STAR RATINGS GUIDE

Alice Feeney Is A Master of Twists…

THE BIRDICT

💛 Alice Feeney is a master of twists,
Of sinister tales of botanists.
She seeded an island with characters dark,
Then trapped them within a deadly tidemark.
Poisonous secrets deep buried do rise,
And as for the ending, it’s quite the surprise.

💙 Couldn’t help myself. Not even sorry.

💚 Listen to this for the delectably despicable characters, for the modern take on Agatha Christy (I want brownie points for the herculean restraint of not rhyming with twisty) and, of course, for that shock ending.

Big thanks to Macmillan UK Audio and NetGalley for providing me with an ALC in return for an honest review.

SQUAWKING THE TALK

🎧 Such a fun listen. Just pure indulgence. Stephanie Racine once again proves why she is Feeney’s go-to narrator with her silky, sultry delivery.

I was so proud of myself for knowing Trixie was the murderer. Then the final twist rounded the bend and I was totally unprepared. I found it haunting and beautiful and somehow uplifting.

Daisy Darker

THE BLURB

After years of avoiding each other, Daisy Darker’s entire family is assembling for Nana’s 80th birthday party in Nana’s crumbling gothic house on a tiny tidal island. Finally back together one last time, when the tide comes in, they will be cut off from the rest of the world for eight hours.

The family arrives, each of them harboring secrets. Then at the stroke of midnight, as a storm rages, Nana is found dead. And an hour later, the next family member follows…

Trapped on an island where someone is killing them one by one, the Darkers must reckon with their present mystery as well as their past secrets, before the tide comes in and all is revealed.
