Seven friends. One killer. You can run, but you can’t hide... It’s Boxing Day and your friendship group has planned a hike. You know tensions are running high. You’ve heard the rumours flying around. But this trip is a chance for you to reconnect. As you head into the reserve, everyone is quiet. It almost feels like you’ve imagined the rift. But as the sun sets, you hear a gun shot. One of your group is dead. And someone you know killed them...


This is the second book in a row I’ve read where the central idea is great, and the characters are interesting, but there just seems to be a big lull in the middle. Once the big crime occurred, it was really just a book of following these characters around as they walked through a nature reserve in the dark, either acting suspiciously or thinking about their suspicions. In the end, the mystery reveal and the twist were good, it just felt like it took ages to get there.

Rating: 3 / 5
