It’s difficult to write a review of this book because there are so many spoilers! Half way through reading, I thought I had guessed the direction this book was going. I was SO wrong.
Set aside a day or at least a few hours for this book because it is 100% binge-able. Every time I thought I knew each character, the author proved me very wrong. I even flipped back to re-read certain portions to make sure I hadn’t missed anything. Every character could have been a potential murderer and it was lots of fun to try and figure out who was the guilty party.
The story is set on a Greek island and the author, who is Greek, transported me there while I was reading. I loved reading about visits to exciting and beautiful Mykonos and the atmosphere was captured perfectly.
The twists here totally surprised me and turned me all around. The author truly has a gift for writing thrillers and mysteries and I highly recommend this one. I could not put it down!

About the Book:
A masterfully paced thriller about a reclusive ex–movie star and her famous friends whose spontaneous trip to a private Greek island is upended by a murder ― from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Silent Patient
This is a tale of murder.
Or maybe that’s not quite true. At its heart, it’s a love story, isn’t it?
Lana Farrar is a reclusive ex–movie star and one of the most famous women in the world. Every year, she invites her closest friends to escape the English weather and spend Easter on her idyllic private Greek island.
I tell you this because you may think you know this story. You probably read about it at the time ― it caused a real stir in the tabloids, if you remember. It had all the necessary ingredients for a press sensation: a celebrity; a private island cut off by the wind…and a murder.
We found ourselves trapped there overnight. Our old friendships concealed hatred and a desire for revenge. What followed was a game of cat and mouse ― a battle of wits, full of twists and turns, building to an unforgettable climax. The night ended in violence and death, as one of us was found murdered.
But who am I?
My name is Elliot Chase, and I’m going to tell you a story unlike any you’ve ever heard.
