The Hunting Party by Lucy Foley



Bristling with tension, bitter rivalries, and toxic friendships, get ready for the most hotly-anticipated thriller of 2019.

In a remote hunting lodge, deep in the Scottish wilderness, old friends gather for New Year.

The beautiful one
The golden couple
The volatile one
The new parents
The quiet one
The city boy
The outsider

The victim.

Not an accident – a murder among friends.


My Review

A locked room mystery that will send shivers down your spine for more reasons than one!

Alternating between characters this is a murder mystery that draws you in and sweeps you away to the remote snowy Scottish highlands. This is one book I would recommend reading with a hot water bottle and a huge mug of hot chocolate, ideally one with cream and marshmallows!

The whole book is seeped in atmosphere, so much so that the cold permeates right the way through chilling you to the bone. Filled with some brilliantly created characters who are all memorable in their own ways and a great deal of them not particularly likeable. Flawed, some relatable, some endearing and some down right disturbed! The phrase ‘bunny boiler’ applies to this book perfectly!

As the group get together for their annual new years getaway over the course of the weekend old secrets begin to resurface, their shared past taking on a different light and new secrets threaten to ruin what should have been an unforgettable reunion.

It certainly will be unforgettable, just not for the right reasons!

This is a brilliant classic whodunit that is as entertaining as it is memorable, where things are not always as they seem. This is one not to be missed.

The Hunting Party is out now and can be purchased now for only £0.99 from Amazon
