Publisher Description

REESE'S BOOK CLUB PICK | A New York Times bestseller!

“An eerie, atmospheric novel that had me completely on the edge of my seat.” Reese Witherspoon

“This spine-tingling, atmospheric thriller has it all… and twists you’ll never see coming.” —Richard Osman, New York Times bestselling author of The Thursday Murder Club

Sarah Pearse's next book, The Retreat, is forthcoming.

You won't want to leave. . . until you can't.


Half-hidden by forest and overshadowed by threatening peaks, Le Sommet has always been a sinister place. Long plagued by troubling rumors, the former abandoned sanatorium has since been renovated into a five-star minimalist hotel.

An imposing, isolated getaway spot high up in the Swiss Alps is the last place Elin Warner wants to be. But Elin's taken time off from her job as a detective, so when her estranged brother, Isaac, and his fiancée, Laure, invite her to celebrate their engagement at the hotel, Elin really has no reason not to accept.

Arriving in the midst of a threatening storm, Elin immediately feels on edge--there's something about the hotel that makes her nervous. And when they wake the following morning to discover Laure is missing, Elin must trust her instincts if they hope to find her. With the storm closing off all access to the hotel, the longer Laure stays missing, the more the remaining guests start to panic.

Elin is under pressure to find Laure, but no one has realized yet that another woman has gone missing. And she's the only one who could have warned them just how much danger they are all in. . .

Whispering reader

The story itself is interesting but I wish I would have chosen to purchase the actual book rather than the audiobook. The reader seems to whisper the last word of each sentence and sounds “breathy” when reading. I find myself distracted and annoyed by it more often than not.

Fast forward

I wanted to find out what happens so that was good, I just wanted to find it out quicker. Story dragged out too much for me.

Ok

I did not love this book. It felt a bit too long and I found myself bored.
