"In Bad Tourists, Caro Carver expertly blends a locked room mystery with a story about midlife, female friendship, and trust. The result is a propulsive page-turner of a thriller that delivers enough twists to keep readers off-balance and desperately turning pages. It's fresh, dark, and totally unexpected--guaranteed to be a summer blockbuster!" --Nicole Baart, bestselling author of Everything We Didn't Say
"This book! This book was SO GOOD. I absolutely could not put this one down. Bad Tourists is one of the best thrillers I've read--it feels like White Lotus in book form, and kept me guessing the entire way through.

"A captivating, sinister, sophisticated mystery that had me reading at rapid speed and pulling the covers up to my chin. The twists are ingenious and the finale, utterly explosive. In evocative, propulsive prose, Caro Carver has delivered a sizzler. Armchair travelers and thriller lovers rejoice: this is the dark side of paradise, on steroids." --Jaclyn Goldis, author of The Main Character
