Content descriptions

General Note: "An Arcade CrimeWise Book."
Summary, etc.: "Murder on the Orient Express meets The Last Time I Lied in this gripping thriller set in a remote Scottish mansion. In 1995, six university students moved into the house at 215 Caldwell Street. Months later, one of them was found dead on the sofa the morning after their end-of-year party. His death was ruled an accident by the police. The remaining five all knew it wasn't, and though they went on with their lives, the truth of what happened to their sixth housemate couldn't stay buried forever. Twenty years later, all five of them arrive-lured separately under various pretenses-at Wolfheather House, a crumbling, secluded mansion on the Scottish Isle of Doon. Trapped inside with no way out and no signal to the outside world, the now forty-somethings fight each other-and the unknown mastermind behind their gathering-as they confront the role they played in their housemate's death. They are given one choice: confess to their crimes or die. They Did Bad Things is a deviously clever psychological thriller about the banality of evil and the human capacity for committing horror"--

    In a dingy house at 215 Caldwell Street, near a British university, six students grow far too close. Caldwell Street, one resident informs us, has a way of amplifying faults and feelings. The house becomes a party zone where quiet, awkward Maeve tries to fit in while never quite making it past square-peg status, and alpha-housemate Oliver rules all; the others fit in between in various dysfunctional habits. Years later, five of the six reunite unexpectedly when they are fooled into a meeting at the decrepit Wolfheather House on the Scottish isle of Doon. The other member of the gang, Callum, isn't there because, as readers slowly come to understand, something terrible happened to him all those years ago, and his housemates have been concealing the truth ever since. Forry keeps readers on edge while giving them a bird's-eye view, through multiple narrators and flashbacks, of what happened back then and who is killing off the housemates so efficiently now. The solution to the past and present mysteries involves a well-executed twist. This is one for fans of Lucy Foley's The Hunting Party (2019). Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
