AN INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER!

The twisty new thriller from the New York Times bestselling author of The Couple Next Door and A Stranger in the House

A weekend retreat at a cozy mountain lodge is supposed to be the perfect getaway . . . but when the storm hits, no one is getting away


It's winter in the Catskills and Mitchell's Inn, nestled deep in the woods, is the perfect setting for a relaxing--maybe even romantic--weekend away. It boasts spacious old rooms with huge woodburning fireplaces, a well-stocked wine cellar, and opportunities for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, or just curling up with a good murder mystery.

So when the weather takes a turn for the worse, and a blizzard cuts off the electricity--and all contact with the outside world--the guests settle in for the long haul.

Soon, though, one of the guests turns up dead--it looks like an accident. But when a second guest dies, they start to panic.

Within the snowed-in paradise, something--or someone--is picking off the guests one by one. And there's nothing they can do but hunker down and hope they can survive the storm.

From Publishers Weekly

Jun 25, 2018 – This disappointing thriller from bestseller Lapena (A Stranger in the House) riffs on Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None. A small group of people arrive for the weekend at Mitchell's Inn, deep in the snowy Catskills, where they hope to enjoy the seclusion and natural beauty of the mountains. The first evening, a young woman, Dana Hart, is found dead at the bottom of the stairs. To lawyer David Paley, it doesn't look like an accident, and he suspects Dana's fianc , Matthew Hutchinson. The problem is that there's a winter storm raging, and the inn is without power and a generator. Since they can't contact the police, the guests settle in for a long wait, and the presence of a dead body only exacerbates the mounting tensions. Each guest is hiding a dark secret, and as the secrets are revealed and accusations are hurled, the body count rises, and it seems that no one is safe. The pace picks up in the third act, but it's not enough to save a narrative populated with emotionally distant characters and paint-by-the-numbers murders.

Customer Reviews

GOOD READ

Very great book, I really enjoyed the twist in it and the whole story and characters were very good indeed.

Was expecting different

I ended up listening to this book while cleaning. I read the author and figured it would be perfect but I honestly wasn’t pulled into this. It’s definitely a murder mystery but after reading her other two books I was expecting more. Still worth the read and all :)
