    Bailey Weggins, the Manhattan-based true-crime journalist, is in a good place. She's enjoying her regular gig at Buzz, a leading celebrity magazine, and hoping her first book will garner attention. In the love department, she's finally back in the game with her recently-turned-exclusive boyfriend, Beau Regan. When Beau heads out of town one early December weekend, Bailey accepts an invitation from her office friend Jessie to a music mogul's house in the country, hoping for a fun, relaxing getaway. But a weird tension settles over the houseguests....

    Story

    This was a poor continuation to the Bailey Weggins series. I don't recall Bailey being vapid, shallow, desperate or stupid, but in the years since her last appearance, she seems to have lost both her confidence and her common sense and was far more concerned with her dysfunctional relationship and if she would spend the holidays alone than with solving the mystery or self-preservation. There were several very obvious traps that she walked into haplessly and clear clues that she completely missed. By the end, I was actually hoping she would get Darwined out because her stupidity was so painful. Plot had promise but just limped along and supporting cast was underdeveloped and so it was actually really hard to care whodunit.

    This particular narrator was not the right choice for the series. While her delivery was fine, her voice has a gravelly, more mature quality that came off like a grandma talking dirty which was very disconcerting. She is better suited to Murder, She Wrote than Cosmo.

    New York Times best-selling author Tana French has won the prestigious Edgar, Barry, Macavity, and Anthony awards. As her third novel featuring the Dublin Murder Squad opens, 19-year-old Frank Mackey is waiting in vain for Rosie, who he’s supposed to run away to London with. But when she doesn’t show, Frank leaves Dublin without her—thinking never to return.

    Amazon Customer says: "Incredible"
    "Excellent suspense, well-developed characters"
    Overall

    This is the first book I have "read" by Tana French and I was consumed by it. The characters are well-developed, with snippets of memory brought in to explain their flaws and their complex relationships. The plot and denouement are quite compelling and left me feeling ambivalent about the outcome--I couldn't wait to pick up my iPod to get back to this story. Highly recommend.
