--is picking off the guests one by one. And there's nothing they can do but hunker down and hope they can survive the storm--and one another.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "A snowy getaway in the Catskills sounds like just the ticket for a disparate group of travelers, including a single attorney, troubled friends planning a girls' weekend, two couples ready for some romance and another on the brink of a breakup, and a writer looking for some solitude. It all goes awry, however, when an ice storm traps the visitors in Mitchell's Inn, even after one of their numbers dies. Was she murdered? Is someone else next? Nobody knows, and as the electricity and heat shut off, and communication with the outside world becomes impossible, things turn increasingly sinister. This mystery is unusual in that the events leading up to the investigation take many more pages than the investigation itself. While the ending is abrupt, the drawing out of events preceding it is effective, with Lapena (The Couple Next Door , 2016) creating a goosebump-raising atmosphere as the darkness and malevolence stretch on. This compelling and realistic modern take on the country-house mystery will gain new fans for the author and is definitely one to hand to devotees of Agatha Christie (and her modern interpreter, Sophie Hannah).--Henrietta Verma Copyright 2018 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "This disappointing thriller from bestseller Lapena (A Stranger in the House) riffs on Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None. A small group of people arrive for the weekend at Mitchell's Inn, deep in the snowy Catskills, where they hope to enjoy the seclusion and natural beauty of the mountains. The first evening, a young woman, Dana Hart, is found dead at the bottom of the stairs. To lawyer David Paley, it doesn't look like an accident, and he suspects Dana's fiancé, Matthew Hutchinson. The problem is that there's a winter storm raging, and the inn is without power and a generator. Since they can't contact the police, the guests settle in for a long wait, and the presence of a dead body only exacerbates the mounting tensions. Each guest is hiding a dark secret, and as the secrets are revealed and accusations are hurled, the body count rises, and it seems that no one is safe. The pace picks up in the third act, but it's not enough to save a narrative populated with emotionally distant characters and paint-by-the-numbers murders.
