Friends to Die For by Hilary Bonner
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A quick, light, easy read of a disparate group of Londoners who meet every Sunday evening at Joe Allen’s, Covent Garden. We learn a little about each. Then strange pranks occur, two dogs die and finally so does one of the group. Enter maverick policeman Vogel, a nice guy who looks as if he might well appear in future books. We then get more background to our group who all appear to have a secret of some sort and the plot thickens. All good fun.

If you like Hilary Bonner you might also like to read books by Ann Cleeves, Sophie Hannah and Nicci French.

Synopsis

Friends to Die For by Hilary Bonner

Friends: can you really trust them? The next thrilling novel from Hilary Bonner. A group of friends living in London's Covent Garden are subjected to the whims of a dangerous prankster. At first, whilst disturbing, the tricks are funny. But as they continue they become more serious and violent, until finally someone lies dead. As the remaining friends struggle to manage their grief and identify the culprit, suspicion soon falls close to home and secrets furtively kept hidden are brought to light. Alliances are formed, and the once-cosy group begins to turn on each other. Could one of them really be capable of murder?
