Publisher's Summary

"The Agatha Christie of our generation." (David Baldacci, number one New York Times best-selling author)

"Diabolically clever." (Riley Sager, author of Final Girls)

The number one New York Times best-selling author of The Turn of the Key and In a Dark Dark Wood returns with another suspenseful thriller set on a snow-covered mountain.

Getting snowed in at a beautiful, rustic mountain chalet doesn't sound like the worst problem in the world, especially when there's a breathtaking vista, a cozy fire, and company to keep you warm. But what happens when that company is eight of your coworkers...and you can't trust any of them? 

An off-site company retreat meant to promote mindfulness and collaboration goes utterly wrong when an avalanche hits, the corporate food chain becomes irrelevant and survival trumps togetherness. Come Monday morning, how many members short will the team be?

the narrator

I have enjoyed many books narrated by Imogen Church but am finding that her manner of speech has become exaggerated - and hence distracting from the narrative.

Wrong narrator listed

I like Ruth Ware now despite my savage misgivings about her predictable plots. Turn of the Key changed things for me - really enjoyed that one. This doesn't blow my mind, but it's a fun, easy listen. Imogen Church (seriously Audible, change the narrator back) is a good narrator.

Chapters

I enjoyed most of the story except for a couple of things. I found it very annoying that the beginning of each chapter started not only with the name of the character but the unnecessary and confusing, ‘...Snoop idea...Snoop scribers, 1’. While I am in favour of using the word ‘f*#k’ when appropriate, I found it greatly overused in this story.

Chalet, blizzard, murder. What more could you ask!?

Kudos again to Ruth Ware for not only keeping the Manor House Mystery genre alive, but bringing it to new heights with every new release. This time, those heights reach the French Alps where superbly fleshed-our characters face turmoil most foul while trapped together in a picturesque setting. But the blizzard might not prove to be the biggest danger- maybe what they need to fear is what they brought with them to that mountain. Bravo encore to the inimitable Imogen Church for hitting this one out of the park with her signature immersive narration!
