The Murder Game : A new must-read thriller from the bestselling author of 'AND SO IT BEGINS' Hardback



The thrilling new #1 bestseller from the 'Queen of twisted suspense.'We were all there that day.

Now one of us is dead... The first time Jemma and Matt were invited to Polskirrin - Lucas Jarrett's imposing ocean-view home - it was for an intimate wedding that ended in tragedy.

Jemma will never forget the sight of the girl's body floating towards the rocky shore.

Now, exactly one year later, Lucas has invited his guests back for a macabre anniversary. But what Lucas has in store for them is nothing like a candlelight vigil.

Someone who was there that night remembers more than they'll admit to, and Lucas has devised a game to make them tell the truth. Jemma believes she and Matt know nothing about what happened... but what if she's wrong? Before you play a deadly game, make sure you can pay the price... A compulsive psychological thriller in a stunning setting that will have you gripped until the last page.

Perfect for fans of The Hunting Party and The Holiday.
