STAR RATINGS GUIDE

Intrigue and Frenemies and Secrets

THE BIRDICT

🧡 We need a new name for this genre, for authors who plunder the depths of intriguing relationships and expose human fallibility in a big sticky web of misdirection. I speak of the Lisa Jewells, the Liane Moriartys and, yes, the Lucy Clarkes. Because this audiobook was a lot of fab things - more on this below - but it was not a mystery, and thriller doesn’t cover it. Thrillations? Liesological Fiction? It’s a work in progress…

💚 Now, onto our main motion pic. Were I on an aeroplane while listening to this, I would soon be dragged off for not abiding by the “turn off all electronics during takeoff” rule. I could not stop listening. I hung onto every titillating morsel. It’s an intoxicating mix of controversial characters, jealousy, lies and secrets,

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

SQUAWKING THE TALK

🎧 Thoroughly enjoyed this sultry performance by Natalie Simpson and Sofia Zervudachi. Excellent character differentiation and got sucked right into the story.

MAJOR Liane Moriarty vibes. Not complaining.

One of the Girls

THE BLURB

The six of us arrived on that beautiful Greek island dreaming of sun-drenched beaches and blood orange sunsets, ready to lose ourselves in the wild freedom of a weekend away with friends.

On the first night we swam under a blanket of stars.

On the second night the games began on our clifftop terrace.

On the third night the idyll cracked, secrets and lies whispering on the breeze.

And by the final night there was a body on the rocks below . . .

WHO WOULD KILL FOR IT?
