INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
“A claustrophobic spine-tingler.” —People
“Not only do Ware’s novels wink at [Agatha] Christie in a saucy way, but Ware herself is turning out to be as ingenious and indefatigable as the Queen of Crime.” —The Washington Post
The #1 New York Times bestselling 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 luxurious, rustic ski chalet high in the French Alps doesn’t sound like the worst problem in the world. Especially when there’s a breathtaking vista, a full-service chef and housekeeper, a cozy fire to keep you warm, and others to keep you company. Unless that company happens to be eight coworkers…each with something to gain, something to lose, and something to hide.
When the cofounder of Snoop, a trendy London-based tech start-up, organizes a weeklong trip for the team in the French Alps, it starts out as a corporate retreat like any other: PowerPoint presentations and strategy sessions broken up by mandatory bonding on the slopes. But as soon as one shareholder upends the agenda by pushing a lucrative but contentious buyout offer, tensions simmer and loyalties are tested. The storm brewing inside the chalet is no match for the one outside, however, and a devastating avalanche leaves the group cut off from all access to the outside world. Even worse, one Snooper hadn’t made it back from the slopes when the avalanche hit.
As each hour passes without any sign of rescue, panic mounts, the chalet grows colder, and the group dwindles further…one by one.
A great ready! Heart pounding till the end!
This is my 3rd book by Ware. I’ve read The Lying Game & The Woman in Cabin 10. This is best out of the 3. I stayed up till 4 AM reading this because the POVs kept switching and I just had to find out who done it and why! Her writing style is similar to Lisa Foley so you’ll like them both - Different POVs throughout and good twists at the end. There was a twist at the end that I slightly suspected at the beginning, but still caught me by surprise. The narrator is fab! I would recommend this book!
Too predictable & long
It was fairly entertaining at the beginning, but highly predictable and drags on at the end.
One by one
This was fantastic! It started a little slow, but ended up keeping me on the edge of my seat. Though I knew almost right away who dd it, it was still really amazing. I enjoyed the two character narration, the character development, and the heart pounding climax of the story. This is the first Ruth Ware book I have read, but plan to download the others now.
