As the couples and cousins arrive at The Breakers, their sense of having been here before begins to worry them. This is supposed to be a 10th anniversary celebration for Sasha and his wife Kim, but the recognition of the old house leaves them all a bit uneasy. Is someone planning something sinister and who brought them here?
Long ago Sasha celebrated his 16th birthday here and his cousin Peach remembers beginning her life of alcoholism. What else do they remember? They remember two local girls being invited to the party, but no one recalls what happened to them.
After the cousins trashed the house during the birthday party, Sasha’s parents hustled the children out of the spotlight. And as for the kids themselves? They made three vows of silence – “lock it in a box, stitch my lips and go to my grave”.
Has someone engineered this weekend seeking revenge or is it a harmless coincidence? McPherson will keep you guessing throughout the book. This is the first Catriona McPherson book I have read, but it will not be my last.
A spine-tingling mystery.
