From the author of The Cut and one half of Ambrose Parry comes a brilliant new thriller. Chris Brookmyre is back with The Cliff House, where a secret-infused hen weekend becomes deadly.
Jen’s hen party is going to be out of control…
She’s rented a luxury getaway on its own private island. The helicopter won’t be back for seventy-two hours. They are alone. They think.
As well as Jen, there’s the pop diva and the estranged ex-bandmate, the tennis pro and the fashion guru, the embittered ex-sister-in-law and the mouthy future sister-in-law.
It’s a combustible cocktail, one that takes little time to ignite, and in the midst of the drunken chaos, one of them disappears. Then a message tells them that unless someone confesses her terrible secret to the others, their missing friend will be killed.
Problem is, everybody has a secret. And nobody wants to tell.
For any fans of Lucy Foley and Richard Osman, this is one not to miss! Chris has become a friend of the bookshop over the years, signing copies of his books, and it’s wonderful we can finally invite him for an event in our Autumn Literary Festival.
