Psychological thrillers don’t get more glamourous than this. The lavish parties, expensive frocks and hedonistic escapades are like something lifted from the pages of a celebrity magazine – and a very dark one at that!

When Lucy Ross returns to the coastal town she spent a summer in over 20 years ago, it’s eerily coincidental that a body washes up on a nearby beach owned by her wealthy neighbours, the Whitlam’s. The gruesome discovery brings back troubling memories of a wild night Lucy spent at the Whitlam mansion, and the complex relationships she formed with the dysfunctional family as an impressionable teenager.

Don’t be fooled by the slightly slow start to Rebecca Heath’s debut thriller – once the real drama starts, you won’t look up or stop for breath until the novel reaches its thrilling climax. The characters will get into your head, the sexual tension will have you hot under the collar … not to mention the underlying tone of menace that will have you on pins throughout. The Summer Party has such an unpredictable, sinister edge – and a mass of brilliantly drawn, flawed characters –  no wonder it's quite so addictive.

If you’re a fan of Big Little Lies, and are looking for a summer read to lose yourself in for a few hours, it absolutely ticks all the boxes. Let’s hope there's plenty more by Rebecca Heath coming down the line.
