"A terrific family drama. I adored it--absolutely compulsive reading as all the family skeletons are clamouring to get out of the cupboard. I inhaled this book over twenty-four hours."
-- LIZ NUGENT, international bestselling author of Strange Sally Diamond and Little Cruelties
"What a mad delight this book is--so seductive and twisted. Highly recommended!"
-- SHARI LAPENA, New York Times bestselling author of Not a Happy Family
"Tense and twisting, with a sophistication that belies its darkness, A Death at the Party is much like the hostess of the titular party at its core: elegant and beautiful but hiding so many secrets. Prepare to be captivated by this masterful and shocking collision of past and present and the lies that can no longer stay buried."
-- LAURIE ELIZABETH FLYNN, bestselling author of The Girls Are All So Nice Here
"Ominous and intimate . . . the rare kind of read that's a mood in itself, with tension that dances just perfectly until the end. Immersive and so sharply observed, Amy Stuart delivers a gorgeous literary thriller to devour."
-- ASHLEY AUDRAIN, New York Times bestselling author of The Push
"Not only did I read this book in a single day, I read it in a single sitting. . . . Stuart cleverly turns the classic whodunit on its head; in this case we know who the murderer is--the victim's identity is the question mark. . . . A chilling exploration of how we cope with the things we've done, as well as those that have been done to us."
-- STEPHANIE WROBEL, internationally bestselling author of Darling Rose Gold
"A superb masterpiece. A Death at the Party brilliantly unfolds over the course of a single day, featuring a deliciously imperfect protagonist untwining her past as she prepares for the party of her life. Stuart's crisp writing and tightly paced plot made me hold my breath from the first line to the last. . . This is an absolutely stand-out book by a phenomenal talent."
-- SAMANTHA M. BAILEY, #1 bestselling author of Watch Out for Her and Woman on the Edge
"For fans of Gillian Flynn and Ashley Audrain, A Death at the Party is razor-sharp and salaciously riveting. A jigsaw puzzle of a story that will hook you instantly and reward you with a shattering, satisfying conclusion."
-- MARISSA STAPLEY, New York Times bestselling author of Lucky
"Virginia Woolf meets Agatha Christie in this taut psychological thriller."
-- Publishers Weekly
