This was really good! I have heard a lot about this author during the past couple of years and have wanted to give his books a try, so I was excited to pick this one up. I was almost instantly drawn into this story as it was told to us by our narrator, Elliot. I did not see the twists and turns coming in this book and I loved that it kept me guessing until the very end. I found this to be a very entertaining read.

Elliot is part of a group of people spending some time at a friend’s house on a Greek Island. We learn a lot about each of these characters. I felt a sense of dread as I worked my way through this story because I knew that things were going to go sideways but I had no idea exactly what would happen. The story does meander at times but once I hit the mid-point, I did not want to stop reading.

I listened to the audiobook and thought that the narrator was simply outstanding, which only added to my enjoyment of the story. Alex Jennings is a narrator that is new to me but I was very impressed by his performance. He did a fantastic job of bringing this colorful cast of characters to life which helped to pull me into the story. I found his voice to be very pleasant and I found myself wanting to listen to this book for hours at a time.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this book to others. I had a great time trying to figure out this mystery and I was rather surprised by some of the turns the story took. I hope to pick up more of this talented author’s work very soon.

I received a digital review copy of this book from Celadon Books and Macmillan Audio.
