After relishing This Book Kills, we had very high hopes for Ravena Guron’s next YA murder mystery thriller — happily, Catch Your Death more than lived up to our expectations. With a killer closed-room concept (in this case, a dining room in a country mansion) and layers of top-notch plot twists, it’s suspenseful, witty and nigh impossible to put down. A true treat for YA mystery fans.

When a snowstorm strikes, three teen girls — Devi, Lizzie and Jayne — find themselves stranded in Bramble Estate, home to a wealthy philanthropist and her politician husband. That evening, as the girls are holed up in a wing of the estate, the philanthropist is poisoned during a family dinner, and it seems all in attendance have good motive for murdering her.

As the girls make shocking discoveries — a set of gold knives in the floorboards, a gun, dodgy documents — a labyrinth of secrets and lies mirror the mansion’s labyrinth of secret passageways.

The multi-voiced, multi-timeline narrative works a treat, as does the sprinkling of police interview transcripts. Then, as the girls fear they’re about to be picked off one by one, a brilliantly executed interlude segment skips to one year before the murder, laying bare entirely unexpected revelations, setting the stage for an explosive finale that reels with revenge, and a message that teenage girls are not to be underestimated.
