A reunion of friends leads to murder in a thrilling debut from Ruth Ware.
Nora hasn’t seen Clare in ten years and is shocked when she receives an invitation to her hen do when she hasn’t been invited to the wedding. The party takes a turn for the worst when someone is murdered. Now Nora has to put the pieces of the night back together to figure out what happened.
You can feel the tension between the characters right from the start. And knowing from the start that someone is dead only heightens the intensity.
In her debut novel, Ruth Ware eloquently combines a story of friendship – and the lack thereof – and strong female characters with a thrilling backdrop. It’ll leave you satisfied and hungry for more of her work.
Final say: You’ll be hanging on every word. ★★★★★
