The Snowstorm

Tríona Walsh

I thought my best friend’s death must have been an accident. But as I look down at the footprints in the deep snow, I suddenly see the truth: my oldest friends have been lying to me and one of them was the killer… but which one?

I used to be the lucky one: a group of incredible friends, an amazing husband Cillian, and the career I had dreamed of. But then one sleepless night ten years ago everything changed, when my husband died and it tore apart not only my heart but our tight friendship group forever.

Over the years, I’ve lost touch with them, and tried to move on with my life. But when my oldest friend Maura suggests we get the group back together to remember Cillian and celebrate the start of the New Year in the remote Irish island we used to call home, I think maybe it is time for a fresh start after all…

Soon the drinks are flowing and I begin to relax, enjoying being back with the people who once meant everything to me. But as the weather turns into the worst blizzard I’ve ever seen, one of us disappears… and the explosive clue I discover points the finger at someone in this room.

As the power goes out and we become completely cut off from the mainland I suddenly realise that I’m surrounded by people I can’t trust. So I have to face the facts: did one of us do this? Can I find the answers in this raging storm? And if I do, will I be next?

An utterly gripping thriller that will have you hooked from the very first page until the final jaw-dropping, heart-racing twist. Fans of Catherine Cooper, Lucy Foley and Ruth Ware will be glued to the pages of this unmissable locked-room mystery.
