Summary

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

From the author of the Reese Witherspoon book club pick The Guest List

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.

Booklist Review: "A group of London friends arrive at exclusive Loch Corrin in the Scottish Highlands for a New Year's get-together and find the location a bit too remote it's a mile to the main road, Wi-Fi is unreliable, and, when they get snowed in, things turn frightening. A prologue reveals that a guest has been found dead, and the ensuing chapters switch back and forth between the days leading up to the death and those just after, all the while uncovering the friends' past misdeeds and entanglements. Anyone who's grown apart from old friends will recognize the yearning depicted here to make everything as it was; Foley (The Book of Lost and Found, 2015) tempers the sentimentality with the guests' efforts to best one another and the social clash between them and the workers at the lodge. Readers are left wondering until the end which guest has died as well as who the killer is; they will be well rewarded by the story's ending. A great read-alike for this is Shari Lapena's recent An Unwanted Guest (2018).--Henrietta Verma Copyright 2018 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Historical novelist Foley (The Invitation) makes an auspicious thriller debut. Nine close friends, four of them couples, gather for their extravagant annual New Year's getaway-this time at Loch Corrin, a remote estate in the Scottish Highlands-a decade after most of them graduated from Oxford. Tensions, sexual and otherwise, first flare during the lengthy, alcohol-lubricated train trip from London on December 30, fanned by charismatic, capricious Miranda-the golden girl most men want to be with and more than a few women long to become. At the Loch Corrin station, they're met by Doug, the estate's odd, though hunky, gamekeeper; at Loch Corrin, they encounter unexpected additional guests: a pair of strange Icelandic backpackers. Things start to go seriously wrong with the arrival of a blizzard that will soon cut off the 50,000-acre spread from the outside world. And then one of them disappears. Foley spins her story skillfully through multiple narrators, and if she's less sure-handed with character, this still makes for a cracklingly suspenseful story for a long winter's night.
