Book title: The Hunting Party
Author: Lucy Foley
Price: Rs 251
If you have been a fan of the ol’ country house murder mystery, you will not be able to put down this updated glam version. Riveting from word go, you quickly become part of the set of old friends who have journeyed to a remote hunting lodge in the Scottish wilderness, to bring in the new year.
All, of course, is far from hunky dory as we are drawn into the personal worlds of this set of old college friends and their better halves. Amidst bristling tension, bitter rivalries and toxic friendships, there is murder most foul and the killer is, evidently, ‘one among us’. Dripping menace and chills, this one will definitely have you giving your old friends a long hard look! With wonderfully written characters and a twist you would most likely never guess, this page-turner is best started off on the weekend — or then prepare to ‘call in sick’!
