|General Note:|| "A Tom Doherty Associates book"--Title page.
|Summary, etc.:|| "It was supposed to be the trip of a lifetime. Delighted by a surprise invitation, Miriam Macy sails off to a luxurious private island off the coast of Mexico, with six strangers--an ex-cop, a chef, a financial advisor, a nurse, a lawyer, a young widow. Surrounded by miles of open water in the gloriously green Sea of Cortez, Miriam is shocked to discover that she and the rest of her companions have been brought to the remote island under false pretenses--and all seven strangers harbor a secret. Danger lurks in the lush forest and in the halls and bedrooms of the lonely mansion. Sporadic cell-phone coverage and miles of ocean keeps the group trapped in paradise. And strange accidents keep them suspicious of each other, as one by one . . . They all fall down. For fans of thrilling contemporary suspense like The Woman in Cabin 10, Rachel Howzell Hall's brilliant stand-alone novel modernizes and pays homage to Agatha's Christie's And Then There Were None, bringing a diverse cast of seven sinners to a private island for a reckoning that will leave you breathless"-- Provided by publisher.

Miriam Macy is at the end of her rope. Misunderstood by her beloved daughter, suffering panic attacks, and out of work since her employer decided enough was enough, she leaps at the chance to join a reality show on a lavish Mexican-island estate. From the beginning, though, things aren't right. Just making it through airport security as a black woman is a harrowing ordeal, and when Miriam gets to the island, things go rapidly downhill, with guests one by one meeting horrible mischief. Though some of the secondary characters aren't made distinct enough from one another, which may prove confusing, those who give Hall's fifth novel (after City of Saviors, 2017) a try will stick with it for the compelling story and a more diverse set of characters than one typically finds in mysteries. The book is a solid recommendation for patrons looking for something after Fred Van Lente's Ten Dead Comedians (2017). Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
