About the Author

With over 2 million copies of her books sold worldwide, number one bestseller Clare Mackintosh is the multi-award-winning author of I Let You Go, which was a Sunday Times and New York Times bestseller and the fastest-selling title by a new crime writer in 2015. It also won the Theakston Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year in 2016. Both Clare's second and third novels, I See You and Let Me Lie, were number one Sunday Times bestsellers. Her first three thrillers were selected for the Richard & Judy Book Club, and together have been translated into forty languages. After the End was published in 2019 and became an instant Sunday Times bestseller, and in 2021 Hostage flew straight into the top ten. Her new crime series, featuring Welsh detective DC Ffion Morgan, has been critically acclaimed, with both The Last Party and A Game of Lies hitting the Sunday Times top ten. Together, her books have spent more than sixty-five weeks in The Sunday Times bestseller lists. Clare is patron of the Silver Star Society, a charity based at the John Radcliffe hospital in Oxford, which supports parents experiencing high-risk or difficult pregnancies. She lives in North Wales with her husband and their three children.

Reviews

A superb blend of psychological thriller and police procedural...A gripping portrait of two fractured people merges with believable plot twists, and the author perfectly captures the ennui of a small town where gossip can destroy lives. Mackintosh consistently entertains. -- Publishers Weekly, STARRED review


Layers of historical and social context deepen the allure of this icy murder mystery set in North Wales...Come to meet the interestingly dysfunctional characters; stay to cheer them on with a full heart. -- Kirkus Reviews


Like the TV series Broadchurch and the novels of Ann Cleeves, this wonderful novel takes the reader--through twists and turns, and red herrings aplenty--deep within a community. Crime fiction is a whole lot better now that DC Ffion Morgan has arrived. -- First Clue


The writing is superb. Wicked fun, devilishly clever, with echoes of Agatha Christie. This is a party you won't want to miss. -- Patricia Cornwell, #1 New York Times bestselling author


Brilliant, so atmospheric....I fell in love with the courageous, complicated detective Ffion Morgan and I think readers will too. -- Ruth Ware, New York Times bestselling author of One by One


I loved everything about The Last Party. Taut, pacey and so atmospheric with brilliantly executed twists and wonderfully written characters. DC Ffion Morgan is my new favorite detective. An absolute triumph. -- Claire Douglas, author of The Couple at No. 9


Superb. A compelling murder mystery told with warmth, humor and enough red herrings to keep even the most seasoned crime reader guessing. -- C.L. Taylor, author of Sleep


Expertly plotted and relentlessly gripping, a perfectly executed murder mystery. The whip-sharp and deeply likeable Ffion leads the investigation, introducing us to a cast of brilliantly realized suspects. I loved every page. -- Lucy Clarke, author of One of the Girls


Clare Mackintosh is just getting better and better with every book. This is a wonderfully assured and gripping read. -- Peter James, creator of DS Roy Grace


Whipsmart dialogue, droll observation, great characters and some very nasty business make this another standout from Mackintosh. -- Linwood Barclay, author of Elevator Pitch


Detectives Leo and Ffion make a storming debut in this twisty, cleverly-layered tale of worlds colliding. -- Belinda Bauer, author of Snap


Her best yet. A picturesque setting, wonderful cast and a pair of detectives you'll love. Plus I guarantee you'll never guess whodunnit. -- Mark Edwards, author of Here to Stay


Hands down the best closed cast mystery I've read in years! Clues and suspects fill every page as two detectives search for the killer of a former music celebrity on a lake that borders England and Wales. Readers will adore the cast of characters and never guess whodunnit! Clare Mackintosh is absolutely brilliant. -- Wendy Walker, international bestselling author
