Additional Notes

From The Publisher*

'Chris Brookmyre is a genius, every new book of his is a cause for celebration' --- RICHARD OSMAN

One hen weekend, seven secrets... but only one worth killing for

Jen's hen party is going to be out of control...

She's rented a luxury getaway on its own private island. The helicopter won't be back for seventy-two hours. They are alone. They think.

As well as Jen, there's the pop diva and the estranged ex-bandmate, the tennis pro and the fashion guru, the embittered ex-sister-in-law and the mouthy future sister-in-law.

It's a combustible cocktail, one that takes little time to ignite, and in the midst of the drunken chaos, one of them disappears. Then a message tells them that unless someone confesses her terrible secret to the others, their missing friend will be killed.

Problem is, everybody has a secret. And nobody wants to tell.


'Strikingly original and definitively Brookmyre - there's nothing he can't do'
Mick Herron

'I recommend The Cut SO HIGHLY! A fast-paced thriller, lovely characters, [and] it kept me guessing'

'A twisty spiralling rabbit hole of a book that draws you deeper with every chapter. Brilliantly original, compulsively readable, right to the final page'
Ruth Ware

'Dark, heartfelt, stylish and thrilling, the kind of wonderfully original tale I just adore. Chris Brookmyre is a storytelling mastermind'
Chris Whitaker

'This is a special novel. A brilliant, original, up-to-the-minute tale with all of the dark, edgy, humorous brilliance we've come to expect from one of the finest crime fiction writers in the world'
Abir Mukherjee
