Foley's (The Book of Lost and Found) latest title features a group of old friends who travel to the Scottish Highlands over New Year's and are trapped by a blizzard. One guest dies, though listeners are kept guessing which one it is until the very end. Practically everyone there—including the caretaker, Heather, and groundskeeper Doug—has at least one dark secret, all of which are revealed in this neatly plotted, fast-paced locked-room mystery. Readers Gary Furlong, Elle Newlands, Morag Sims, Imogen Church, and Moira Quirk handle the shifting points of view with aplomb, easily navigating dramatic emotional shifts and ramping up the tension.
VERDICT Recommend to listeners who loved Ruth Ware's In a Dark, Dark Wood or other character-driven suspense. ["Agatha Christie fans will shiver as they imagine themselves in snow-covered woods, silence amplifying their fear of not knowing…who might be next to die": LJ Xpress Reviews 1/25/19 review of the Harper hc.]
