Day One on the island… Seven strangers journey to Fiji for the holiday of a lifetime. But the unthinkable happens – the plane crashing on a remote island, miles from home, miles from safety.
Day Thirteen on the island… Thrown together in the wreckage of paradise, the list of survivors diminishes. Names of the lost carved into the bark of a tree, one by one.
Day Thirty-three on the island… And with each passing day, with each score on the tree, the tension mounts in the group. Because when it becomes paradise lost, strangers are capable of anything…
IT WAS THE PERFECT MURDER.
I love a Lucy Clarke book and this has to be my absolute favourite one of her books so far, they way Lucy writes the end of a chapter leaves you hanging, so you feel as though you just have to keep reading on within a couple of hours I had finished the book. I found it tense and unsettling and I didn’t know who to trust. I imagined all sorts of things happening, but what does happen will shock you to the core. There are plenty of twists and turns that make for a truly gripping read, one that you will not want to put down until the very end.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
From the outside she looks like any other thirty-three-year-old woman, with a gorgeous house and beautiful daughter.
But when Beth receives a threatening text message from an anonymous number on the way to her surprise birthday party, she knows her time is up.
Enjoy your birthday, Beth. It’ll be your last.
Beth has a secret that has haunted her past for as long as she can remember. A secret that only those closest to her know. A stranger died once… because of Beth.
As she arrives at her house, there’s only one thing she knows for certain, someone at the party wants her to pay.
This is a really good, keep you guessing kind of read. It is well paced that makes you want to keep reading until the end. Thinking I knew early on was a big mistake in my eyes, you won’t be prepared to find out who it actually is. Everyone is actually suspiciously and everyone is a suspect but who is it really? I was gripped from the first page and was shocked by the ending to this chilly and tense story.

When Zoe meets Dan, he’s everything she is looking for in a man – intelligent, charming, supportive.
It’s only after they’re married that she realises that he’s controlling, aggressive, paranoid.
And there’s no way out.
Or is there?
Zoe knows she has to escape, but Dan’s found her once before, and she knows he can find her again.
But Dan has plans of his own. Plans that don’t necessarily include Zoe.
Be careful who you trust . . .
I was intrigued after reading the blurb for this book, it sounded gripping and it didn’t disappoint. I found it tense and a dark read. The two main characters are Dan and his wife Zoe, he is a very controlling husband and paranoid too. This book is full of twists, you think it is going one way and then something completely different happens. I couldn’t believe how hooked I was and how involved I felt. I definitely want to read more by this author.
