How to Kill Your Best Friend

How to Kill Your Best Friend

Author: Lexie Elliott Format: Hardback Release Date: 02/09/2021

How to Kill Your Best Friend is a taut psychological thriller. Featuring a small group of friends in a luxury hotel at its core, it's also an engaging lockdown mystery. Each main character has plenty of secrets to hide, resulting in a tangled web of lies that's desperate to be unravelled. And the two main narrators view key events very differently, adding to the intrigue. The book is beautifully written, with a slowburning narrative that reveals the dynamics of the group, amid vibrant descriptions of the beautiful island setting. The tension ramps up as the plot gains pace, with a sense of danger lurking in every corner and unease hovering below the surface. The book's twisty journey kept me guessing until its dramatic action-packed ending. As an aside, if you ARE thinking of killing your best friend, this book has plenty of suggestions, though read the pros and cons very carefully first.
