Publisher Description

Keep your secrets. Tell your lies. The gripping new psychological thriller from the author of the bestselling The One Who Got Away.
An old castle ...

For more than 150 years, a grand house known as Alden Castle has stood proudly in the rolling hills of California's wine country, home to a family weighed down by secrets and debt.

A fresh body ...

When the castle is sold, billionaire developers move in, only to discover one skeleton after another - including a fresh corpse - rotting in the old family cemetery.

An unsolved mystery ...

As three generations of the well-respected Alden-Stowe family come under scrutiny, police unearth a twisted web of rivalries, alliances, deceit, and treachery.

A gold-digger wife, a demented patriarch, a daughter in the grip of first love ... Who has lied? Who will survive? And who, amidst all the horror and betrayal, is the lucky one?

'The Lucky One will leave you breathlessly turning every page to find out just whodunnit. It's a brilliant novel, and you'll struggle to put it down just until you know who the lucky one is.' Better Reading

The Lucky One

I would have given a fifth star but the story needed the setting of a British Commonwealth country. What bothered me the most were the courtroom scenes. Americans don’t have the “dock” where the accused sit, for instance. We also don’t use the word “brief” in the same sense that British law does. There were other instances of British terms being used, for instance, “nan” for grandma. A little research into American courts and colloquialisms would have helped if the setting is supposedly in America, and I’m amazed that the author’s editors didn’t help out in that respect.
Other than that, it was a tale with a lot of twists and turns which made it a fun read.
