About the Book:
The New York Times bestselling Queen of Twists returns…with a family reunion that leads to murder.
After years of avoiding each other, Daisy Darker’s entire family is assembling for Nana’s 80th birthday party in Nana’s crumbling gothic house on a tiny tidal island. Finally back together one last time, when the tide comes in, they will be cut off from the rest of the world for eight hours.
The family arrives, each of them harboring secrets. Then at the stroke of midnight, as a storm rages, Nana is found dead. And an hour later, the next family member follows…
Trapped on an island where someone is killing them one by one, the Darkers must reckon with their present mystery as well as their past secrets, before the tide comes in and all is revealed.
With a wicked wink to Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None, Daisy Darker’s unforgettable twists will leave readers reeling.
“The trouble with little white lies is that they sometimes grow up to become big darks ones.”
Wow!! I can promise you will NOT guess the ending of this delightful locked-room thriller. (Is “delightful” even the right word for a thriller?) I had to go back and listen the beginning again after finishing this story.
This book has gotten some mixed reviews but it’s actually my favorite Alice Feeney book so far. Clever, darkly funny and very twisty, I enjoyed every minute of the audiobook. Definitely grab this one if you’re a fan of British thrillers. I would describe this story as spooky and very atmospheric. The narration was perfect!
