A REESE'S BOOK CLUB PICK

THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

ONE OF THE NEW YORK TIMES BEST THRILLERS OF 2020

“I loved this book. It gave me the same waves of happiness I get from curling up with a classic Christie...The alternating points of view keep you guessing, and guessing wrong.” — Alex Michaelides, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Silent Patient

"Evok[es] the great Agatha Christie classics…Pay close attention to seemingly throwaway details about the characters’ pasts. They are all clues.” -- New York Times Book Review

A wedding celebration turns dark and deadly in this deliciously wicked and atmospheric thriller reminiscent of Agatha Christie from the New York Times bestselling author of The Hunting Party.

The bride – The plus one – The best man – The wedding planner  – The bridesmaid – The body

On an island off the coast of Ireland, guests gather to celebrate two people joining their lives together as one. The groom: handsome and charming, a rising television star. The bride: smart and ambitious, a magazine publisher. It’s a wedding for a magazine, or for a celebrity: the designer dress, the remote location, the luxe party favors, the boutique whiskey. The cell phone service may be spotty and the waves may be rough, but every detail has been expertly planned and will be expertly executed.

But perfection is for plans, and people are all too human. As the champagne is popped and the festivities begin, resentments and petty jealousies begin to mingle with the reminiscences and well wishes. The groomsmen begin the drinking game from their school days. The bridesmaid not-so-accidentally ruins her dress. The bride’s oldest (male) friend gives an uncomfortably caring toast.

And then someone turns up dead. Who didn’t wish the happy couple well? And perhaps more important, why?

An entertaining read
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden aus Wallisellen am 04.02.2021
Bewertet: Format: eBook (ePUB)

Goodreads has this (by far) as the most read and best crime fiction in 2020. Yes, by all means, it is a good read and you certainly want to finish it but is it the best? Granted, I haven't read any of the others so perhaps I should do that before giving a review so ... if you are looking for a good, entertaining read, go for i...

Young adult mystery
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden aus Seelisberg am 19.01.2021

The mystery, the building up of the thrill is all very good. But I found the characters very dull, all millennials in different degrees of success in life, from the aggressive owner lady of the online magazine to the soft couple parents of two young children, all with their so predictable conflicts and still remembering uni day... The mystery, the building up of the thrill is all very good. But I found the characters very dull, all millennials in different degrees of success in life, from the aggressive owner lady of the online magazine to the soft couple parents of two young children, all with their so predictable conflicts and still remembering uni days with their aggressive rituals. It was hard to swallow for someone who, being a baby boomer, has read a lot of mysteries and has had enough of this new generation of ‘knowing alls’ who thinks we are dispensable.

Bemühend
von Thomas Zingg aus Zürich am 05.10.2020
Bewertet: Einband: Taschenbuch

Die Figuren sind aus meiner Sicht weitgehend unglaubwürdig. Die häufigen Anspielungen an das böse Omen sind müssig und eben irgendwann bemühend. Richtig ist jedoch, dass es bis zuletzt dauert ehe sich die Geschichte offenbart.
