Un grande thriller
Uno sconosciuto a tavola.
Potrebbe essere la sua ultima cena.
Charlie e Matthew sono sposati, hanno un figlio, Titus, abitano a Londra e la loro vita non potrebbe essere più felice. O almeno così sembra.
Una delle attività preferite di Matthew è discutere dei libri che legge, cosa che lo ha spinto a creare anche un bookclub.
Un giorno, in libreria, i due conoscono Rachel: si è appena trasferita in città, e Matthew di impulso la invita a unirsi al loro club. Charlie non è d’accordo, ma ormai la proposta è fatta, e Rachel ha accettato.
Una sera accade l’impensabile, e quella che doveva essere una normale cena si trasforma in un vero e proprio incubo: Titus è scioccato e immobile, Matthew giace riverso sul tavolo in un lago di sangue e Charlie fissa sconvolto Rachel, che sta chiamando la polizia con ancora in mano il coltello insanguinato…

THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER
‘Immensely gripping…Stayed up till past 2am to finish this’ Sophie Hannah
Four people walked into the dining room that night. One would never leave.
Matthew: the perfect husband.
Titus: the perfect son.
Charlie: the perfect illusion.
Rachel: the perfect stranger.
Charlie didn’t want her at the book club. Matthew wouldn’t listen.
And that’s how Charlie finds himself slumped beside his husband’s body, their son sitting silently at the dinner table, while Rachel calls 999, the bloody knife still gripped in her hand.
Classic crime meets Donna Tartt in this nerve-shredding domestic noir thriller that weaves a sprawling web of secrets around an opulent West London world and the dinner that ends in death.
