The Getaway By Ross Armstrong

The Getaway By Ross Armstrong

One private island. Seven guests. One killer…

The perfect holiday. The perfect murder. The perfect beach read…

Get away from your problems.
Multimillionaire Robert Rathwell and his entourage arrive at their private Greek island. White sand, turquoise water, the perfect place to relax. But this is no ordinary family, and this holiday will be their last.

Get away from your life.
The next morning, a scream shatters their peaceful world. Someone has been murdered, his body arranged to make it look like suicide. Everyone has a motive and, under the burning sun, secrets quickly simmer to the surface.

Get away with murder.
Soon the guests see a darker, more violent side to paradise. Because the Rathwells don’t just own the island; they own the people on it. And they can do whatever they like – maybe even commit murder…

My Thoughts:

This will be a great beach read but for me it was a bit of a let down. It feels very samey to other books I have read. It is a locked room book and a who dun it? I didn’t gel with any of the characters and felt as though the story was a bit slow and drawn out. I did guess who the killer was fairly early on even with the red herrings and the twists. It is a shame as it could of been really good.

I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.

One thought on “The Getaway By Ross Armstrong

  1. That’s one thing that sucks about mysteries.. they can all start to sound the same. I think that’s why we appreciate the unique ones so much.
    Shame you didn’t enjoy it more!
