INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

The #1 New York Times bestselling author of the “claustrophobic spine-tingler” (People) One by One returns with an unputdownable mystery following a woman on the search for answers a decade after her friend’s murder.

April Clarke-Cliveden was the first person Hannah Jones met at Oxford.

Vivacious, bright, occasionally vicious, and the ultimate It girl, she quickly pulled Hannah into her dazzling orbit. Together, they developed a group of devoted and inseparable friends—Will, Hugh, Ryan, and Emily—during their first term. By the end of the year, April was dead.

Now, a decade later, Hannah and Will are expecting their first child, and the man convicted of killing April, former Oxford porter John Neville, has died in prison. Relieved to have finally put the past behind her, Hannah’s world is rocked when a young journalist comes knocking and presents new evidence that Neville may have been innocent. As Hannah reconnects with old friends and delves deeper into the mystery of April’s death, she realizes that the friends she thought she knew all have something to hide…including a murder.

“The Agatha Christie of our generation” (David Baldacci, #1 New York Times bestselling author) proves once again that she is “as ingenious and indefatigable as the Queen of Crime” (The Washington Post) with this propulsive murder mystery that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Kept Me Guessing

You read widely enough, there are not many books where you can’t figure things out at some point. This was one where I kept changing my mind about “who done it” and was pleasantly surprised (and irked with myself) to discover I was wrong. In fairness, the clues were pretty subtle, as they should be in a mystery novel—good authors are good at the slight-of-hand. You can decide if they were too subtle. I’m on the fence. But it was entertaining.

Great read

It had the right amount of suspense and story line to keep me reading. I would recommend this book.

Not my Favorite

Couldn’t help but compare to Ruth’s other books that I recently read and gave 5 stars to - “The Turn of the Key” and “The Death of Mrs. Westaway”. Where these 2 books were rapid reads and I loved the way the characters interacted and was intrigued by the plot. This one - I guess I didn’t much care for April. She seemed entitled, mean and shallow. There was a lot of Before and After chapters and I just didn’t find it as interesting as it plodded along. I figure out the killer early on as well so it wasn’t as surprising for me. Still a great author and I look forward to reading more of her writing.
