Summary

*** THE INSTANT SUNDAY TIMES AND NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE SILENT PATIENT ***


'Infinitely thrilling and delicately crafted, the plot keeps everyone guessing until the very end, with an unscrupulous villain to underline just how good it is. DO NOT MISS IT' Daily Mail


******


It begins with a phone call. And it ends with a murder . . .


Seven friends gather on an idyllic Greek island.


Among them: the actress, the playwright, the housekeeper, the second husband and the wayward son.


There’s jealousy, betrayal, unrequited love, a handful of secrets and too many lies.


Thirty-six hours after they arrive one of them will be dead.


You’ll never guess who. You’ll never guess why.
