"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.

 

我最喜歡的那種偵探,讓我一直在猜測,讓人想起阿嘉莎·克里斯蒂的最佳狀態--再加上酸劑。” –亞歷克斯·麥克德斯,《紐約時報》第一暢銷書《緘默的病人》的作者。
 
瑞絲·薇斯朋讀書俱樂部挑選的《The Guest List》作者
 
每個人都被邀請了…每個人都是嫌疑人…
 
在聖誕節假期的慵懶日子裡,一群來自牛津的30多歲的朋友聚在一起迎接新年,這是他們十年前仍是學生時開始的傳統。為了這個假期,他們選擇了蘇格蘭高地一個田園詩般的偏僻莊園--這是一個完美的地方,可以讓他們出去放鬆一下。
 
旅程開始得很天真:欣賞令人驚嘆但不祥的風景,在劈啪作響的火爐前喝香檳,回憶過去。但十年後,秘密怨恨的重量加大,以至於該組織微弱的懷舊情緒無法承受。在新年前夕的喧鬧狂歡中,將他們繫在一起的繩索斷裂,就像一場歷史性的暴風雪將小屋與外界隔絕。
