AND THEN THERE WERE NONE meets THE SANATORIUM by way of EIGHT DETECTIVES in this twisty, up-all-night love letter to mystery thrillers. When legendary author J R Alastor hires struggling events co-ordinator Mila del Angél to host a murder mystery writers’ retreat on his private island, she jumps at the chance. On the guest list are six thriller writers, all masters of the genre. Alastor has told them to expect a week of party games, trope-fuelled riddles and maybe a jump-scare or two. But when one of the guests turns up dead, it seems Alastor’s real plan for the week is much more sinister. With a storm cutting off the island and the body count rising, Mila must work out how to escape a killer who knows literally every trick in the book.
