What should be a cozy and fun-filled weekend deep in the English countryside takes a sinister turn in Ruth Ware s suspenseful, compulsive, and darkly twisted psychological thriller.
Leonora, known to some as Lee and others as Nora, is a reclusive crime writer, unwilling to leave her nest of an apartment unless it is absolutely necessary. When a friend she hasn t seen or spoken to in years unexpectedly invites Nora ("Lee""?") to a weekend away in an eerie glass house deep in the English countryside, she reluctantly agrees to make the trip. Forty-eight hours later, she wakes up in a hospital bed injured but alive, with the knowledge that someone is dead. Wondering not what happened? but what have I done?, Nora ("Lee""?") tries to piece together the events of the past weekend. Working to uncover secrets, reveal motives, and find answers, Nora ("Lee""?") must revisit parts of herself that she would much rather leave buried where they belong: in the past.
In the tradition of Paula Hawkins's instant "New York Times" bestseller "The Girl On the Train" and S. J. Watson s riveting national sensation "Before I Go To Sleep," this gripping literary debut from UK novelist Ruth Ware will leave you on the edge of your seat through the very last page."

At the start of Ware’s solid but somewhat derivative first novel, a psychological thriller, crime writer Leonora Shaw leads a solitary life in London but receives an invitation to Northumberland to celebrate the impending marriage of Clare Cavendish, a friend she hasn’t seen in 10 years. Nora and Clare were once inseparable, but something drove them apart. Nora and her sarcastic school chum, Nina da Souza, another invitee, decide to make the trip to the remote cottage known as the Glass House, the site of the hen party weekend. Flashbacks show Nora in the hospital, where she’s recovering from an accident that she can’t quite recall and wonders whose blood is on her hands. From the catty conversations at the party, secrets from Nora and Clare’s past emerge, particularly relating to Nora’s former love, James Cooper. Ware does a competent job ratcheting up the suspense, but the revelations aren’t as exciting as the buildup. Agent: Eve White, Eve White Literary Agency (U.K.). (Aug.)
