"Suspenseful, funny, and poignant. The delightful, spirited characters from this witty, sometimes bittersweet story deserve a return engagement."

3 Starred Reviews! We loved this latest one from one of TLB's favorite suspense/thriller authors!

"Especially timely, given that the terror of isolation is at its heart... This is And Then There Were None rendered for the twenty-first century."
--Booklist (starred review)

"Ware does what she does best: Gives us a familiar locked-door mystery setup and lets the tension and suspicion marinate until they reach fever pitch. Another win for Ware... Simply masterful."
