Publisher's Summary

Perfect strangers. A perfect holiday. The perfect murder.

Three British couples meet around the pool on their Florida holiday and become fast friends. But on Easter Sunday, the last day of their vacation, tragedy strikes: the 14-year-old daughter of an American vacationer goes missing, and her body is later found floating in the mangroves. When the shocked couples return home to the UK, they remain in contact, and over the course of three increasingly fraught dinner parties they come to know one another better. But they don't always like what they find. Buried beneath these apparently normal exteriors are some unusual kinks and unpleasant vices. Then a second girl goes missing, in Kent - not far from where any of the couples lives. Could it be that one of these six has a secret far darker than anybody can imagine?

Ambitiously plotted and laced with dark humor, Rush of Blood is a first-rate suspense novel about the danger of making new friends in seemingly sunny places.

Rush

If you could sum up Rush of Blood in three words, what would they be?

Oh i loved the intimacies of this book. The couples' lives laid bare. The twists and red herrings. Fine work.

What does Toby Longworth bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Again fine work
