"Alice Feeney is great with TWISTS and TURNS." --Harlan Coben

The NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR of Rock Paper Scissors returns with a locked-room mystery when a family reunion leads to murder in a delightfully twisty and atmospheric thriller, as seen on the TODAY show.

"A dysfunctional family meets Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None with a truly gasp-inducing twist. This is the book you've been looking for." --Catherine Ryan Howard, bestselling author of 56 Days

Daisy Darker was born with a broken heart. Now after years of avoiding each other, Daisy Darker's entire family is assembling for Nana's 80th birthday party in her crumbling gothic house on a tiny tidal island. The family arrives, each of them harboring secrets. When the tide comes in, they will be cut off from the rest of the world for eight hours.

But at the stroke of midnight, as a storm rages, Nana is found dead. And an hour later, the next family member follows...

Trapped on an island where someone is killing them one by one, the Darkers must reckon with their present mystery as well as their past secrets, before the tide goes out and all is revealed. As seen on the TODAY show and picked by Book of the Month, Daisy Darker's family secrets and Alice Feeney's trademark shocking twists will keep readers riveted.

Yes, another fantastic Feeney masterpiece. I started to figure out Daisy’s character early on, but there were enough twists and turns to keep the story interesting. Who doesn’t love a dysfunctional family full of dark secrets, a scary house on a secluded island, a roaring storm, and a murder mystery?! Book #48 in 2023

Alice Feeney…YOU DID IT AGAIN. This book had me guessing the whole way through. I read with an open jaw til the end. Her sneaky little chapter endings always give me a little chuckle, but the whole story was SO SNEAKY! It’s like a murder mystery dinner of guess who, and you’ll be guessing until the very end.

I absolutely did not see the twist coming. My heart started beating faster toward the end of the book and I couldn’t put it down!
